I was sick, sick on Mon & Tue. Just been dead tired since then, laying in bed 12 hours. Not getting a whole lot of sleep over Ophelia has just made getting better worse. At least I haven't been sick like you for so many days! I have just had a headache & been sleepy.

I have a nagging cough that just won't go away. It is slowly getting a little better. Just when I think I am done, I start coughing again! It is so annoying! I had a runny nose and soar throat, but that has cleared up. Hope you fel better soon! Maybe try taking some Nyquill? It will help you sleep.

I hope you and all of our other sick friends get to feeling better soon / Nyquill doesn't phase me I was lucky enough to have medicine left over from the last time i was sick and needed a prescription- so i have cough syrup and benzonate pearls - they're really he only things that don't bother my astmah and other medical issues when i'm sick Hopefully they'll kick in soon, i just took my first does a few hours ago (i was trying to hold off on taking meds until i needed it - didn't want to take them if it was just a little cough- but i'm definitely getting sick so i gave in.)

Mine's not allergies. (I actually saw my allergy/asthma doctor on tuesday for some food allergy testing/exam) I'm definitely getting a cold I feel aweful though- I can't breath out of my nose at all so i'm having to totally breath out of my mouth- and well, not to sound weird- but it really freaks me out. I have asthma- so when i feel like i can't breath, it REALLY scares me. I feel like a fish out of water.

You know, it seems to me whenever I take a new job - it must be the new "people" and "germs" - but I'm usually sick for 2 or 3 months.

you know, i didn't even think of that- it is a completly different environment. I try to REALLY be clean though- i'm always wearing gloves and washing/sanatizing my hands/clothes. The environment is really dry there too though so my skin/allergies have been going insane. Maybe that doesn't help Other than that though- i love it there-it's such a good fit for me

Oh I know - it's just...different mutations of stuff you've already had, but now it's mutated in this other population and you have to build up antibodies to it.

(OK, does it sound like I would love to be an epidemiologist? LOL)

Thanks guys Ya'll are soo sweet. I hope those of you that are feeling bad start to improve soon as well. I felt aweful at work today- i seriously considered calling in sick...but i need the money so i went in. When i got there, i realized today i was supervising- i could not have been happier! I was in charge of the c. service people today who had to get their hours done- works to my advantage because i pretty much just show them what to do and they do it. Today i lucked out- i had 3 very nice respectful older teen guys. They had great attitudes and were exceptionally helpfull - which was great because i felt like crap. So they pretty much do all the hard manual work i normally do and i just supervised them and made sure they did their hours- pretty sweet deal considering i felt like i had been run over with a bulldozer! I've sounded like an 80yr old man with emphazema all day long I can't stop sneezing and coughing- i swear! Everything is making me sneeze. At this point- i'd like to curl up under a rock and hibernate Anyone else feel like sleeping right now? I'm thinking i'll try and sneak away for a nap in a bit if the foster kittens will let me sleep

Thanks/ Yea it's definitely not fun at all. I had some really sweet community service guys today though so that was soo nice (a lot of times we get punks who do not want to help and are angry at the world makes my job much harder- but when you get nice ones who are willing to help and genuinely love animals- well it makes things much more plesant- i gave them an AWESOME write up) I think what's also kicking my butt so to speak is the constant feedings between the different litters of foster kittens- we had TWO more litters of infant kittens come into the shelter today- at that point i felt like running far far away Thank GOODNESS two of the other foster moms that we sometimes use were able to each take a littler - right now i can't handle any more than what i have- i have the smallest and the sickest of the kittens and i'm up around the clock with them (and taking them to work with me) Colin was sooo sweet this afternoon though- on my lunch break i was trying to bottle feed all the kittens, AND find time to eat lunch- lol not working so he was like "I'll help!" so i showed him how to bottle feed the babies- it was sooo adorable! His trying to help really makes me feel better when i feel bad I'm really craving some Pho (vietnamese noodle soup we always eat) but i don't feel like driving to get it

That means it's time to call Colin in your most helpless voice and just lay it on thick!

I would, but he's on duty right now. When i was talking to him on his cell a little while back he got a call and had to let me go- so seems like they're busy tonight. Guess i have to find something around the house...
