SO. Thursday I had the itchy rash. Woke up on Friday & the rash was back, and worse. Saturday was fine (and I hung out with some friends I hadn't seen in a while! Missed you guys...), then Sunday night the rash came back, and my joints were sore. I woke up Monday and all of my joints (toes, fingers, wrists, ankles, knees and elbows) were so sore. I could hardly move my fingers or toes, and getting out of bed hurt like hell. Taking Advil every 4 hours seems to help, but once it wears off or I wake up... it sucks. This morning it was even worse. I tried to get out of bed & I had to sit back down again because it hurt so bad. I tried to get an appointment to see my doctor today, but she was all book... so I had to head to the walk in clinic.
I think going to the walk in clinic is a form of torture, ha! You sit around with all kinds of sick people, people who love to tell everyone & anyone their whole life story (which, is fine... but the whole waiting room probably doesn't want to hear it), kids who do not understand the meaning of being quiet, and all you want to do is lay in bed in silence because you are sick. Anyway, after waiting in the walk in clinic for hours, I got sent to the lab next door to wait yet again to get some blood work done. And, no advice for what to do. I'm just going to keep taking the Advil every 4 hours and hope when I wake up tomorrow, I can move my joints.
I'm going through withdrawal from not knitting or crocheting. My fingers are too sore to do it. So, I've been laying in bed (too tired to go on the computer... this is really the first time I've been on it. So, sorry about not blogging or commenting on any posts!), reading, and playing sudoku. I am going craaaaaaazy! Haha. Thankfully I have a ton of sudoku books to play. But, it's times like these that I miss having a laptop.
Do you guys have any tips on how to not go insane while you're stuck in bed?! I can at least play around on my blackberry, so, feel free to keep my entertained by funny links or send me e-mails telling me jokes (haha). What do you do when you're home sick?
