Nice! My long stretch of days off and I'm sick!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I had a tickle in my throat and a mostly dry cough. Occasionally my cough was loose.

Last night I started to feel a bit stuffy, not bad: Vick's Vaporub shoved up my nose along with the humidity of my CPAP machine helped. Towards morning I started to cough. It was a dry cough, but I felt there was stuff there wanting to move. Once I did get out of bed, I spent about 15 minutes hacking up a lung until I finally cleared my chest.

I went for my massage today. Didn't feel bad. Just coughing. no runny nose or anything. I stopped at the pharmacy and picked u[ an expectorant cough syrup so that I can clear the mucous.

I want to buy a bed with my next pay cheque next week, so I picked up a shift today at work on my day off. Again, I was just coughing. As the evening wore on, I was coughing more and more and it was more congested. Not only that but my throat was feeling raw from coughing and I sounded like Kermit!

Before I left work I took my temperature. It's 37.4 C (99.5 degree F. Normal is 37 C or 98.6 F). Now that is not really a temperature to be concerned about.

However, my usual body temperature is much lower than normal. It usually is 36.3 or 36.4 C (97.34 F). So when my temperature gets to 37.4 C (99.3 F), that is equal to someone having a temperature of 38.1 C (100.6 F).

My long stretch of days off and I'm sick!

I was thinking about picking up a shift tomorrow too so that I could have a full time pay cheque to put towards my soon to be new bed and maybe a new dresser and end table. I don't think I'm going to be doing that!

Funny though. Other than a cough and a temperature that I don't even feel, I feel fine!

I have a better chance of winning the lottery!

Whatever it is though, sucks! As much as I'm upset about being sick on my days off, at least I'm not losing any pay!
