bishi_wannabe just left for the airport, and will be gone for about a week. Sure, I can look after myself, but it's never the same as having someone else look after you. And no, I'm not aksing that any of you come to look after me, either. I can hardly talk and would feel guilty for being such poor company, such an inadequate hostess.
In the meanwhile, I'll eat my soup and hug my cat and take my medications (whee! it's cocktail hour at the drug counter!) and try to get better. Because if I'm healthy, I can see people and try to fill my days with distractions.
