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!
