Do You Want To Quit Facebook For A While Like Me?

There was a recent story that even though Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, people are getting so fed up or frustrated with Facebook that they want to take a break from it for a while.

That’s true for me! And here’s why…

The past two days, I have been sick (it’s actually been 4 days with this nasty cold, but the people who read Facebook don’t know this).  Here are my posts:

“Well….it was a long hard fight…but I finally lost. It’s official….I’m sick….dang it!”

“Day 2 of trying to get better…almost coughed up a lung last night around 12:30 a.m. Then had to clean the mess of a very sick dog who decided, for the second time, to use the downstairs bathroom as its own around 1a.m…and, let’s just say his insides are still trying to get used to the fact that it doesn’t get people food like it used to at its old owners……ugh…poor dog! Anyway, more medicine and sleep coming my way. Should be back to work tomorrow! Thank you for all the advice and well-wishes!!! They DO make me feel better! Goodnight! O:-)”

“Was able to do a cardio workout today and ran awhile on the treadmill…….and then proceeded to cough my head off…ugh….cold, go away!!!!! Couldn’t let Chad work out all by himself…”

From those posts there are people who didn’t think I was sick enough to stay home.

REALLY?????

I have been working out pretty regularly for the past 7 years, and each trainer I have had said if I was sick, it was okay to workout. It helps you. Here is a quote from the Mayo Clinic’s website:

“Mild to moderate physical activity is usually OK if you have a garden-variety cold and no fever. Exercise may even help you feel better by opening your nasal passages and temporarily relieving nasal congestion.

As a general guide for exercise and illness, consider this:

  • Exercise is usually OK if your signs and symptoms are all “above the neck” — symptoms you may have with a common cold, such as runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing or minor sore throat. Consider reducing the intensity and length of your workout, though, or you may feel worse. Instead of going for a run, take a walk, for example.”

That’s EXACTLY what I had. The fever I had on Saturday and Sunday (as evidence by the giant fever blister on my lip). Because it broke, I was able to do a little treadmill work and some pushups, situps, squats and lunges. Nothing too drastic like weightlifting or running 5 miles. It DEFINITELY helped me with my nasal passages. Not to be gross but I have never coughed up so much phlegm in my life!!

THAT’S the reason I’d like to forget all about Facebook!  I post random stuff I do all the time. I’m not the “I just ran to the bathroom” or “Getting ready to brush my hair” kind of poster. I post pics of Anderson, my band Sharon Buck Dixon Road, songs I love. So for people I know to complain that I wasn’t sick enough to stay home, it makes me so mad!

What do YOU think? Would you like to quit Facebook for a while? What makes YOU so mad you just want to step away?
