Well, folks, this is the first time I've been able to sit up-right in the last 24 hours. Seemed to have some kind of a bug; or worse, food poisoning. I was sitting here playing video games, began to cramp-up and *puft* I ended up spending a great deal of yesterday and today racing between the bathroom and bed.
I'm writing this not in an act of sympathy, but out of mere curiousity. My partner was here (thank GOD!) fetching me Pepto (when I could keep it down) and Sprite and making sure I hit the targets--as it were. And now, as the fog clears, I'm wondering dear friends--what do you do when you aren't feeling well?
Be it the flu or mild food poisoning, how do you survive? I've been only been able to munch of a bit of bread and cold compresses have been my savior.
Do you have methods that a person could use for future reference? Soup? Shot of whiskey?
We were close to going to the emergency room to get fluids to stay down. Plus, I realized, I wasn't combating the sickness, I was just letting it run it's course. Probably would have been better to get something, even if it were introventously (sic).
But I hate going to the emergency room. Detest it. Would rather just crawl into the corner and wallow in my own pity.
We didn't go.
The fever is still there, but I feel MUCH better. Especially since it's been a few hours since I had food. Tomorrow is the first day of the second quarter. I have to be there! Besides, I find that the sooner I get back into things, the better.
