Yep, I’ve been sick. It started on Christmas Eve, of all the good days of the year. I woke up with a runny nose and a cough and just not feeling great. Finally, after I’d been up for a couple of hours, I took my temperature. Yep, I was running a fever.
My fever climbed the rest of the day, but it went down when I took some pills. It never climbed as high again, although my fever didn’t truly break until Friday evening some time.
But I still had the cough. I was getting better, and I thought I was on the tail end of it, until I woke up on New Years Day. The cough was worse than ever.
Not that I let that stop me from playing ultimate Frisbee for three and a half hours yesterday. It was 75 degrees – how could I resist?
But I paid for it last night. I woke up at 3:30 coughing and had a really hard time going back to sleep. So I went to the doctor today before work. The doctor couldn’t hear anything, but she did give me an inhaler. Hopefully that will open up my airways so I can knock out this cough and get back to normal.
