What an awful, awful night I had last night. I’d had a mild sore throat off and on on Tuesday, and a brief period when I felt a bit feverish, but wasn't feeling too bad. At dinner Tuesday night I was really tired, but I’m often really tired, so that didn’t mean much. But last night was just dreadful. The sore throat got lots worse, and I couldn't keep the least little bit of water down. Lying in my nice warm waterbed under the covers I got chills, and when I had to run to the bathroom to pee or throw up I’d shiver uncontrollably for five minutes or so after I got back in bed. Needless to say, I got very little sleep until the vomiting and chills stopped around 6:00am or 8:00am. By 1:30 this afternoon, when I woke up and decided I should send mail to work to let them know I wasn’t going to be coming in (I’d sent them a heads-up that I might not make it the night before), I was feeling a lot better and was able to drink a yogurt shake, although my sore throat was really bad. I actually got out of bed more than just to run to the bathroom or grab something from the fridge just now (around 7:00pm), and my throat still hurts but it’s a lot better than it was earlier today.
I’m sure glad this thing seems to be brief, and I really really hope I didn’t give it to anybody I was hanging out with last night.
I think the plan for tonight is to catch up on LJ and email, watch Moulin Rouge (which cathijosephine lent me), get some calories into me, and go to sleep nice and early, and hopefully I’ll be all back to normal tomorrow.
