Upper Respiratory Virus Infection - The plan changer

Hello there! I'm not sure what today is, but I'm at work, so it must be a weekday.

Last Friday around noon, I started feeling very cold, and as if I had a fever. I stuck it out and stayed at work until 4:30. Picked up my son, who also had a fever and went home. We went straight to bed, because we both were feeling pretty awful. Well, we didn't get up very much for the last 4 days.

Saturday we both had a fever and stayed in bed most of the day, occasionally getting up to have a small bite of crackers and some water. Sunday we were not any better, and since the Easter Bunny had planned for us to be at my parents for the weekend, the silly guy didn't come and bring any eggs or baskets for our home on Sunday morning!! That silly Easter bunny! making plans ahead of time ! But my sisters came to the rescue and brought all the stuff the Easter bunny had dropped off at their house to our place. That made my little bunny all happy and he felt better for that day.

By Monday we were back to being in bed all day, and barely been able to move. So I called the doctors and scheduled us both appointments. The pediatrician gave me a look and said "How long has he had a fever?" and when I said 3 days, I'm sure I saw her rolling her eyes. Maybe she didn't, I was feeling pretty awful at the time. Then she said it was an upper respiratory virus infection, and that it would last 1-2 weeks. Lots of fluids, and rest. I was a little mad, but I just wanted to get out of there and go back to laying down.

My doctor said the same thing to me.

I know that the doctor said that I should start to feel better soon, but I don't remember the last time I was this sick. I am still feeling pretty awful, and have not been able to eat for 3 days. My stomach feels empty, but whenever I have more than a small bite of something, my stomach starts to turn.

Right now, I wish I was in bed sleeping. I cannot even imagine thinking about eating, or walking. I have a feeling that this will set me back from training. But I'm at work and will try to stick it out as long as I can.

  1. Oh I hope you feel better. I've been battling something since last week but I'm hoping it's just allergies.

  3. Yuck :( I had bronchitis last year and it was a struggle to just get around in the house. I remember being winded after just walking upstairs to the bedroom. I hope you don't have to deal with it too long and you get better soon.
