I just want to have a whine fest for a minute. SO has been sick for about two days, and lo and behind, the day he feels better is the day it hits me full force. Chills, fever, head ache, body aches, and lots of coughing. It couldn’t wait 48 hours for me to be done with finals and it for Christmas, nooooo. The sickness gods are cruel. I hate having to go out sick, but tomorrow is the last day of finals- either I go tomorrow or fail two classes.
I guess the good news is SO is off to take care of me; he went and bought me some orange juice and soup and liquid Tylenol cold medicine (the stuff is awful though. It’s like drinking a strong liquid cough drop and the taste just sticks with you. It does work though). And I have one exam early in the morning, then I get to come home for 8+ hours before I have to go back so at least I won’t be running ragged all day.
Any other sick bees out there? Let’s be miserable together.

Feel better soon! I am having some finals stress, but not due to illness! We are expecting a decent snow storm on top of what we already got yesterday that is supposed to start in the middle of the night. I have to drive an hour as it is to get there on time, and I just KNOW that my university won’t cancel a day of finals!

@ForeverBirds: I had my finals today. Had a fever of 102.2 when I went to bed and woke up today with a fever of 101.8
I’ve been sick for days. I’m glad it is over and I can rest now.

I really appreciate all the well-wishes. I haven’t gotten a lot of sleep, because I either can’t find the right temperature of SO has been snoring because he’s congested. Now I’m awake because my back hurts.
*Sigh* This is gonna be one of those days. So ready for it to be over with so I can come home and rest.

oh goodness. GO FIGURE it’s right before a final.
Take a shower and loosen up that cough with some steam, then towel off and try and lay down. Might help.

I’m done with one exam. Not even 15 minutes after I walked out, in the parking lot, my stomach contents emptied. I had just water on my stomach (I’d been feeling sick since taking medicine and drinking some orange juice though)! Now I’m worried about eating anything before my next exam. This majorly sucks.
