Turbulent Tuesday: Short Edition

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

So, for this week's Turbulent Tuesday I'm keeping it short and sweet whiny.

I went to work today, with the never-ending headache. About noon, I felt much worse. Which is hard to imagine considering how shitty I felt this weekend. No retching, but just all over horribleness. Headache, chills, aches. All of it.

Not good.

When I got home from work, I had a 100+ degree fever. When I took my temperature a few minutes ago it was much closer to 101 degrees. I have a headache and a wicked sore throat. I think it's probably a virus, but either way I feel like I'm being dragged through the gutter right now. Which is a fancy way of saying I feel like a big pile of crap.

I skipped both my labs tonight, which will I'm sure cause some totally unnecessary complications next week, but there was no way I could even be upright for 6 hours, let alone engaged in the class.

And now I have to sacrifice another sick day and stay home tomorrow. I know I shouldn't feel guilty for missing work when sick, but I do. Especially because I stayed home yesterday (when I didn't have a fever, but did feel like crap). But obviously, I am not well, and maybe if I wallow in bed tomorrow, study some and rest a lot, I'll be back on my feet for real on Thursday.

So my Turbulent Tuesday was short and unpleasant. How was yours? Tell me all about it (in the comments), even if it was good. Misery loves company, but we also love a good party pooper.

You know the drill - fluids and plenty of sleep. Get better!

I think teachers always feel guilty when we stay home sick. I know I do. Plus, we have to get ready for a supply teacher, which is usually more trouble than it's worth. And I just plain don't like giving up one of my hard-earned sick days, even though that's what they're there for.

I hope that whatever this new hell is passes quickly.

Sounds like you have the flu (I'm not a real doctor, but I would LOVE to play one on tv). In the old days, doctors would tell us to "take two aspirins and call me in the morning." Today, they say, "we can fit you in for an appointment in three weeks."

Take care of yourself, honey (I'm older, you're sick...I get to call you honey). This will pass quickly. Personally, I think it's your body's way of slowing you down and making you take care of yourself...otherwise you would just keep going.

As for the Chiari symptoms that have been plaguing you for far too long, why won't Dr. Frim see you???? He is supposed to be a miracle worker.

Well, no matter. I know another one. I'll go straight to Him. God, help Katie with her pain, with her symptoms. Direct her path to a place that will help her alleviate these problems and keep her free from anymore.

(Okay, I try to keep it light and airy usually, but enough is enough. Time to go to the top!)

I think I am happy today to be living in Southern MN rather than Northern like I imagine Amanda to be in - because we only got rain!

My Torrential Tuesday sucked! It started with a pissy 68 year old assistant on a rant because I didnt unload my car with HER desk contents into the new building, but rather made her do it. Sorry, but your ass did not do a single thing to help with this move and I am sick of it!

And then there was the phone issue. Too long to go into here.

I hope your headache/fever are gone soon!

How could you predict today would be worse? Feel better!

Today sucked. The end.

Oh, and I hope you're feeling better tomorrow.

I've been out of work since June. Today I found out I'm being sued over a car accident I had back in June, 2007.

Will the school accept a note from your hubby that you really are sick?!
This is a long section but it's filled with such words of comfort....praying right now!
Revelation 21:1-7 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

There was a crazy woman at Mass yesterday morning (no, it wasn't me...well, I wasn't the one causing the ruckus). I had a job interview (yay!) that sucked (boo!). My long-distance relationship, tentative to begin with, is now even more longer-distanced.

That's all.
