I woke up this morning and while the congestion seemed to be a little bit better, I still ached all over. Ugh. It took all the strength I had just to get out of bed. I got to the office and started to talk to the boss. Told her how I was feeling, and she said, “Go call your doctor.” But it’s just a virus! I don’t want to wait at their office for hours on end for them to just tell me that it’s a virus and it has to run it’s course. Fine. Fine, fine, fine … I’ll call. So I called, they called me back, we made an appointment for 2:45. Amazingly, I was out of there by 3:30. She confirmed that there is a bug going around, but it seems to be hitting people with allergies the most – that’s how it gets you. I guess it was a good thing I went in – she said I have the early signs of a sinus, ear and upper respiratory infection. It hasn’t moved into my lungs yet, but it was on it’s way. I was still running a low fever, and she questioned why I had been going to work. Why? Because in today’s society we get ourselves into the frame of mind where we think that calling in sick is wrong. I mean, it was just a low fever. Not to mention the fact that I’ve now learned my thermometer is off by a degree – because according to mine I didn’t have a fever at all. She wrote up a prescription for antibiotics, a decongestant, and sent me on my way. Hopefully I’ll finally get rid of this thing. I’m so tired of feeling like I ache from head to toe. At least I can finally breathe today – that’s a nice switch considering how the rest of the week has been!
