Oh my word. Shoot me now. Because I feel like I was run over by a Mack Truck.
Now, I’m not normally one to complain about being sick too much… I can handle a sore throat. I can handle a stuffy nose. The only time I really call into work is when I’m barfing sick.
Well, this time I’ve been hit with something horrible.
- Stuffy nose that started the other day… totally bearable
- Achy shoulders, neck, arms, legs… UGH
- Ears hurt….
- Throat hurts. And I mean, like… it feels like someone has taken a serrated knife and just jabbed it all down the front of my throat. I woke up in the middle of the night and thought my throat was going to cave in.
- Cough cough cough
- Raspy voice
- Took a hot, steamy shower this morning and got nauseous and threw up.
Diagnosis: I’m dying. Ok, well, maybe not, but its enough that I called in today (totally unheard of for me when I have "just a cold") and I am canceling my session this afternoon (can’t be getting those maternity clients sick!). I have a doctor’s appointment at 11am. I’ve never had strep throat before, and I’m assuming that maybe this is what it feels like? I have no clue. And, I didn’t get my flu shot yet, so maybe its that.
Thank goodness my mom was watching Porter today so I dropped him off down there to play for the morning while I lay around here at home and hack my germs all over everything.
Ok, I’m off to bed until my appointment.
