It All Started on Thursday...

"New guy" took me out to eat Thursday night, and immediately I started getting a little cough and throat clearing. I have issues with MSG, so I assumed something I ate had it in it.

The cough occured throughout the night, and I woke up Friday morning with a scratchy throat. Thinking it was allergies, I took some allergy meds. By Friday afternoon, I started feeling feverish and had a slight sore throat.

Woke up around 2am this morning with a temp of 100.4 and a raging sore throat. I felt like I had someone sitting on my chest. In short, I was miserable!

I haven't been sick since before I had my tonsils removed almost 2 years ago, and my body chose to pick a week when I had plans to go stash shopping! That's right, Ranae and I had plans to meet some other stitchers (like Cindy) at Welcome Stitchery. I'd really been looking forward to this, too! :(

I started feeling better around 2pm today. I still have lots of chest congestion, a sore throat, and a slight headache. But, at least the fever is gone and I don't feel like I'm dragging a 300lb. body around.

Poor thing, not sure which is worse the cold or missing out on stash shopping.
Get better, CJ ok;-)

Sorry to hear you got sick. I'm glad you are starting to get better though. Hugs! Take it easy this weekend. Maybe "new guy" will bring you some soup.

Donna said...

Oh man! Missing a stash shopping day is the pits, but being sick is even more the pits. I am glad you are feeling better!

Nancy said...

Bummer, the best laid plans!! Oh well, maybe you feel good enough to stitch instead. How's JG coming? cough, cough......

Awww...poor thingy. A sore throat can make one so very sick. You should go to see a doctor with that and get some antibiotics.
And isn't that typical? One gets sick at the very least convenient moment.

Glad you're feeling better now!

Feel better soon, Meari! That's one of those laws: As soon as you make arrangements to do something fun you become ill (in my case replace "become ill" with "get admitted to the hospital). It never fails!

Take care and get well!

Hugs,
Beth

What rotten timing on getting sick. It always seems to happen that way. Hopefully you're feeling a bit better today. Loved your earlier posting of the various rules, funny how they really all do seem to hold true, LOL. Glad things still seem to be going well with the new guy, even after the ummm "interesting" meeting with your sister and BIL. Hopefully the upcoming family gathering you're going to goes better.

OMG!!!! You haven't been sick in so long! What a complete bummer. Just have the bf come over and wipe your brow and rub your back.
I hope you feel well enough to get back at it ASAP!!! (whatever "it" is) LOL
