Feeling Swirly...

I woke up yesterday morning feeling a little swirly. I told myself it was just from something I ate the night before or anxiety or I just needed to get a bite for breakfast.

By lunch, I couldn't even look at my salad and clementine without thinking about how gross they sounded. I ate a few bites and threw the rest away.

Half an hour after lunch, I was feeling dizzy when I stood up and my stomach was in knots. I asked my boss if she could cover for me for the rest of the day. I went home.

When I got home, I curled up in front of the fireplace, wearing my pajama pants, a t-shirt, a long sleeved t-shirt, and a sweatshirt. I tucked a down comforter around me for insulation. I had goosebumps and my temperature was 101 degrees.

It was a looooong night, to say the least.
Today, I'm feeling a little bit better. Still have a bit of a headache and feel slighty swirly but my fever has dropped to just above average and I haven't puked since about 2 a.m.

I think I'm going to survive...

You could be pregnant, but I don't think that causes a fever. ;)

Paula, Blogarita. Bite your tongues. Now. Do it.

I agree with the possibility, some women do have flu symptoms (fever & all) right before they find out they are pregnant.....LOL! ;o) Anyway, I am glad to hear that you are feeling better today. I am sure it's just a little bab..., I mean bug! :o) (We just like giving you a hard time.)

Aw, gee. Lookit all the people beat me to preggers comments.

I've always tried to look at the bright side of stomach flu - at least 10 pounds of weight loss.

Hope you are feeling better...

When I was preggers with Pan I thought I had the flu for two weeks (even had a fever)...went to the doctor - and surprise!

I am sure it's just the flue - but just as an FYI - one can get preggers if on the pill and one takes an antibiotic. Just so you know.

Paula thought she had the flu also. Odd how things taste funny-- I never understood that.

Then again, maybe it's just the flu...

(If it were up to me, I'd wish for another friend for Ella, but I'm just sayin.)

Hope you feel better soon!

I found the picture of a clementine on Hormel.com to be odd. Don't they just do meat and chili? :)

I would assume you have a twenty four or forty eight hour bug....nothing else.

One time I had the stomach flu but thought I might be pregnant...the stress of not knowing, made me sick for longer than I would have been normally. I finally stopped feeling nauseous when the doctor told me that from my symptoms, he didn't think I was pregnant. So don't worry about pregnancy...it is just a stomach bug....

Hope you're feeling much better, and if not, I hope Dane Cook can cheer you up:)
