Hey Everybody! How’s it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! I’ve got a quick announcement and update on me, the content of www.leightdickey.com and the entire Beats and Speaks brand for you all today! I know I haven’t posted any audio or video content on my official website or my YouTube channel and the reason for that is because I have been sick for the past 4 days or so now. This winter has not been too kind to me, this month in particular, as I managed to have gotten both a stomach bug and food poisoning at the same time! YAY! NOT FUN! It has been one helluva ride the last few days. I could barely keep my head up and function on Thursday. I was able to leave the house for only a couple hours because when I got to where I do most of my work, a coffee shop I frequent, I couldn’t keep my head up, couldn’t focus, couldn’t do anything. My entire body felt SUPER HEAVY! My eyes kept shutting on me, I was aching, and I couldn’t finish the drink, as my stomach had other ideas! The video, which is above this paragraph will explain in more detail. (*SPOILER ALERT* I THREW UP! THEN JUST DECIDED TO CALL IT AND RETURN HOME TO REST!)
I thought by Friday that I would be fine, back at my normal speed and energy, but oh Ladies and Gentlemen, was I wrong! Friday came and felt worse! I couldn’t hold myself up and walk around my house without using my walker, I was so weak. I had next to no strength, I had no appetite, it was a terrible day. I felt like garbage. I managed to make it out of bed, even though I didn’t want to after sleeping about 11-12 hours. I made it to the couch in my living room, brought my blankets and pillows, turned on the Olympics and tried my best to just take it easy. The standing and walking was a REAL issue, as I have had to use a walker because of my Cerebral Palsy to walk and get around my hometown, but using it to get around my own home is SUPER RARE. I think this is only the second or third time I’ve had to use a walker to move around my home, since I began using one at about age 3. It was a REALLY SCARY couple days there, but I’m glad that I have seemed to turn a corner with this stomach bug, food poisoning thing!
On Saturday, February 10th, things started to look up! I didn’t have to use the walker as much as I had in the previous 2 days to get around my house. Although, I still was dealing with everything else from the stomach bug and food poisoning. I was trying anything and everything I could think of to try and help my recovery along, which included soaking in either the shower or bathtub 3 to 5 times per day, just to try and relax my bones and get some semblance of relief, at least mentally, anyway. It’s been an interesting weekend, to say the least. I’m glad that I’ve managed to bounce back now.
With today being Sunday, February 11th, I’ve made the decision to not just jump right back into my crazy production schedule and output, as I want to make sure that I have completely beaten this thing and am back to normal, back at a purely solid 100 percent, always ready to go. So, the announcement is that I am going to take this week, February 12th to 19th off to kick the last of this bug, fully recovery, and prepare more content for all of you around the world! So, thanks for sticking around, thanks for understanding, and I’ll see you all in a week or so. Thanks everybody! Talk to you all again soon!
