So, I am sick. Not just scratchy throat, my head hurts sick, I'm sick. I am NOT a great sick person. I woke up this morning with a 101 fever and thought I would go in and do sub plans. My husband said if you're going in to do that, you should probably just go in. Great advice hubby! I got to work to hear everyone say, "you look and sound like poop!" So I got my sub plans ready and was out of there by lunch.

By the time I got home my fever had dropped, thanks Tylenol, to 99. I went to my doctor's appointment and thought I was going to die. I was shaking, my eyes were watery, my head felt like it was going to pop off my head and when I cough, look out! On the way home, I realized I probably should've had someone take me, as I felt like I was going to fall asleep at the wheel.

I came home, took my meds and went to sleep. I slept for a few hours and woke up shivering, despite the fact that I had on sweats, slippers, t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt, sweatshirt and 2 blankets! I took some motrin this time and it wasn't helping. Finally after I ate an apple, I began to sweat, sweat, sweat. I'm still not feeling 100%, but I'm feeling a little better. I'm going to take some more motrin for a good nights sleep. Hopefully I'll feel better in the morn. I heard that everyone who's had this nasty thing has lasted awhile. Please, let me feel better NOW!!! I HATE BEING sick!

UGH is right. Oh no! I hope you get some rest and feel better soon. Being sick is the worst.

Sounds like a bad cold/flu. Teaching is the worst profession to be in when you're sick. I envy the people that can just call in and then roll over and go back to sleep.
