SickPosted: August 16, 2012
I hate being sick. I ended up going home on Monday morning, not feeling well at all and being sick throughout the day. I semi worked and semi napped and semi watched TV all at the same time. For two days. I still have no idea what I actually had—I’m going with sinus infection. And the medicine I was taking (Children’s Sudafed because most medicines affect me really strongly so I find that partial doses of kid medicine works best. And yes, I still can’t take a full strength dose if it’s children’s) was making me sick to my stomach. It was a weird mixture of the grapeness and the empty stomach that I was taking it on. This meant my days were spent with a weird mixture of bed/couch and the bathroom. Maybe a little TMI but I’m a sharing person 😉
Work itself was interesting. I went in for about 4 hours Monday and decided I really needed to be at home in bed. Normally, I wouldn’t do this—and I say normally as in when I was paid hourly. If I was hourly, I’d use tons of hand sanitizer and Lysol (and cold medicine) but would stay at work. Not the best but when you’re paid hourly and you need the money? You make do. Thankfully, I can work from home so I don’t feel as guilty. Some things on Tuesday weren’t done do to me not having all my normal information and miscommunication this to my supervisor-he thought I’d done it and didn’t read the email where I was asking him to do it as all the information was at my desk.
I didn’t do any blogging stuff though. I didn’t even feel like trying to come up with a post and didn’t open up my Google reader. I also didn’t exercise at all, well, unless you count the sprinting from my bed to the bathroom as exercise. But I also didn’t eat much at all. My cat was nice and curled up with me for most of the two days.
The only nice thing about being sick was that when I went and purchased the medicine? I was able to use my medical fund. Go me for thinking ahead! Now to slowly start purchasing medicine for our medicine cabinet-Day/Nyquil and a few other things we normally use during the cold season. This way we won’t have to leave the house if we’re sick!
Wednesday was my first day back and my first day without sinus medicine. Still kind of feeling sick but not as bad as it could have been…
