Perhaps it was a bad idea to tout the fact that I haven’t had a cold or flu in ages. Among the stress of moving back to the United States, searching desperately (and unsuccessfully) for a “real job”, and making some recent changes to my diet, my immune system seems to have taken a dive. My dad has been sick with an awful flu for the past few days, and I’m worried that I may have caught it. That, or it’s a nasty Herxheimer Reaction (detox reaction) from introducing some new supplements from my nutritional therapist. Hard to tell, because the symptoms are pretty much the same: headache, sore body, sore throat, chills. (More on that later: I hope to start documenting some of my N=1 experimentation here. Apparently there is a major stress response happening in my body right now. There are a few things that aren’t working quite right, so she has put together a plan for me which I started yesterday.) Either way, I’m feeling pretty crummy.

Anyway, all that to say that I will probably be out of commission for a few days. I’m going to do everything I know how to recover as quickly as possible, but I don’t know when I’ll be able to post next. I appreciate your patience and I will be back as soon as I can! I have some ideas for fantastic tutorials coming up soon. 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating the holidays with family and friends, and I will hopefully talk to you all soon!
