Being sick isn’t as fun as snow days

Seriously, being sick is a pain.  I actually feel a little better, but still have a fever and am not able to keep anything down…so, still trapped in my house.  See, if I felt good, being stuck at home would be nice, a treat.  But being sick finds me either in bed or on the couch, with just a little stumbling around the house trying to do a few of the basic housekeeping chores.  What a waste of time.

I talked with the nurse at my doctor’s office today…they’re calling in another prescription for me.  And she told me to stay at home until I go 24 hours without a fever..okey dokey…fun, fun!

You know, I kind of feel guilty for abandoning my co-workers, but I’d feel even worse if I gave them what I have…but I really am going to work on improving my immune system…simply have to eat a healthy diet.  I know it, it’s just a matter of doing it.  But I’m making plans for when I can actually start eating again.  I’m tired of getting sick…

I woke up this morning after being sick all night, crawled out of bed and got ready for work.  After throwing up three times in less than an hour, I just gave up and took the day off work.  I hated to do that to everyone since we had a big old truck delivery today, but I think they’d rather I not give them whatever it is I have…feels a lot like the flu, maybe a mild case…hopefully I’ll feel better in the morning. 

One positive about being sick is the calorie intake certainly plummets!!  All I really tried to do today was drink, was hospitalized once years ago with dehydration and don’t want a repeat of that.  I’m still feeling a little icky (yes, that’s a medical term, ask any doctor), but I hope I’m on the mend.

Now on to the negative part of being sick, beyond the obvious ickiness of it, no exercise.  Just a lot of sleeping and trips back and forth to the bathroom.  Blah.  Felt so bad for most of the day that I didn’t even log on to the computer…now you know that’s some kind of sick!

Spooky enjoyed the day though.  She slept cuddled up to me all day.  Then I came downstairs to watch Days of Our Lives and she came down to sit on my lap as I’m sitting on the stability ball.  She kind of watches television, or at least the fast movements.  See, I think she actually sees what’s on the tv because she loves to watch the bird shows on Animal Planet or PBS.  Hmm…should I leave the tv on for her when I go to work?  Nah…I think she spends most of her day under the comforter on my bed.

So I got a flu shot a week ago, do you think there’s any possibility that I’m feeling sick because of that?  I’ve always poopood that, and still don’t really think you can get the flu from a flu shot.   What do you think?
