2007 is really not going well

I'm sick. AGAIN. Yes. And now it's not some damn cold or ear infection. Started yesterday afternoon at work. Ended up puking and feeling dizzy and sick. Even ended up calling Nick to pick me up because I didn't think I could make it the few minutes home. And got worse last night. Eventually, everthing came up. Really not pleasant. I'm still feeling nauseous, but at least not throwing up.

Oh yeah, AND that time of the month started. So I have cramps AND nausea. And a headache because none of my meds stayed down. I felt so incredibly guilty calling in to work this morning after this past month of stuff on and off, but ooph, I still don't feel well. When will it stop?!? I did feel pretty damn good for about a day. Then this flu-like thing came around and kicked my ass back to the couch. It's a good thing it's a really comfy couch. I slept on it last night. With a garbage can. You know, just in case. Ugh.

I cannot say enough how wonderful Nick has been through all this though. Just wonderful.

Good Lord! I'm so glad that you have Nick to take care of you. A few years back I was sick from Jan 1 to sometime in March. That's when I started to eat better, get the flu shot and carry hand sanitizer with me everywhere. People laugh at me but I haven't been as sick as I was three years ago now. (Bob and I both got pnuemonia (which started with a stomach virus) and then it went downhill from there)

I really do hope that you start to feel like your old self again!! I know there are people who think Hand Sanitizer is the juice of the devil (my friend is a teacher and recoils when I bring it out before eating at the mall) but I really do think in this day and age, it's helpful when you can't get to a sink to wash your hands.

Sorry, that was a bad tangent.

Get Better!!!

How awful! I hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself!

p.s. I agree with CindyS about the hand sanitizer. There's just too much crud out there, waiting to get us!

Well I hope that once you battle this, you will be better and have gotten all of your sickness for the year out of the way.

I caught what I thought was a slight cold last week, and yesterday it turned into a full fledged upper respirortary infection with the voice that makes me sound like a transexual waiting for the drugs. I hope I am better by Monday. I just can't stand the pressure in my chest.

Rest up over the weekend, and don't worrt about work. I am sure they rather work a little harder than catch whatever you have. And hug Nick extra tight tonight.

Feel better, and Nick sounds so nice (me, jealous?)lol

OH no! Nicole, sending major ((HUGS)) your way.

The hand sanitzer advice is good for the future.

My new boss believes in it big time. When she's sick, she buys us all a supply and makes us use it.

She's had about three colds in three months... but we've been OK>
So maybe it works?

I'm glad you have someone to give you TLC. When natural germ warfare hits you like this, you need all the help and support you can get.

I hope you get better every day in every way.
