Then I got sick again.
Yesterday hubby and I did Yoga Fix before church, and I already knew I wasn't feeling very well. During church service I started feeling chilled and having body aches. I missed church service last night, and after waking up this morning with another fever, I called my doc.
You guessed it. The flu.
Honestly, my visit to the doctor's office was kind of funny. Keep in mind that since I rarely get sick, I don't have a regular doctor. I have a chiropractor and a gynecologist. So I called my gyno and asked who she recommended for this, and they told me they would be happy to see me. Yay! I was excited to see a doc without all that first-time-patient stuff. (I wasn't looking forward to that, since I was feeling sooo crappy). Everyone was really nice, but when I followed the directions on the sign in the waiting room and told the receptionist that I was having flu like symptoms, they gave me a mask to wear. That's not embarrassing at all. Good thing I was too sick to care.
I hadn't had any medicine all day, so I know my fever was up. I was in full force: chills, body aches, coughing and hacking. That mask wasn't such a bad idea after all, since everyone else there was pregnant! I tried to stay off to myself.
When they called me in, the nurse took my blood pressure while asking me my symptoms. Once I started the list, she got that blood pressure cuff off and made a very quick exit. Oh, she was super nice, but it was definitely a shorter assessment than I usually have there. Especially since I've been so much in the last few months (with the surgery and all the visits around it) that we are all on a first name basis.
The rest of the visit went better, and I slept through most of it. I tested positive for flu and got my prescriptions and note for work. On my way out I kinda wanted to find that nurse and give her a "boo!", since she seemed so scared of me. ;)
I took my prescriptions to a drive through pharmacy, and waited in the parking lot while they filled them. And by "waited" I mean "reclined my seat and took a nap". It was awesome.
When I got home I took my first dose of everything and noticed the box on the table for me:
I'm trying really hard not to be bummed that I'm out of commission for a few days. Just when it shows up I can't even use it for its intended purpose. But that's ok. I will still have it when I'm back in the game. And hubby is still awesome for getting it for me :)
I think I'll probably restart the Fix on Monday. I'll keep you posted!
