I assumed I was having my usual bad reaction to all the crazy pollen filtering through the air because I can't breathe through my nose at all, have a sore throat, cough, and neon green/yellow snot, and have blown through a box of tissues and two cloth hankies. TMI, but I don't care...god, the mucus has been epic.
What was first thought to be allergies (I hate Spring and I'm allergic to everything), has more closely matched the symptoms of 's respiratory virus and after a few days of incubation (I'm sorry but I can't avoid and not kiss the man I love. I feel lonely like the world is ending if I can't see, hug, or talk to him for even a day). So yeah, I too now have it and have had a fever since around noon today but regardless of it, I continued working while it got progressively worse as the day wore on and I almost fainted in the bathroom. Yikes. Now, everything hurts. My head is pounding and I have no idea how I'm going to sleep if I can't friggin' breeeathe. I want to sleep. I'm exhausted and on the verge of collapse. Just. WHYYYYY.
...I rescind my post from a few days ago on facebook about being the only one who hasn't had the flu. I have inadvertently invoked Murphy's law of "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."
Doc says he can't do anything. It's a virus. Yes, I'm contagious and should wear a face mask if I have to venture out into the public (apologies to anyone I may have inadvertently touched/infected despite using the hand-sanitizer a million times today) and there's really nothing that can be prescribed to me that can't be found over the counter at any drug store.
So yeah. That's how my day has been.
