Whine with permission
I can handle pain. I went on to have three children…clearly I can handle pain. I don’t easily stay home from work. I just don’t. I don’t see what difference it makes to feel sick at home or sick at works. Still going to feel sick either way.
Today however I stayed home from work. I have had flu like symptoms since Christmas. Friday night I often woke up with a sore throat but since I was handling Zander and his horrible earache I didn’t have much energy left over to give myself much attention.
Yesterday I couldn’t swallow. Could hardly talk. Not because I didn’t have a voice but because it just hurt too much. I actually went to the doctor this morning (another thing I don’t easily do) and according to him I have reason to complain lol ….. so see, I can whine with permission.
I have a throat infection that has left my uvula so swollen that at times it feels as though I cannot breath at all and talking is just painful and I have blister like sores in my throat. Add to that middle ear infection in both ears and I’m set for a lot of pain….no … wait… my body wanted to put me through more and I started vomiting (no I suppose you didn’t want to know that) but do you know how much THAT hurts a throat!?
So poor Zander hasn’t had much of a birthday with a quiet, sick mother. I haven’t even had a taste of his cake! I suppose this is one way to start a diet ….
