My Husband Got Me Sick :(

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Yep, it's that time of year.
Hubby has been feeling sick for the past few days, and he went to the Dr. yesterday, turns out he has strep. Fabulous.
Now, this morning, I wake up and my glands are swollen, my throat hurts, my ears are full and I feel like I could go back to sleep for about another day and a half!

Fortunately I don't have to work today but I do have class tonight, and work AND class tomorrow. I'm seriously contemplating using one of my 3 sick days for class tonight so that I don't get any worse, and can make it to work tomorrow, because I have an important meeting. Argh.

And, just to top it off, our family doctor doesn't have an appt. til Friday, so even if I am getting strep, I can't get antibiotics til Friday. Special, isn't it?

I should've slept in the guest room when I realized hubby was getting sick....

To be honest, if you have Strept throat, you probably shouldn't go to work with it. It's very contagious, and you could make your whole office sick. I remember when I had Strept Throat a few years ago, my boss sent me home and told me not to come back to work for a few days.

It's a good thing I'm not married, because my husband would really be feeling sorry for himself if he were sick, because I wouldn't sleep in the same room as him, if he were sick. In fact, I probably wouldn't even want to hang out with him in the same room, until he was over it and germ free.

I've been pretty lucky in the fact that I rarely catch anything from my fiance!

You poor thing - Its horrible when you are sick but you know you still have to go to work or class or both!

Hope you get better soon!

I hate being sick to, and now I am into my 4th week of this crap.

It started with something "going around".
Progressed to my throat and into my chest and will NOT leave.
Like the Mucinex commercial where they settle in for their honeymoon.
I am on the 7th out of 10 day antibiotics and most of the symptoms are gone except for a nasty cough. I have guaifenn(sp?)/lortab cough syrup I just came from getting my refill on.

So, GOOD LUCK with yours, this really sucks, I KNOW.
