Ugh.

I feel so much worse today than yesterday. I've been running a fever off and on - when I am, I'm absolutely freezing and every nerve ending is on fire. When it breaks, I'm beyond weak (like right now). I was going to call in a bit late so I can go to Target and get some Dayquil, but methinks I'll have to go during my lunch. I had originally planned to leave an hour and a half prior to my shift, but I ... well, now I start in twenty minutes.

Couple the yellow mucus, weakness, fever, etc. with the fact that my uterus is rebelling worse than usual. PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINy pain pain pain. I don't have any ibuprofin at home, so I must wait until I get to work and raid my locker.

I just have to make it through the next nine hours, then will be off tomorrow.

Woops, spoke too soon, there are the severe chills again.

Aww, Aub... have you tried Aleve Cold & Sinus? LOVE IT for when I can't take NyQuil.

I haven't - my boss recommended Alka-seltzer so I spent my entire lunch yesterday going to Target. I grabbed the first one I saw and came back and showed him the box, saying "I don't understand how this is going to help my COLD, but should acid reflux occur, I'll be covered!" He laughed that I was so sick I didn't have the common sense to find the cold version instead of the antacid one.

call in sick or you might prolong your illness

I'm off today, at least. I saw the schedule for tomorrow, and I think that should I desperately need to, I would be covered for tomorrow. Hell - they know how sick I am just from yesterday, so...

I know, right?!? I was thinking that I've been sick a freaking lot this fall, when I hadn't been sick for almost a year before. Then I realized that this time last year, from May to April or so, I got rides to and from work, so I was almost never out in the elements, unlike now where I'm walking to and from for a half hour each way, no matter the weather. I had never put much faith into the thought that being out in the elements would cause you to get sick, but now....?

Aww, thanks though! I was reading up on it - it pretty much has to run its course. I love how they recommend lots of rest, but it's almost impossible to freaking sleep when you're this clogged up, let alone sleep WELL.

My love, working while sick is pretty much the epitome of a day spent in hell... those 9 hours seem to be almost over, so I hope you get that much needed rest. :)

Oh hells, yes. I remember feeling like I had been there for a week and only an hour and a half had passed. I'll try to force myself to take a nap today!
