WARNING!!! GRAPHIC CONTENT!!! WEAK STOMACHS NEED TO STOP HERE!!!
My last two days have been miserable. It actually started on Wednesday night. The coughing started and would not let up. It was pretty miserable trying to sleep and I didn’t really succeed. The spells would come on very quickly and then I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep. Then around 2 AM, another issue became very annoying.
I started vomiting like a volcano. It would not stop! Talk about a party that no one wants to attend. I sure didn’t want to be there. That continued until about noon. What a blast!!!
I even tried to go to work but when I got there, my supervisor thought I might not be the best for the phones. It is a call center and I would have to deal with customers while trying to keep my cookies down. The sup and I felt it was not worth it. So I turned around and went home.
I thought I was getting better on Thursday night. I was able to eat a couple of crackers and some toast. None of which came back up. I thought all was well until about 4 AM when the coughing returned. And that wasn’t all of it. I could not get warm. I mean all I did was shiver. I even had my heaviest and warmest comforter on and doubled and it wasn’t enough. I even had the heating pad on high and still no relief.
Then the stomach started all over again. For two and a half hours I was at it again. What a couple of days. Do you know what the worst part is? I got a flu shot for the first time in my life this year. FIRST EVER FLU SHOT AND I GET THE FLU!!! Obviously it was a different strain, but still. I received the message loud and clear. NO MORE WASTING MY MONEY ON A FLU SHOT!!!
At least this evening has been better. No stomach issues and the cough seems to have subsided as long as I don’t talk or lay down. Gee, I wonder how tonight will go?
