Icky Sicky

Ugh. I am so stinkin' sick. Still! On Wednesday night I started coughing but I felt totally fine. I even worked out that day. Felt great. Woke up Thursday in complete misery! Coughing. No voice or a frog voice, depending on the moment. Body aches and fever. Blah! Then that evening, the added bonus of a tummy virus. I didn't think it could get worse. But it did. And quickly. All of a sudden I was shivvering. Teeth chattering and body just unable to warm up. It took me ten minutes to call my dad from under my covers in the fetal position. I was shaking so much I could barely turn to grab my phone. So he comes to my rescue bust isn't exactly sure how to help. TWO HOURS later, with the help of the heating blanket turned on hugh, heating pad turned on high, three extra quilts and my puppy sitting on my feet, I settled down. It was incredibly scary and nothing I had ever before experienced. I was shaking so hard that it looked like convulsions. My teeth were so loud that I kept gnawing on the corner of a blanket to stop the noise. Awful experience. Daddy stayed right by my side thanks to my begging that he not leave me alone. Not that he would. I was just so terrified that I had no control over my own body for so long.

Thankfully, that ended but the coughing and other yuck are still here. Boo! If I am not improving tomorrow, I promise to go to the doctor. I just really thought it would pass by now. The coughing needs to come to an end soon for my sanity if nothing else.

Oh the rolly ball thing in my Blackberry died again last night so my World's Best Father took it to be fixed today so that I can once again access the much needed Facebook and blogs from bed.

So my house is a pig pen, I'm a hot mess, Christmas shopping still needs to be done, half my presents have yet to arrive, and all of the wrapping still needs to be done. Oh and I'm sure there is some sort of baking that will now never happen. Bad timing is an understatement.

But the good news is that I've seen every episode of MTV Cribs today. Tommy Lees informed me that if you have money, a mirror over your bed is a must. Good to know. Question...does a mirror over the bed clash with a stripper pole at the end of the bed and the monogrammed linens on the bed? Something we should all think about!

Oh this was written via Blackberry so pls ignore spelling errors.

What the heck? The flu....what? Free medical advice.....best not to try to get too warm during a fever. Take 3 (three) Motrin next time you get fever and chills so badly. You have to get the fever down to stop the chills. Trying to warm up just traps the fever inside of you. Do not take a luke warm bath either. Warm (not hot) is better. It opens up the pores and lets the fever/heat escape into the water. I'm in the same boat....I have a severe cough and stomach thing. I was thinking to myself..."this couldn't get any worse"...it did. I got my monthly nightmare. So how's that? The baking that should have happened didn't and I don't care. The shopping finally got done due to the world's best husband. Good thing you have such a great and helpful dad.

The same thing happened to me in college. It lasted for 3 days and I would just get so chilled I couldn't get warm. I tried drinking hot water and eventually the only thing that worked was taking a hot bath.

I'm so glad you feel better! Hope you get everything done in time for christmas!
