I have been very healthy all of my life. Suddenly I'm 65 and feel frail. Mostly I feel this way when I am sick with a cold or the "crud" as I have been for the past four days. I've never been down with something so simple for so long.
I think it must be related to age. I used to bounce back from illness the way I used to bounce back from injury: quickly, and with a minimum of fuss and self-pity.
My wife has five days off from work, and it is our anniversary to boot, so we plan on celebrating. I just hope that my headaches and phlegmy coughing go away. Otherwise, I won't be very good company.
