Me so sick

Ok, in the spiral of everlasting sickness, I have caught another of my child's or my nephew's illnesses. This time? Mono. Yep, I shared my fork or food or drink with one too many a sick child apparently. That or my sister drank out of my cup when she had mono in April. The nephew had it in May and the Boy had it early June. (takes about four weeks to hit ya!) The Better Half is sure to get it also.

Here is me - Friday, I go to work, feeling fine, a bit of a sore throat but fine. By 10 am I have a fever, chills, goosebumps (it is 94 degrees outdoors and I have goosebumps). I leave barely make it home, light headed, can't see, etc. . . Sleep all afternoon and night and morning . . .

Saturday, I feel sick, but ok. I go about my daily business, by 5 pm. I can't walk, see, etc . . . it is now 98 degrees and I have buried myself under two winter blankets because I am cold. By 10 p.m. I have a temp. of 103, doctor says "bring her in if it's 104" it didn't get there. (so no real diagnosis of mono, but I know that is what it is).

Sunday, I feel sick but ok. I eat ice cream. First food in like three days. Yum. No fever, not well though.

Today. I am at work, wishing my fever would return. Still sick, but not contagious, unless someone frenches me or eats my food or drinks from my cup. Oh, or pisses me off, in which case, I intend to spit on his/her lunch!

Time for a desk nap!

I'm gonna come off sounding like an old Mother Hen, but do not push it, young lady! Mono can lead to heart damage and many other long term problems which I forget at the moment cuz it's been years since I had it. At the very least, pushing past your energy level will prolong the mono, so take this as one of Life's Little Instructions to cut out all the crud you don't want to do for a month or so.
