I'm diseased...

So sorry that you didn't hear from me at all yesterday...

I'm deathly ill...

Monday night my throat started hurting, but nothing too serious. I climbed into bed that same night, fighting off a horrid headache. I tried BC Powder for the first time...which made my head stop hurting...but left me feeling like I had sand stuck on the back of my throat.

I went to bed and I woke up about 4 am Tuesday morning (I'm assuming after the BC wore off), shivering and aching from head to toe.

I dozed in and out until a more appropriate hour - found a thermometer and discovered that my fever was 101.5.

Obviously, I didn't go into work but I did go to class later that afternoon...like a champ. We were having two lecturers come in to discuss budgeting in high education institutions...something I didn't want to miss!

Sadly, I did miss some of it, as I kept nodding off.

That afternoon, before I left for class, I watched The Last Kiss. I thought it was a great movie. Very real and true to life.

I got back from class around 4:45 and fairly promptly went to bed. I slept until 10:00, watched TV until I was tired again...around 10:30, and then crawled back into bed.

I woke up this morning at 6:00 not feeling awful...just not great...and I took my temperature. 102.5. Awesome! I took Motrin and went back to bed...because nothing works better than sleep to forget about your pain. I woke back up 40 minutes later drenched in sweat.

Yay! My fever must have broken! Okay, down to 102...not so bad...

I just took it again and I'm holding steady at 100.5. It hasn't been below this thus far.

Hopefully, I will be in my usual, top form in no time!

On a happy note, my new furniture is being delivered today! Yay!

Hessel - Thanks for the get well wishes! You are, by far, my furthest away wisher well. :)

Salmon Pants - I wish I was faking!! Today was the perfect day to fake an illness, it being so beautiful outside. Unfortunately, I saw it from my couch in the den. :(

I had this last weekend!! Fever kicked my ass. Doesn't it suck to be sick when you live alone? I don't think I've had a fever in 10 years. Missed work on Monday but feel much better now. Hope yours passed as well.

Having coughed up every body organ in the past five days, I feel your pain.
Hope you are on the mend.

Mr. Write Now - It does suck to be sick and be alone. Luckily, I wasn't too alone...My mom came to take care of me during the days and my boyfriend took care of me one of the nights.

'Coma - I am very much on the mend! Thank God!
