Back to the ER.. STRESS!!!


Just when I thought I was healthy and could resume some normal activities in my life... Working out, being out in public with friends, and sex.... I crash again

I felt cruddy yesterday an hour or so after getting to work and got worse as the day dragged on. I lost my voice and struggled the last few hours to get by. One I got home my temp was up to 102, so I took a nap after downing a glass of water and some Tylenol. Forced myself to eat dinner and really tried to stay awake to watch CSI Miami ( I love it as well as CSI, Alias, and The Shield... Only shows I watch. ) but zonked out by 8.

This morning I woke up feeling like I swallowed a weed wacker, could barely hear, and had a temp of 93.3. I decided to tough it out and head into work, but my boss told me to go to the ER and forget the rest of the day after a secretary came to my office to check on me and I was bundled up in my winder coat and hat sitting with my head down on my desk taking a break.

At the ER I hung out for 20 minutes trying to keep my eyes open onlt to be given more allergy meds and finally get a referal to be allergy tested with a specialist.... So many docs won't take patients unless you have one so I am happy to finally move on to the next step. The ER doc called my regular physician and the ER I was rushed to 2 weeks ago to get copies of records and blood tests. He told me that I am highly allergic to something in my building and don't have a virus. The constant exposure is wearing down my immune system and I am destroying my throat and nasal cavity. He recommends trying to transfer into a different building or quitting my job... Possibly starting a totally different career..... I hear him loud and clear and was thinking of that long before all of this illness hit me... I gotta find a way to make it through until the second week of June in the mean time so I get the rest of my salary and can pay off my share of the med bills, car insurance, as well as make my vehicle and cell phone payments... All I gotta worry about which is nice. I'm freaking out about grad school.... I have 2 projects due next week and because of things at work ( they are tied in to an internship and I have to work with my boss who has also been ill and not in the greatest of moods... She's been playing catch up 10x worse than me and I feel badly for her ) I am not even close to getting the 30 hrs in. If I am changing careers then I don't know if I should finish up the program ( I graduate with my masters in June of 2006 ) or if it'll help me in another field... Too much to think about at a time when I need to focus on my health.

I am very glad that I am single right now and don't have to deal with the drama of a relationship... Not saying that every relationship will cause drama, but as you've read I am bad about choosing who I get involved with... I've been talking to some great guys here on AdultFriendFinder and hope something works out when I am healthy.

Hope everyone is healthy and happy! Take care of yourselves and each other.. Without health their is no happiness... Without either life is not good.

Best Wishes and Medicated thoughts,

Mackey

Lady... what are we going to do with you? If it's not one thing it's another.

I honestly think I have met someone now that has my kind of luck... and that's scary.

I hope you snap out of it real quick. I know what it's like to be in the middle of a class and having this kind of thing happen. It totally sucks... especially when you actually give a crap about your education.

If you ever want to chat... send me an email with your handle and what IM you are on... would love to just chill out and talk...

Hang in there
