Work, Being Sick, More Work

Last night my throat started hurting. I hoped it was not that big of a deal, but by this morning I knew I was getting sick. It really couldn't have come at worse time. I had to be at work at 7:30am and would work until 11am and then would come back at 4pm and work until midnight. So not feeling well was not in the plans and it really needed to wait another day.

I was OK in the morning, but just really tired. I could tell I was starting to get a fever and tried my hardest to ignore it. I got home around noon, took Sophie for a walk and laid down. I ended up sleeping for 3 hours and even then I had trouble getting out of bed.

When I got to work for part 2 of my day, I took my temp and it was 99.4. The person I was working with told me to go home, but I knew that I would probably need Monday off so I ended up staying. By the time I left I had a fever of 101. And now that I am home....I can't seem to fall asleep. You know that feeling of being so tired it's hard to fall asleep...yea, I think I passed that point around 10pm.

The good news is I am off until Tuesday. I was suppose to meet M&M at church tomorrow, but I really don't think I have the energy to.

I had done so well this winter in not getting sick, but this is the second time in the last month that I have been sick. What's up with that?
