Last week started under bleak auspices, and then took a dive when I came down sick with some kind of flu.
My initial sentiment of "Yay I get to call in sick!" lasted a coupla hours -- then the fever shakes began.
I don't get sick often at all. I'm not used to fever shakes. I had no idea one could be so miserable, turning over in bed all night, sweating and shivering way too much to fall asleep despite utter exhaustion.
Thankfully I got better yesterday, about just in time to return to work.
But now I've got a persistent, unpleasant chemical-ish smell stuck in my sinuses and it's driving me nuts. What the hell, body?
