*dies pathetically of PLAGUE*  
So the low point of my night was definitely passing out on my bathroom floor from being too tired and dizzy from retching to make it back to my bed.

Remember how I was all terrified to leave the house and go to work for that one measly night I was scheduled for last week because THE PLAGUE was afoot and I am now terrified of germs? Because they tend to land me back in MONO HELL for months and months. Especially stomach germs after the theme of the past year has been retraining myself to eat food like a normal human being at all without feeling sick. Anyway. I'm not taking any comfort in being right.

Um. Send sympathy. And those of you who had this, tell me how long it lasts (with, you know, your non-sucky immune systems) and any home remedies that met with success.

And (DON'T LAUGH!! Okay, you can laugh. I've turned into a hypochondriac, fuck it.) how many days do I have of not being able to keep any liquids down before I have to worry? All my first-aid books are about children, and I suspect it's different for adults.

As a potentially amusing sidebar, I have to "report this to security" where I work -- which I will do as soon as I trust myself to keep it together for the duration of a phone call (we're not going to talk about how long it's taken to write this pathetic entry, or it really *will* be TMI). My mother also explained how she's only eating cooked things and has stopped eating salads at work, like it's a third-world country.

On the upside (and yes, I had to really scrounge for it), this means that my getting progressively more mono-y and depressive and existential-crisis-y all week is not all on my head.

Anyone I owe stuff to -- rosewildeirish, perihawk, msraven292, pellucid... anyone else... it may be delayed.

Thank you!! I'm feeling a bit better now that I have received attention from the internet. :) Except for the sickness part. But, you know, emotionally better!

*hugs*

Most of the docs I've talked to say that if you haven't finished yakking after three days, go see a doctor.

Of course, the time I did have that problem, they suggested that, if I hadn't been able to keep anything in me, I probably had air in the pipes, so to speak. So first, they suggested I take Gas-X, then start on a drink diet comprised of 1/2 Gatoraide, 1/2 water, to get my electrolytes back in balance. And whaddyaknow? It worked. So I would give it a few days, then try that combo, and if you're still throwing up, go see a doctor. On standby if you have to.

*huggles* Being sick sucks. I hope you feel better, pronto. And? Don't worry about the fic. We'll work on it when the time is right, omg.

ewwwwwwgatorade. THAT is an incentive to get well superfast.

Maybe I'll get my mom to bring me back ReCharge from work. Ooooh. It's, like, health food gatorade, without all the freaky dyes and stuff. Because radioactive green is nature's warning colour :)

Thank you so much for the advice -- I feel most reassured that I am not going to die before the day is out or anything.

*squeezes gently* Hope you feel better soon. And I'm such a hypochondriac: The Dictionary Of Medicine is your friend.
Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 20th, 2005 11:02 am (UTC)
My dad is *such* a hypochondriac, and I'm always the one mocking him and hiding the family medical dictionaries whenever possible. Damn you, genes!

I totally haven't even read the first wall!fic yet. I will comment when I do, promise. I feel too sick to read porn without getting dizzy, and not in a good way. *boggles* That's just... so wrong for me ;)

*gnaws happily on straw*
jammer0307jammer0307 on January 20th, 2005 07:00 am (UTC)
Awww, hon, you didn't mention this when we talked, so I'll assume it started after that.

*many hugs and virtual Vernors/Canada Dry (pretty much the same thing)*

Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 20th, 2005 11:05 am (UTC)
Yep -- I felt sick and yucky when we talked but I thought it was just normal Little Red Feels Icky When She Eats Food stuff, and not PLAGUE.

Mmmm... ginger ale would be nice. My parents have freakystrong ginger brew stuff though that scares me on the best of days, so I'm not sure I'm ready for that!
