I'm such a baby when I'm sick.

From what you described, I don't think you have a bladder infection. That usually comes with the need to run to the bathroom every 5 seconds and lots of pain when you do that. I had 3 in the past year and I hope you never have to go through that! They're miserable! Since I have no medical training, I can't even begin to guess at what you might have.

In answer to your question, I am a baby too, but most people don't know that. I don't want to be bothered when I'm sick, so I don't communicate with anyone. I tend to stay in bed and watch TV. I used to work through most illnessses as long as I could still function, but I've since come to realize that I should just stay home and use my sick time. That's why they give it to me. My attitude changed a bit more when I learned I had the new job (still waiting on my clearance....10 months and counting). I had about 30 days of sick time built up by then and I've gotten to the point where even a slight cold will keep me home.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

I am a total baby and if you lived nearby I would send over spike and lily - they are twin stuffed puppies - white with a little black that I got from victoria's secret because I purchased a certain amount - they are beyond cute and cuddly.

This past June I stuck it out one day - had a fever, stomach issues, so so icky (!!) and I worked till midnight. Never again.

I hope you feel much better soon and I will be on line for whining or any other purposes!

I'm sick too right now. And since we get 1 sick day a month (use it or lose it), I am HOME. I prefer to try and be strong and work thru it...but then I resent my coworkers when they are calling me asking me to do this/that for them. So once in a while I have to do that to them ;-)


I keep thinking about M, my Xso...I rarely do that...but when I was sick he was the best nurse. Thats actually how I fell in love with him. We were in a nasty accident and the top of my ear was cut off - he changed my bandage twice a day. The home nurse was rough and it hurt with her - but not with him so I fired her! If I was sick, he would make me anything in the world I wanted...drive 1 hour to the orchard to get me fresh blueberries for blueberry pancakes if thats what I desired.


I guess its times like this when I miss having someone to take care of me. C offered (my friend who blew it) but I told him I'm not that desperate, LOL.


I need to get better before the w/end tho! Lots of plans...I have my nephew visiting, thanksgiving, my best friend's bday, etc...


Go.

i like to show up at work, sneeze and cough my guts out and then be told to go home before the entire office catches it. its like: "you think a little pneumonia can stop me? no way!". its a guy thing.

This is going to sound really silly, but I think it's cramps after all.

I'm glad to hear it was something so normal. I'd normally sympathize with you, but I'm too busy being jealous of you for having escaped cramps for a whole year. The pill isn't doing that for me!

I think you have a very good reason for being a big baby!
