So, for a good week in a half I felt I was on the brink of death, and I had even accepted the possibility because yes, it was that bad. I missed a lot of school (2 days) and was unable to compete with my team. I felt useless, utterly so. But, there is an aluminum lining to this dark cloud. I realized once again how important life is and how I should make the most of it.
Very cliche, I am aware.
But even cliches provide lessons, no matter how corny.
