So, last Sunday evening I was struck with a stomach bug. Monday morning I had the worst headache form the dehydration, so I called in sick to work. By the end of the day Monday, I was feeling better! Tuesday morning comes, I get up, get ready for work and head out. I am about 1/2 way to work when I just KNOW I am going to puke again. So, I pull over and spend 10 min dry heaving by the side of the road. Then I send a text to my coworkers letting them know I won’t be in, and turn the car around and head home. I had to stop twice more to get sick. Wednesday I had 2 IEP meetings to run so I had to be at work. The puking stopped around 1 pm on Tuesday, so Wednesday I was just tired. Thursday we had parent teacher conferences so I was at work from 7 am until 8 pm! Friday was an in service day. This week just about did me in!! So much going on and then to have a stomach bug on top of it?!
While our in service was boring and not really a good use of our time, I did enjoy the day with my coworkers. I work with some seriously great people! We laughed, we joked, we rode 4 wheel scooter trolleys down a ramp in the building. It was enjoyable.
Monday I have to get my blood drawn for my biannual thyroid check up. I have a thyroid autoimmune disease that I have been on medication to treat for about 5 years now. So, every 6 months I get a total blood workup and meet with my doc to see if I need meds adjustments. The problem? I pass out every time they take blood. Doesn’t matter if its only 1 vial. My doctor says its my body’s reaction to pain. I used to pass out when I got shots as a kid. Its just awful because there isn’t anything I can do! So, I am not really looking forward to Monday (but I honestly don’t mind having my blood drawn! I don’t feel that its that painful. My subconscious seems to disagree though!)
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
