I do not like taking sick days from work. In fact it bothers me to do so. Being sick bothers me, it's a lack of normalcy.
Last time i really took off from work i ended up in the hospital. Something was growing in my stomach. Though, perhaps i took an afternoon off before when having a sever sinus headache, i try not to do that.
Yesterday, however, i was feeling quite tired. Given i don't get a good 6-8 hours a night, i blamed it on myself. But, when i came home for lunch, i used a thermometer and found my temperature to be 99.8f, not quite the fever, but 2.1 degrees above normal for me. Besides water, i had only have a danish for breakfast, and was otherwise not hungry. Finally, on my way home from lunch i nearly was blanking out for sheer tiredness. So, i gave in, and slept all afternoon, then again at night. ~13 hours of sleep.
I woke up this morning pretty tired, but feeling a bit better. And, my temperature was down to 98.4. I went to work, and had a danish again, figuring the sweets would entice me to eat. I had to pay for that, and once again i have taken off the afternoon.
I'm trying to figure out what this is. Mostly tiredness and loss of appetite, with my stomach not acting well if i eat.
Just had some chicken soup (a quart), and i am working on a cup of rice. Maybe that will help.
I almost want to end up in the hospital just to make it official.
