Cold vs. Flu

I woke up yesterday feeling like crud. My throat felt like there was golf ball in it and I just felt awful. This wasn't a huge surprise since my lymph nodes have been sore off and and since before my last trip. It was just a little surprising how quickly it came on. I still don't know the difference between a cold and the flu. Either way you put it...I'm sick. I miss the days when being sick meant lying around on the couch in my pajamas eating popsicles, missing school and getting a new toy. Instead, today I spent an hour in the morning trying to peel myself out of bed to shower and get to work.

Seriously...There's no such thing as a sick day at my work. If I call in sick, they have to call in someone on their day off to work for me. So everyone works sick. Sucks during flu season because the whole hospital gets sick at once. I remember the good old days too, when mom put the tiny black and white TV in my bedroom, brought me 7up, chicken noodle soup, and a bucket to puke in. I hope you feel better soon!

I'm glad I at least have the flexibility to adjust my hours some. I don't need to be here at a particular time in the morning.
