Monday Morning Blahhhhhs

Woke up this morning feeling like death warmed over. Talk about the Monday morning blaahs.

I tossed and turned most of the night, as I have the last couple of nights, and have been sick most of the weekend with a stuffed head, sore throat, and a bit of a hacking cough. All of this since about Thursday of last week, ever since I started taking the new medication. And all of this while I'm taking Biaxin for the toe problem. I think I've had...some sort of bug since CanGames, and that coupled with the stress and fatigue of running at the convention just made it hit me later in the week. This morning, my head is blocked to an infinite degree, and I can barely speak. Have no appetite whatsoever, but will force myself to eat a boiled egg and a piece of toast.

Called work, and will be working from home. Apparently, half the folks at work are out sick today.

Will post about the weekend later, when I get a chance, and if I feel well enough to do so.

Ill Monday

Today was much worse than I could have imagined.

As mentioned in the previous entry, I had a boiled egg for breakfast around 9:15 am or so, and then planned to do some office work from home. I remember sitting down on the couch to call the office, and the next thing I know it's almost 3:00 pm and there are about fifteen messages, all of them annoyed, from my boss.

It turns out that in the office of twenty-four or so people I work with, only four (!!) showed up for work, and my friend Donna left the office to go home and be ill around 1:45 pm.

I apologised to my boss profusely, and then told him that I would do my best to work from home for the next few days. Hopefully, I will be able to go in to the office on Friday, but for now one day at a time as they say.

I don't ever sleep in the daytime, except when I am well and truly ill. The fact that I'm eating almost nothing right now is another good indicator of my body being very ill.

The only good news appears to be that the anti-biotic that I'm taking is doing the job with my toe.

Anyway, I'm off to have a bit of tea, and perhaps add a dollop of blackberry jam to it. Not really hungry, just out of sorts completely. That, and completely fuzzy in the head.

Going now. Tea awaits.
