Why Is It Always The Bathroom?

First, Happy (belated) Birthday to shirebound! I wrote you a little something and I hopefully will get it up later this week. I hope you had a great weekend, darling!

My weekend, not so great. I have the flu or a virus or something. Got into bed Thursday and just felt wiped out. Skipped internet time and just watched Netflix all night. Woke up on Friday and felt drugged, couldn't wake up properly. Kept falling back to sleep, waking up, falling back to sleep. Finally forced myself to get up, thought I just needed to shake it off, get going. Did the usual morning stuff, greeting the cats, checking the messages, etc. Thought everything was good and then went to the bathroom. Why is it always the accursed bathroom? Suddenly thought, 'Huh, don't feel lightheaded but think I might faint' and then immediately got the cold flush that precedes me fainting. So decided to finish up in the bathroom and go back to bed for a bit. Then like 5 seconds later thought, 'Nope, not gonna finish up in the bathroom, just going to bed right now.' Had to lay there shaking, trying not to throw up or pass out. The cats kept coming to stare at me, like really creepily. I should have known I was really sick because the cats always know first. Called my mom to come over and stay with me and then called my sister who had no meetings so came home early. I went back to sleep and still thought like, 'Oh I'll wake up and feel better after more sleep.' Woke up an hour and half later running a fever and in a full blown flare up. Was pretty messed up all day, had some close-to-fainting moments. Woke up Saturday, was supposed to have lunch with C, so got my clothes out, went into the bathroom and came right back out and was like, 'I'm going back to bed'. Oh man, it has been a sucky weekend. Finally stopped running a fever but am still weak and tired and food is not sitting well with me. I hate this kind of virus because I always wonder, 'Is this a virus or is this a new symptom of my diseases or is this a new disease? Is this temporary and if so, for how long? Or this my new normal?' Like the not knowing sucks so hard because if I just knew like, 'Oh, you'll feel better by Tuesday' then I would have more patience with my body.

Okay, that was a rant and vent. Tomorrow's a new day and hopefully a better one.
