on unpleasant things

There are lots of things that aren’t fun. Going to the dentist… not fun. Exams… not fun. Emergency gallbladder surgery… definitely not fun. My latest not fun thing: salmonella poisoning. Mmm… salmonella. Not. Ugh. Not fun fact, salmonella can make you arthritic. My knees can attest to this. Good lord, I’ve felt like an 80 year old for the last two days. Energy = 0. Fever = 102. At least, the fever broke early yesterday morning; otherwise, I’d still be shivering away under 20 layers. On Tuesday, I was mostly dead. Even on my worst days, I can manage to stir out of bed. Not so on Tuesday. I was asleep for a good 18 hours, or what resembled sleep but was mostly a feverish fog. I want this bug exorcised and gone.

Am going to try to go in to work tonight. Luckily, we’re between semesters so it really will be a graveyard shift. Hope I don’t fall asleep, as I can’t even have caffeinated drinks.
