And then she passed out...

Today I woke up with a tiny headache. I took some advil (AKA sugar coated joy), ate a granola bar, hopped on the metro and got to work. While at work the tiny headache evolved to blinding pain, the blinding pain evolved to dizziness, and then the nausea hit.

I found myself cuddling with a recycling bin in my cube. I made it through the day by pure luck. I have no idea what happened, it was like an avalanche of germs.

My body seriously never saw it coming. This was me.

Also, if you Google "sick" that may be the first image to come up. I thought about drawing a sick, dying, green cartoon me but... that requires a lot more energy than I could possibly muster.

I came home and promptly pitched myself back into bed. And slept. And slept. I woke up and realized that I never finished:
1) my recipe post for the week
2) my illustrations for my comic 
3) taking off my shoes and coat

So, I'm updating this here to let you know that, should I not survive this random illness, you all are super great. And I've always appreciated the fact that you didn't spaz at me for not always sticking to my word about when I'd post. And the way all of you supported me through the many MANY times blogger failed me. In conclusion, you guys are awesome.

I am now going to go medicate and sleep again. A new comic and shiny new recipe will be posted upon my survival. 



  1. Sleep well. We will wait for you until whenever it is you get back to us.

  2. Oh no! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you survive this. Seriously, I hope you get better quickly. It sounds like a doozy of an illness so you're excused for not posting or remembering to remove your shoes.

  3. Feel better, Meaghan...Post to let us know how you are! (And if you need a chicken soup recipe, just let me know. :-))

    Sending good thoughts...

  4. Hope you get well soon, Meg! Sleep well

  5. Oh my! I hope you are feeling better soon! I wanted to let you know about my cookbook giveaway that is going on right now until July 16th. Stop on by to enter! Hope you are having a great week :)

  6. Aw man. Poor you!
    (This is kind of the thing that people say when they realize they're pregnant, but I'm assuming... you're not..? )
    Ha. Did I totally freak you out?

  7. Still have your blog as one I follow. Sincerely hope you'll be back at it soon.

  8. I seldom leave a response, however i did a few
    searching and wound up here "And then she passed out...".
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of these comments come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I'd like to
    keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you
    make a list of all of your public pages like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?
