First I had Influenza A....think it was in February? That put me down for a week! Now I have a raging case of bronchitis!
It kind of scared me a lil’ bit because my chest was hurting. It wasn’t a uniform pain…it reminded me more of what a woman’s heart attack might feel like.
But, I didn’t panic. I called Andrew and told him to come get me.
No fever, my EKG/x-ray/bloodwork all came back good. Just bronchitis.
I have never had bronchitis like THIS. But, they gave me a Z-pak and Prednisone. Kinda wished they gave me an inhaler, but oh well.
Sleeping is rough already, but the near-contant coughing and hacking up crap had me in tears.
Still. I went to work and gutted it out. About two hours before the end of my shift, I was exhausted. I had put my head down a couple times to catch my breath. Finally, my co-worker said I looked really flushed and she felt my head.
I had a fever. Took it when I got home. 101.7, which isn’t too bad. I figure my body is fighting…cool. Lemme load up on some water.
I vaguely remember the ride home. I puked in Wal-Mart parking lot…slept from Wal-Mart to home. Staggered up the stars…shot to the bathroom and puked more.
Then I finally laid down and started Snapping people. Think I passed out around 0030? Ish? I don’t remember. I just remember telling people I was exhausted and put my phone down.
I am blown away at how awesome my workplace is though. Most other places, I would’ve been told I’m coughing too loud and would’ve heard constant bitching. My team cares. We look out for each other the best we can.
I feel like life is slowly coming together.
