And it's not getting better...I feel worse every morning. (and so does Joey consequently)
I would go to the doctor, but I live in Richfield.
By the time I realized it wasn't just a 24 hour bug, everyone was gone for the long weekend.
If you're thinking that this isn't a long weekend, you're right. But every weekend is long weekend at the doctors office in sevier county. Starting at 11 a.m. on Friday. (And please don't leave messages.)
Ibuprofen and Theraflu have been helping...but I think my body needs something stronger. (anyone have any ultram?)Theraflu is my moms drug of choice no matter what symptoms she is displaying. I bet she even takes it for diarrhea. I have grown to hate it. So when Joey brought me in a steaming cup of it (with double the required liquid!!) I cried just a little bit. Then when I saw on the back of the box that it comes in capsule form I laughed a little and I know now more than ever that my beautiful mother is crazy.
My mom thinks I have strep throat. Joey thinks I have swine flu. And the online symptom checker tells me I could have anything from menopause to death.
So tell me what you think...here are my symptoms:
hot and cold chills
random shooting pains
extreme thirst (and hunger...but that could be from all the sleep.)
restless legs (maybe from all the cold medication?)
Give me your best guesses and we will see who is right on Monday if I can get into the doctor. I don't think that my chances are very high what with the long weekend and all of the sickies piling up.
I had to share this one little picture. Doesn't she look like a real life Madame Alexander doll?
