Playing Hooky

/ posted in: General

I’m skipping work today.  I also had to skip my massage appointment this morning which I am totally not happy about.

I have some weird off and on sickness thing.  The first sign was on the plane back from the Virgin Islands.  I think I might have passed out.  All I know is that I woke up suddenly and was all disoriented.  I was convinced that I was hanging upside down from my seatbelt.  I was nauseated and really hot.  I also felt like I was in a tunnel where I could only sense what was right in front of me.  I could hardly hear the plane noise (which was sort of nice).  Then I got really cold.  That cycle repeated twice and then I was fine.  The whole thing lasted about an hour.

A few days later I woke up with a headache.  The SO had gone through that a few days earlier and had progressed to the flu.  So I figured that was what was in store for me.  But it didn’t happen.  I was fine.  Then yesterday I felt sort of dizzy while I was at work.  I took my temperature because I was feeling warm (brand new thermometer out of the box, people always ask) and it was 102.  I went home a little early.

I feel fine except for a headache.  I’m still a bit out of it I guess.  My temperature is down now but that may be because of the NSAIDs I’ve taken for the headache.  I don’t have any other symptoms except not being hungry which I’m sure is a sign of near death for me!

I was planning on going to a political thing last night.  One of the neighbors was hosting a meet and greet for some Republican people running for local office.  I don’t have any interest in that but I like looking at the fancy houses around here and I’ve never been in his.  But don’t think that it didn’t cross my mind that I could serve as my own biological warfare against the local Republican party if I went!
