I didn't go to work today.

When the alarm went off this morning, I just couldn't get out of bed. I mean literally couldn't get up. I couldn't bring myself to do it.

I called in and said I would be late, but eventually decided to just call in altogether.

Last night sucked hard. Between Quil-induced hallucinations and frequent trips to the bathroom to cough my brains out (and almost throw up again on a couple occasions), I felt like complete ass.

I ended up not getting out of bed until like 4 this afternoon.

At which point my body reminded me that I hadn't eaten in 28 hours.

A glass of grape juice and some oatmeal later I was feeling a *bit* better, but still not fantastic. But I did crawl my way over to the salon to allow Christian to ministrate to my hair and eyebrows (both of which now look much better).

I broke down last night and brought out the big guns - antibiotics, codeine-based cough syrup, decongestants, and Nyquil.

And I feel *much* better today.

I have no doubt I'm still sick, but it's at least masking itself. Other than the loopiness that I usually get from codeine and decongestants, I'm pretty good.

This will be a bit TMI, but I'm too lazy to cut, so ya'll just gonna have to deal today.

So somewhere around 2:30 or 3 in the morning, I woke up coughing. Coughing hard. Like I coughed so hard I threw up a little bit into my mouth.

So I run into the bathroom to spit out the bit of spit-up in my mouth and rinse my mouth out.

And start puking some more. One of those "every time you think you're doing puking, you puke some more" kind of pukes. Which really sucks when the only thing on your stomach is some Nyquil. Much puking of reddish-pink bile. Mmm...

So I finally stop puking, get my mouth and face cleaned up, and head for the toilet, because I had to poop.

Sit on the toilet, and something about the diaphragmatic effort of trying to poop resulted in...wait for it...wait for it....YES! I started puking again. All over the floor and the rug in front of the toilet.

Finally stop puking again, still sitting on the toilet, still having to poop, so I try to poop again which results in yet more puking!

Rinse, relather, repeat a few times....

I finally stop puking and am able to poop. Take care of that, then get myself all cleaned up and back to bed.

*Not* a fun evening. Bah.

I feel like I've been hit with a truck.

Fever is back. Only up by 2 degrees, which is better than the 4 from last night, but still...

Well, I've decided that my current version of plague is a sinus infection.

...which has decided to have me start coughing it up this morning.

Mmm...phlegm rags...
