My First Sick Day

I called in sick for the first time at my new job this morning. It’s always hard to know when you should stay home and when you should just go to work. If I’m going to take a day off work, I don’t want to waste it being sick. But I think I really AM sick, so it’s probably a good idea to stay home. I spent all night shivering, vomiting, and sweating; tossing and turning all night. I took my temperature – 98. So I don’t really have a fever, but it sure feels like it. I’m still freezing cold this morning, and ALL my muscles are really sore. I can hardly stand up or walk around – and the headache – oh the headache. It’s pretty bad. I don’t feel like eating anything because I will probably just vomit it back up. So I’m going to go downstairs, curl up on the couch, and watch court TV all day. If I start feeling better, maybe I’ll try to buy some M.U.S.C.L.E Men online – that would cheer me up.
