polerin: My shadow on a wall (disposable femininity)
I woke up at 5:30 yesterday morning shaking and shivering, even though I was under a comforter and an electric blanket. My joints ached, my temples were throbbing in pain from the sinus backup, I was coughing up my right lung, and taking a bath only made it worse. Two Ibuprofen, a great deal of discomfort, and one shower with the hot water pointed straight at my face later... I was able to get back to sleep for 3 hours. This cycle continued for the rest of the day.

Woke up, tried to work, and decided I couldn't even do that. Took some more ibuprofen, and crashed for an hour, after which Lissa was instructed to try and wake me up. Which she did, and I told her to go bugger off for another half hour. She gave me a hug and was unable to wake me up for 3 hours, at which point I was shaking and so dehydrated I puked up the first glass of water she brought me because I was a dumb ass and drank it too quickly.

Lissa made me chicken noodle soup and brought me Gatorade, and only rolled her eyes a little bit about my whining. Did I mention she was recovering from her own sicks too? At least she had a voice yesterday.

My heart goes out to those who have to deal with a serious medical issue on a regular basis. I don't see how you manage.
