Sick ..... again - Part II

I didn't know it was possible to feel this completely and totally awful. I think I have the actual flu (not the stomach bugs that people incorrectly call flu) with the hot/cold chills, severe body aches, cough, the feeling that you got hit by a bus while at the same time having a severe hangover.The body aches are so bad I can barely get around. I made it through work yesterday and just felt progressivly worse and worse last night. I called in today and I am about 90% sure I won't make it in tomorrow. Good thing I get loads of sick time, but I still feel guilty for not going in. I guess no one else wants the flu anyway. Last week I was out with that damn cold on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday I went to see my mum. I am scheduled to be off this Friday for Good Friday as P is off. I hate missing work and rarely do so. I also missed my Dentist Consultation this morning with all three specialists and I am disappointed - I really wanted to hear the plans for my future dental work. The worst part is that I have no one to take care of me. P is in South Carolina until Thursday night.

As I said in my earlier post, I don't think I was well enough to go to A, but went anyway because I felt obligated. The crazy thing is that my mum said, "does this mean you aren't coming up for Easter"???? She expected me to drive up there again after being sick yet again which I wasn't planning on anyway. Didn't care that I was just up there this weekend. For four days. Sigh. I could barely even muster a response.

It is also really crummy when you are too sick to enjoy a sick day even a little bit.

LOST is on tonight! I most likely will be able to stay up and watch it because I will be up coughing.
