Being Sick

I am hanging out at home in my white flannel pjs (the winter ones with cool mittens and hats on them, not to be confused with my turquoise flannel pjs or my black watch plaid flannel pjs or my white flannel pj pants with rosebuds that i made) b/c i am sick. i went to work yesterday (monday) and did a program for matula elementary (aka matula oblongata). 60 kids for 4 hrs, rush them thru the waders/seining/swamp walk etc. and afterward i was exhausted, but thats normal. so i went home early (a whole hour early) and i realized i was thirsty cuz i had forgotten to bring my water bottle to the beach. so i drank almost a liter of water in a minute. then i felt naseous, and i figured it was just the quickness of water drinking.

so i lay down on my bed and felt more naseous and chilled. thats when i put on my flannel pjs (yes at about 3:30 monday afternoon). then at about 5 i was looking for some chicken noodle soup makings and had to rush to the toilet to vomit. that was not a pleasant experience. i hate throwing up, and i have been doing it more often of late. one time after i went to the indian restaurant with tania and mitzi on the way back to work i had to make mitzi pull over and tania jump out really quick so i could puke on the side of the road. that was both worse and better than this time, cuz there was more volume but it was over quicker.

leah suggested that maybe i had food poisioning. well, i didnt go to work today cuz i had a splitting headache, and i had already switched up with mitzi so she would take my program.

i am feeling better in the tummy but worse in the head. ugh.

so now i will run to the grocery store to buy food items and items to make into gift jars that i said i would donate to the wild auction at work this weekend. what was i thinking? guh.

and im not hungry, but i know i should eat.

Augh! Hope you feel better soon. Rest, a netti and that tonic won't do well for fluish stuff. Covering faces while sending love and hugs.

Could you give us a more detailed account of this illness? I don't think we can give a correct diagnosis based on this information. What was your temperature at regular intervals during the day, did this come on suddenly or over time, have you been exposed to a person or persons that may have given you this virus, what will you do differently in the future given this current situation, what is your stand on the presidential race, what do you think about current domestic health care system in America, what would you do if you were a bird and could fly anywhere you wanted, why did the color blue rank so lowly on your early favorite color scale and why has it risen in popularity more recently?

I think answers to these might help us all out.

Puke is gross. I have only puked about five or six times in my entire life and can tell you about each one. Use the word "vomit" with official officials. It will gross them out.
