Yesterday afternoon my throat started to get scratchy. I drank some hot tea & had a few cough drops, but didn't pay much attention to it (or the slight cough I had developed along the way). With all the excitement over my cupcake disaster, it didn't dawn on me until about 8:00 that we hadn't eaten dinner yet...and I wasn't even hungry.
I tried to eat something small, even though I had no appetite, then spent the rest of the night working on the ass imprint I've started to make on my couch - & that is where I should have stayed.
However, at 11:00 my oldest "friend" called to ask if I would go to the ER with her. She noticed a black mark on her foot two weeks ago that she never did anything about...& it slowly became a blistered, pussy open sore. Even though I haven't seen my "friend" in 6 months (because her new friends are all way cooler than me with their drinking & frivilous money spending), I've know her for for almost 15 years, so if she wanted an ER buddy in the middle of the night I was more than happy to oblige.
On the drive home at 1:30 I started to ache all over & the coughing had gotten worse.
I've slept most of the day away between episodes of sweat & chills. Despite all my sleep, I have no energy & coughing has become a huge undertaking. My chest feels foggy & I'm so achey that even my skin hurts.. I just took my temperature, & it's 100.4.
Wanna hear the best part? I know you do, so here goes...my health insurance from my old job was cancelled as of July 31st. That's right - yesterday. FML...really, really hard.
I absolutely have to be at work tomorrow. I'm still within my 90-day probation period, so any missed time is a big deal. So please, put all your good energy into the universe for me in hopes that this is a 24-hour thing.
I cannot be responsible for infected a bunch of elderly people with already comprimised immune systems, 'cuz that just ain't right.
