What a terrible time to fall ill- only my second week at work, plus most of my co-workers are falling ill at the same time.
Yesterday started out fine- went to work, enjoyed myself in class, and increasingly felt less of a n00b at work.
Until, that is, the final class of the day- my throat hurt, and I felt my body temperature rising. I felt like collapsing there and then! Thankfully, C had lozenges in her bag, and that carried my voice through the lesson (in which my department head sat in- imagine that! Sick, and forced to perform).
When I went to see the doctor, I told him I was running a temperature but when he saw my throat he went “TSK TSK TSK I am more worried about this throat”. I am worried about this throat too- I am at my most miserable when I can’t talk or sing.
I have a LOT of meds to eat over this weekend I tell ya. $70 worth of loving from the 24 hour clinic. Gah!
Today was spent in bed (thank you Mama for changing my bedsheets last night before I came home from the Doc) in and out of consciousness. I have no appetite, but I think I can finish a sticky bun from Simply Bread.
Time for another round of meds, another Kodomo cooling patch on my forehead (I know it’s for kids but I like it), and another round of dreamless sleep…
