102 fever

electricity's picture

And for once, it's not my mom. For the first time in ages, I'm sick.

Coughing, fever, headache. I worked 6 hours and 20 fucking minutes yesterday. I'm on my feet the entire time. All achey and shit. I'm calling in sick today.

Despite taking Tylenol PM I couldn't sleep. I slept in bits, actually. My mom got attacked by a cheetah in my dream. I worked at a factory. I woke up coughing. About an hour ago I had a 102.8 fever. But thanks to extra strength Tylenol [not Pm] I'm down to 99. And my window is open and the cold air is so relieving. It might rain again.

Right now it's 6:54. My mom went to our local grocery store to get Eggos and pudding so I can eat something soft. I tried soup this morning but the salt was irritating to my throat.

Maybe I'll sleep now.

Oh but first: C brought me a care package yesterday =] I was supposed to go out to her beach house but since I was sick I stayed home. So she came out with soup, popcorn, root beer, and later went to Macaroni Grill and bought herself, my mom, and me chocolate cake. It was delicious. She stayed with me til i got terribly sleepy, tucked me into bed and left. I love her.

And I got my hair cut. It's all short and I like it.

That sucks! and 102 fever is

That sucks! and 102 fever is really high, have you tried slightly warm baths? (cold baths are only used in extreme cases, since they either have ice in them to cool the person immediately, or they end up being worse). It makes me sad to know you are sick! go get well soon, rest a lot, have a lot of liquids, and enjoy having mom and C pampering you!

I used to be scared of
Letting someone in
But it gets so lonely
Being on my own
No one to talk to
And no one to hold me
I'm not always strong
Oh, I need you here
Are you listening?

It was strange, the cheetah.

It was strange, the cheetah. We weren't in any places where cheetahs even close to lived. Not even in a zoo. Actually, it was supposed to be Canada. Out in a small small town.
And suprisingly, my mom outran the cheetah... yeah

Lemon is definitely good for a sore throat. Try hot lemonade with honey too.
