Wow… so I’ve had the worst week of my life this past week. I started getting sick like last Thursday/Friday like the 7th or 8th and then it really hit me Saturday. I didn’t even eat for three days, I just sort of slept and coughed and threw up and had a nasty fever and diarrhea and all that fun stuff .
I’m not the type of person to throw up, I think the last time I threw yup was about15 years ago and that’s no exaggeration. So when I throw up I know there’s something really wrong, especially if it’s more than once.
I had a fever for days and I believe I was like having fever induced hallucinations because I distinctly remember talking to my cats and them talking back to me, yes we were having conversations. I don’t think my cats can talk so I think it was all in my head because of the fever…
I was freezing and yet I was sweating profusely, I mean I was sweating to the point I woke up and my clothes were soaked through like I took a shower in them. My pillow was soaked all the way through to the other side, so yeah I was a sweating a little bit apparently. It was amazing that I was freezing and shivering uncontrollably but yet I was dripping with sweat. The odd thing was that I would get goose bumps like when you’re cold, but these actually hurt, I’ve never experienced that before.
As far as sleeping, I really didn’t sleep at all from Sunday until Tuesday I believe, but a few minutes here and there it seemed to me. I would lie down and a few minutes later I would start coughing, so the cough just wouldn’t let me sleep. The odd thing was that I could only lay on my left side, when I tried my right side the coughing was 100 times worse, so for days I could only lay on my left side which that in itself hurt after a day or so.
So yeah I didn’t eat for days, then I ate soup on Tuesday which stayed but came out the other end rather quickly. Wednesday tried soup and crackers, which stayed down as well. Thursday I had the soup and crackers but I was actually hungry later and tried some scrambled eggs. So it was a good sign I was getting an appetite!!
I’m better now, for the most part, I really have no voice, and I’m still coughing, but nowhere near like I was, but I don’t have a fever and I can sleep more than a few minutes at a time. I’m still waking up in the middle of the night with a coughing fit but at least it’s not all of the time. My throat and lungs hurt from all of the coughing and nothing tastes right to me. I love my coffee in the mornings and I tried it yesterday and today and it just doesn’t taste right, then nothing does.
I have some antibiotics so that’s good.. last week has really been just a haze for me, I honestly can’t clearly remember much of it, and what I do remember I’m not sure it actually happened or not?!
I can’t recall ever being that sick, it’s not nice at all, and it wasn’t fun…..
