I swear I have been sick more this school year than ever. I think I had a cold/sinus thing going on this fall, due to my allergies. The first week of November I got struck by a nasty 48 hour flu bug (and I am thankful it only lasted that long), and now, this?
Friday afternoon, I noticed slight pain, more of a discomfort than pain, when I swallowed. I met up with some friends for beverages and was home shortly after 9pm. I woke at 1am and was in excruciating pain, popped a few ibuprofens and went back to bed. I slept most of Saturday, but had that same pain, aches, and what I was to find out later - a fever.
A friend took me into the walk-in clinic Saturday evening and sure enough, Strep Throat. I have never had this before. And boy was I in pain. I think my neck and lower back hurt twice as much as my throat. A co-worker of mine had Strep last week and compared her aches to pregnancy. I told my friend last night that I wasn't going to have babies if that's what it was going to feel like.
Turned out I had a 102.1 fever. My usual body temp is below normal, so this freaked me out a bit.
I got me some drugs and was suprised to see I was able to sleep from 8pm until 530 this morning. I was only awake for about 5 hours between 10pm Friday and 530am this morning.
I had so much planned for this weekend: cleaning the house, the slushy snow needs to be removed from the driveway, watching the Vikings game with friends, and now here I lie at 630am on Sunday having done absolutely nothing in the past 36 hours. And, I will be watching the game alone. hhmmph.
Oh well. Hopefully I will be ready for work tomorrow...
