I havent mentioned it more than maybe 50 times on this blog how much I love October. It seriously is my favorite time of year. Lucky me, and thanks to my horrible immune system, I got sick the week of Halloween. It started after Witches Night out with the girls. After we got home I started feeling really light headed and just felt funny. I lay down and thought "oh crap I'm getting sick" Sure enough I was sick the whole weekend and the rest of the week. I thought it was just going to be a little cold no biggie. It turned into a lot more. I had an on going 5 day headache and my throat got so swollen. To top it off I was congested which led to me having a hard time breathing. I decided to go to the Insta Care, even though I HATE going to the doctor. I mostly hate waiting in the waiting room and then the dreaded swab test for strep. Hell I hate that dang swab. The Dr didnt take too long which I was grateful for. He kept saying "wow your throat is so swollen, looks like an infection." He gave me a work release and the prescription for Amoxicillin. It is my new best friend. After I took one does I already noticed a difference. Thank you modern medicine. I didnt notice till I got home but my Dr was Dr Pepper which made me laugh.
Needless to say I missed our family Halloween party, the ward Halloween party and both times I was going to wear my Flo Progressive Auto Insurance costume. I was so sad I missed it all. I guess its just not Halloween without me getting sick. I feel like I get sick every year at the worst times. I am however very grateful for the place I work at. They were so understanding... all of them. They helped me cover the shifts I couldnt make it to and they all made sure things worked out so I could stay home and get better. Same with my friends I had a lot of friends ask how I was doing on a daily basis. Melissa even brought me ice cream. I have some great friends. Im crossing my fingers that this is the first AND last time I get sick this year. Im also hoping Ill be completely better by Halloween so its not completely ruined this year. I also decided that I really look horrible when Im sick, if I had to cover it up that Im sick I wouldnt be able to. Sick is not a good look for me at all.
