A rather nasty stomach bug has reared its nasty head around this area, and I caught it yesterday. I exercised yesterday, then worked from home a bit to go to the dentist for a cleaning, then went to work. That was a bad idea. Already wiped out from my workout, I was pretty useless at work and felt terrible. Then it got really bad. You know that dizziness you get before you puke? I got it at work. Stumbled into the bathroom... barely. I ran into 3 walls on the way. No puking, but I almost passed out in the bathroom. After about 45 minutes in the bathroom, I walk back to my desk, stop by the bosses cube to simply say "I'm going home", and by how I looked (which I found out later... ghost white with red blotches on my face... plus my hair and face were soaked cause I splashed water on it while in the bathroom). I stumbled out of work and drove home. I called my wife and told her to call me and check on me on my way home. She was busy and forgot, but I made it home... barely. I was hallucinating on my way home. For example, on a back road close to my house, there were shadows of trees on the road. Between two suck shadows, I came to a screeching stop. It looked like a giant hole in the road. Thank god this was in the middle of the afternoon and no one else was on the road.
When I got home, I stumbled into the bedroom, and passed out on my bed. Wife apparently got me out of my work clothes.. then things got bad.
I won't go into details... I only threw up once in the evening, but I was in the bathroom all day and night. It wasn't just feeling nauseous, but I had so many severe cramps and such in my stomach and gut. I got the worst of the stomach bug, as I find out from the news this morning.
You know how people get the bug so bad they can't keep water down? Similar thing. By the night, I was cleaned out. So I started sipping water... 5 minutes later, I'd actually crap out water. It was freaking me out pretty bad.
Today I'm a bit better, but still definitely sick. I slept so much during the day, I was up wide awake a lot last night... so I ended up watching cartoon network. Dude, those animes are just messed up! The stories are just completely whack!
So now I get a call from my boss. I've procrastinated doing my self evaluation that its due today. So I have to finish up two parts of it and send it in by 5. I'm a bit dizzy sitting up, but I'll throw something together. Probably won't be back into work until friday. Problem with getting a stomach bug with IBS, is that my intestines recover much slower than your average person, so I'm gonna feel like crap for the week. Probably won't work out again until sunday, now... just when I was getting used to my cardio, too....
Hope everyone else is having a better day....
