Bleh

Sick. So very, very sick. I hate being sick.

Don't the powers that be realize I don't have time for such silly nonsense?

It hit me yesterday quite suddenly, the aches, the chills. I've been couch-ridden for two days now. The Motrin barely holding at bay the migraine waging war inside my head.

I've sat curled up in a ball on the couch, wrapped up in a blanket, teeth chattering with cold. And whenever I lay down, I break out into an awful sweat. My body is aching something fierce as I sit here at my computer typing.

I've barely eaten anything because I get nauseous when I do. Although I could really use a chocolate bar right about now. Hey, at least I'll look all skinny for the Causal Bloggers Conference on Thursday! Because I'll be better by then. I will!

In the meantime, could you please direct me to the nearest complaint box? I need to leave a note. Someone needs to be reprimanded for making my husband miss work to take care of the kids.

And now I'm going to go curl back up on the couch and suck on a otter pop.

In the meantime, weep for me and my untouched to do list.

28 super cool people speak:

Oh, no! Hope you feel better very soon.

Kami said...

Uh-oh. I was sick last week but I seemed to be getting sick again too. Hope you feel better soon!

Royalbird said...

Oh, I hope you get to feeling better by Thursday! Looking forward to hopefully meeting you in person!

One Cluttered Brain said...

oh NO!!! i really hope you feel better by thursday! It'd be great to see you.

I like orange flavored otter pops the best!!!

And the juice from an otter pop--DELICIOUS.

Hope you conquer this flu soon!

YUCK! sending healing vibes your way...

Serene,
I am so sorry that you feel bad! Here are a couple of suggestions that actually work. First, excedrine for your migrain! Yes it does work. Take two and go to bed in a dark room. Cold compress on the BACK of your neck. Just under the hairline and third, peppermint oil on your stomach. It helps to settle it better than most things because you don't have to take anything internally. I really hope you get well soon. I wish I were going to the conference so that I could meet you!

Sue said...

So sorry to hear that you are sick, too. (I just left the blog of another friend whose symptoms sound very much like yours.) There must be something really nasty going around.

Get well soon, okay? I hope you are able to make it to the Casual Bloggers' Conference!

=)

Get feeling better soon cuz we got stuffs to do!!!!!!!!

I don't want you all skinny for the CBC. I want you chunky so I don't feel outta place!!!!!

Can someone please be chunky with me?

HUGS!
Try alternating tylenol and motrin every four hours.......but that's not medical advice or anything.

Weeping commenced on your behalf

ldsjaneite said...

That is NO fun! Prayers of healing headed your way. If it's any consolation, I felt like barfing the majority of the day too. But it's not cuz of the flu :)

gigi said...

Mother Smith said...

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Get well soon!

Kristine said...

Those are the exact symptoms I had last week when I had strep. If your throat hurts get it checked out. 24 hours of antibiotics and the fever, aches & pains, and headache went away. Praying you feel better soon.

Mr. Stupid said...

Hope you get well soon. Have fun on Thursday...:)

Saimi said...

That's so rude of the flu to attack you like that! Especially when you have places to go and things to do!!

Hope you feel better!! Have fun at CBC, I'm going to have to attend one of those some day!

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Ohhhhhh no! Poor you! That is awful to be that sick! Hope you get better in time for the CBC! I wish I was going!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Braden said...

Not good at all! I hope you feel better soon. Enjoy the otter pops!

One Cluttered Brain said...

Are you feeling better yet Serene?
I hope so....:)

Doran & Jody said...

OH MAN!!
I hope you get feeling better soon!
Honk as you drive past on you way to the conference.
I contemplated going but I got a better offer....ME...my MAN...and well, you know.

Hey! I was gonna say NO WORK, NO CHORES, Just US. We didn't even invite the grown kids to go with. I plan on spending money and laughing til I cry.

Can't wait to post my adventures.

I Wonder Wye said...
