Well, I'm down for the count. The sickness fairy has visited me. Hell, the sickness fairy beat me senseless.
I only got 3 hours of sleep last night. I thought it was odd when I woke up sweating, but didn't even consider the fact that I might have finally gotten the fever that everyone else has been through. It wasn't until the sinuses started throbbing and the head started aching that I realized it was my turn.
Luckily, a mix of the netipot, sudafed (the original meth-making stuff that's behind the counter now, not the crappy useless version that's available on the shelves), homeopathic remedies and rest has helped quite a bit. I'm not in pain anymore, but I'm absolutely exhausted.
Here's hoping I can get to bed sooner rather than later and that this passes quickly. If the kids are any indication, though, these germs are in it for the long haul. Ugh!
