I Slept A Lot Today

Only one day left to the work week. Today was the first time in my new job that I called in sick. I don’t like to do that. It’s been a very long week. A scratchy throat and a stuffed-up head. Yesterday I used a lot of cough drops at work. Plus I was just so cold. I did rest a lot today and that’s not like me at all.

I hope you feel better soon. When were sick our bodies definitely need more rest than usual.

@Jessicalynnt I ended up going to a urgent care center today. It's a sinus infection.

@Jessicalynnt Yes I started taking it last night. It should be in my system by tonight.

Rest is essential to fighting whatever is going around. Good that you rested and hopefully feeling better. In your last response to one of my posts you said you were wearing your bathrobe to keep warm. My guess is that you still aren't 100%. Maybe by tomorrow you'll be a bit better.

@ElusiveButterfly It's a sinus infection, the meds are finally starting to kick in! But I'm having chills today.

@ElusiveButterfly I had those one night last week! The medicine seems to be making me a little tired.

I hope you are able to shake whatever it is you've come down with. With these roller coaster temperatures we've been having, I think I'm starting to come down with something. A lot of my students have been complaining of sore throats and headaches.

@DWDavis Don't wait like I did! Mine turned out to be a sinus infection and I needed a prescription.

I never liked to call in sick either. Sometimes I was told to go home due to being so sick. Glad you got some rest and are feeling a bit better now.

@Corbin5 My bosses are great. They understand when someone doesn't feel well.

Well then at least you made good use of your time off by getting some extra, much needed rest. I spent extra time today sleeping too, but partially that was because I was bored and cold. Not that I have a cold but I was trying to warm up. Plus, last night it seemed as if I had to get up every half hour after sleeping the first two or three and use the facilities. I let myself sleep in a little more than usual to make up for that.
