If you've been following me on Twitter, you know I've been bed ridden since Monday night. After going through about eight hours of stomach issues, I finally threw up a few times. A few hours after throwing up, I realized my throat was sore. I thought it was from throwing up, but I soon realized I was getting the same cold as NYEBoy and KristinMcD.
My fever kept bouncing between 99-102+. I was still weak and dehydrated. I was/am having a hard time getting more than an hour of sleep at a time or staying up more than an hour, too. I started antibiotics and a sinus med, but it still took until my 3rd dose got into my body before I could get out of bed for longer than a few minutes. My throat is raw and very sore. My voice cracks at every other word. I've stayed in bed all day today, hoping by tomorrow I'll have enough energy to sit in my office again.
On top of feeling like shit, I've had an abnormal amount of sales to pack and ship. I'm not complaining about the money, but fuck it's tough running an online business when you're sick and you're your own boss. Luckily, I got all the packages shipped on time and caught up on the emails today. NYEBoy has also finished about 90% of my "big idea" while I was sick. He's been really anxious for me to take care of my side of things, but again, it's hard to do when you're sick. I was able to work on that today, though. I just need to make a final decision before we can move forward. I can't wait to share the news with y'all!
I'm feeling a lot better today, thankfully. My fever finally broke this morning. I'm not nearly as weak or dehydrated as I was. If I can get this raw throat of mine to chill out and get better, I would be a million bucks! I plan on spending the rest of the night in bed with my laptop catching up on ICLW.
