Not at work [Jun. 10th, 2009|10:41 am]
Lanette
[Current Mood |draineddrained]

I tried working at home, but just the agony of my belly which is acting awful, the sweating and dizzy feeling and the headache just made me realize I may have the flu or something. Craig is feeling awful too. The symptoms don't seem like something one goes to the doctor for. I'll try taking my temp in a bit after a nap. Yep, that's right, I feel too tired to walk up the stairs despite sleeping for a full 11 hours. When I have a day off work I at least want to feel well enough to have SOME fun and watch bad TV shows.

Also, it's almost 3 months since Midnight passed away. Craig and I still miss him every day. I'm at home sick and he'd always be right by my head sleeping, purring, and keeping me company whenever I was home for any reason. I mean, he got me through the worst medical times I've known. I know Ashley is here, but she's not social. She never wants to be around people more than 30 minutes at a time, a total of 1 hour a day max. I just miss my friendly social kitty buddy. I know that when Midnight was alive I appreciated him and I spoiled him and I adored him, but now that he is gone I miss all of it so much.

He was a very special kitty and he was quite loved.

Please call your doctor today. Your personal diagnosis of what is the kind of thing to call your doctor about is in question as you will willingly drag yourself to all normal activities on a high pain day--your tolerance is very high. What might be that out-of-the-norm for you might be life threatening, but you don't see it that way as you've experienced a lot worse. Abdominal pain + lots of sleeping can be a appendicitis, severe kidney or urinary tract infection, kidney stones, or something else--any of those things can kill you. And even if its something simple like a cold, you could be getting relief NOW instead of waiting for tomorrow.

Please, please, go to the Urgent care or your doctor today. Please?

This!!

Also, if its the flu you can get tamiflu which will shorten the intensity/length of the illness.

GO! GO Go go go go go goooooooo!!!!!!!

I'll work on getting a ride and getting dressed. I also will print out this since I'm so tired that I'm not feeling super coherent.

*hugs* If I were there I'd come take you. But I don't think you can wait that long. :)

And, if you need a ride and no one is available to get you, I can either take some time off work or I can ask my husband to help you get there. Yes, it's a drive, but lady, you're important to me.

That's super sweet, but my Mom does get off of school in 3ish hours, so what I'll do is see if I feel some better or have a fever or not and I'll call her and decide what to do.

I wish it were easy for me to put into words more specifics than "wow I feel crappy".

I too would take off work to help. I couldn't that one day for your pharmacy pick-up because it was right at month-end, but you know I would have had it been a true "emergency" condition. I sure wish I had my car here at work, and that I lived closer to you.

I'm not going to go today because I have no fever and the rest is making me feel better, but what I'll do is call tomorrow morning and try to see the good Dr. K this week if still not much better in the morning. At least with Dr. K I don't have to explain my whole confusing history and medications as that takes so much time and gets so many doctors off track at this point.

That seems fair. Do keep in mind your insanely high tolerance, though. Ask yourself if you'd make ME go.

If Craig didn't have the same symptoms I might worry, but it has to be viral if Craig and I have the same thing going on and there isn't much they can do for viral issues.

Incorrect. It could also be bacterial/environmental or just plain coincidence. Don't play doctor! Well not without me at least. :)
