Ice Breaker – Sick Day

Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question.  The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community.  I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments.  While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

Yesterday, I had to take a sick day thanks to the wonderful flu bog that is sweeping across the country.  It’s been quite a while since I’ve had to take a sick day for being sick.  I spent the day sleeping, resting, relaxing, and trying to get better.

Question:  When have you faced an illness that has knocked you off your feet?

My Answer:  I’ve been pretty blessed with decent health.  Thankfully, I haven’t dealt with any major health issues.  The last time I was sick for more than a day was last year during my Christmas vacation.  I picked up a case of the stomach bug that knocked me off of my feet for a couple of days.  I could hardly move due to the aches and pains associated with the fever and nausea.  Other than that, I’ve been fairly healthy over the past several years.

There you have it – my answer.  Now, it’s your turn.  Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment.  I look forward to reading your response!

(By the way, if you’re going through something health related right now, I’d love to pray for you.  I hope you’ll leave a response, so The Stretched Community can lift you up.)
