Reverse direction

take off... by Stig Nygaard on Flickr, licensed under Creative Commons

I got a call from the urgent care clinic I went to yesterday, where I was told my chest x-ray showed I had pneumonia. The radiologist read my x-ray today, and it turns out I don’t have pneumonia.

It reminds me of when I was a kid and I’d go to a session at the ice rink. The default direction was counterclockwise. About halfway through, someone would come on the PA and say, “ALL STOP SKATING. ALL STOP SKATING. REVERSE DIRECTION.”

That was much easier to do as a kid. I spent most of today reorienting myself to being sick with pneumonia. And now I don’t need those skills/thoughts/patterns. It’s a relief. But I am still sick. No skating at all for now.
