I hate being sick

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I felt completely fine last night when I went to bed. Around 3 something this morning I started tossing and turning and just couldn't get comfortable. At 6:30 I felt terrible and decided to get up and take my temperature just in case. It was 101.0! I don't even remember the last time I had a fever. By 9:00 it was up to 102. Other than the typical fever related body aches and stuff, the only other symptom I had was a really severe headache. Tomorrow was supposed to be my last day at my job, and when I called in this morning my boss acted like she thought I was faking it.

I went to the doctor at 11:30 and by that point I could barely even sit up straight, it just hurt too much to hold my head up. The doctor said I have an Enterovirus and thought I was on the verge of having meningitis. Great. She said absolutely no way to working with children, so I guess I'm missing my last two days at my job. Oh well. The only thing that sucks is that those two extra days of pay would have been helpful b/c my next job doesn't start until Sept 7th. My doctor said this can last anywhere from 3 to 6 days, and to expect to feel terrible for the rest of the week. Oh boy, I can't wait.

Wish me luck in recovering from this quickly. I'm not looking forward to more of this. At least Tylenol and Ibuprofen are keeping my fever at bay for now.

Oh Honey!!! Hope you feel better soon!
Get the paperwork from the doctor and submit it to your boss and HR - you should still be paid; these are sick days...
Rest rest rest, and pleeeeaaaassseeeee... don't be a hero - if you feel worse, got to the doctor immediately. Not wanting to scare you, but not going to the doctor in time was what killed my grandma of meningitis.
With this err on the side of caution, ok??

I bet you do feel awful. Lots of for a quick recovery!

In the mean time be sure to drink plenty of fluids since you've got a temp! Stay curled up in bed this week. Maybe rent some movies?

Feel better!!
