with something...in the form of little green germ-a-ma-bobs (like the ones you see on TV commercials)...and it isn't fun.
I imagine it's my run-in's daily with over 140 kids ranging in age from 5-10. Perhaps. That would be my "best guess". Slight sarcasm indeed.
OF COURSE ITS BECAUSE OF THAT!
The mass overload of germs I encounter in a single day are ridiculous. The fact that I can even BREATHE right now is probably a miracle. I can't even walk around the room and help the students without touching something that without-me-knowing was just coughed on, snotted on, or god-forbid, picked their nose and then ate it then used...
no anti-bacterial sanitizer can fight that.
So therefore. I come before you. Sick.
I hate that I have to be sick right now, as miserable as my body already feels-but, you deal with the cards that you're dealt--right?
It's funny though, because just yesterday I said to a co-worker..."I wonder if its possible to NOT get this so-called flu this season. I mean...is it EVEN remotely possible?"
Well, I am not normally one to believe in these things--but dang-it! I jinxed myself!
At this point, I'm pretty sure its a bad sinus infection and not the flu. I have an appointment this morning at 9:45 to figure that out. Thank God.
I was feeling terribly guilty about using a half day yesterday (I left school sick), and then a full day today-but my OB told me, "I am SO glad you stayed home. You can't consider this day a waste. When your immune system is down, especially while pregnant, you can easily pick up anything swirling around."
I felt much better about my decision to stay home, get to the doctors, pick up a prescription and rest until this thing goes away.
...I can see my maternity leave paid time getting less and less as I speak. I'm accepting donations.*
Send healthy thoughts my way.
UPDATE: I went to the doctor. It is NOT the flu. Hallelujah. It's not even an infection--my lungs are clear. It is however, a nasty cold virus that's going around. It should be getting better in a few days and does not turn into the flu. (Yes, that is a question I asked the good 'ole doc)
