I was so exhausted, not wanting to get up on time, sciatica pains every other day, coughing up and dry heaving yuck almost every morning. It was just a super off week, Ruby came and went with her rude ass so I couldn’t quite put my finger on why I had been so damn tired.
It wasn’t until Sunday (22 April) morning when I attempted to get my self up to go to the bathroom at 5am. So I’m like Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF)!!! Notice I stated “attempted” my throat, was sore, head banging, ears clogged up and body just was not wanting to move. UUUUGGHHH!!!
So I went on to the bathroom. And me being me, I did what I would do if I were at home...
I broke out my Vick’s Vapor rub, some fleece lined leggings, fuzzy socks, tank top, long sleeve shirt, a wash cloth and my scarf. I put the Vick’s on my neck, then the wash cloth and then tied my scarf around my neck. I then put all those clothes on and got under my two blankets and went back to sleep.
Wake up number #2 @9am...
I get up so I can get ready to start my day, it was time to get some food and start getting ready to go swimming... yes swimming.
But oooooh was I sadly mistaken!
Come on fam!!! I can’t do this getting sick shit right now, I got shit to do! Places to go, things to see, water to relax in!
This can’t be life, I still feel the same way, except my throat don’t hurt as bad, still got this punk ass headache and clogged ears.
I should be getting ready to hop in some water and try to even out this wack ass tan I got on my face and arms to the rest of my body.
But nooooooooooooo! The sinus and allergy Gawds just had to attack me this week. So i stayed in bed to rest and sweat this foolishness out. The next two days i did the same thing wrapped up every night and got up for work Monday and Tuesday. MF WEDNESDAY rolls around I can’t, I just can NAAAWT (in my Jocelyn Hernandez voice) so I go ahead and go to sick call I had her give me more mucinex since I was out and was gonna go on to work.
She put me on straight sick quarters... What is that? I got taken off work, and basically on bed rest.
I went ahead and went in to check my emails and replied to the one I needed to and went back to my room. I was “quarantined” LOL!
to my room for two damn days. I felt good Friday when I returned to work, wasn’t at 100% but much better. I felt good enough that eased a small workout in that evening.
Dawg!!! Like, I thought I was doing what I needed to, to keep from getting sick. Vitamin C on a regular basis, getting rest, trying not to stress, etc.
So, if you’ve been following and reading since I started posting then you know....
If I’m off nothing gets done. Why? Because I am a one woman shop. So, it caused me to get backed up, but I don’t even care. I actually tried to get caught up on processing and the ducking system was down for two days. I don’t work on Sundays because I need my off day.
Moral of the story... there is none
Naw, to be honest knowing how easily I get sick I try as hard as I can intentionally to watch what I physically do, and to consciously take vitamins and extra vitamin C so this doesn’t happen and it didn’t work. I stated I am allergic to this place in a jokingly manner on social media. But to be honest, these MFs really don’t care about us they just need us to make sure we get the job done. I haven’t been counting down like most people but I let it be known that I’m ready to go. It actually has nothing to do with me being or getting sick, but it has EVERYTHING to do with me getting sick.
It’s so much more that goes with this post and it’s already long enough so just keep praying for my strength while I’m away. Strength for my health yes, but most importantly strength to keep me from blooping all the way out over here.
Until next time, my loves
