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.

Oh sweetie, I'm sorry you've had just a terrible weekend! I hope this is only a virus and it's over soon. Take care of yourself and feel better soon.

Thank you. I haven't had a fever since Sunday, which is great, but I still feel weak and tired a lot. IDK, but I spent three days on the couch and basically with the arthritis I have, for every day you spend on the couch, you need three or four days to get back to your normal level, so Iam hoping that is the reason why I am still drgaging ass. Thank you for the love, babe!

Thank you. The fever has subsided but I am still excessively tired. I think I just need to shake out the cobwebs. <3

Oh, honey! I hope you are better BEFORE Tuesday, and that this is just a temporary thing. *hugs*

Thanks, babe. Well no fever since Sunday, so that's something. Went to therapy Monday but skipped exercises. Went to therapy again Wednesday and did exercises, albeit in slow motion. I think it's probably gonna take another week to get my stamina back up after spending three solid days on the couch like I did though. <3

I'm glad to hear that you're better!

Sorry to hear you've been ill all weekend. Hope you get better soon.

Thank you, darling. The virus seems to have passed, now it's just a matter of getting back to my normal level. Spending several days on the couch with the flu is not a good thing for my arthritis, so it will take a few more days to get moving again, I think. <3

Wow, hun. I hope you are feeling better now.

Thank you, babe. The fever is gone and the flare up is over, which is great. I still feel so tired though. I can't wait to shake the last of this off! <3

Seriously, maybe I do need to be bundled up! Idk what is going on with my body lately, damn. Thanks for the love, babe. <3

Oh man, I hope you are feeling better soon! My lady-partner has a flare up this week of whatever undiagnosed intestinal problem she has. She has Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which is just a catch-all term for her terrible stomach problems. She hasn't been able to eat anything but crackers since Wednesday because of nausea, poor thing. I've been trying to keep giving her fluids and stuff. Let's hope this isn't the new normal for both of us!

The virus seems to have passed, thanks, babe. Unfortunately I spent three whole days on the couch, so it's going to take me awhile longer to get my stamina back. There is a voice in my head that keeps suggesting I might have mono, but when I had it as a teen I couldn't even open my eyes for the first week. I remember my little brother had to wake me up when he got home from school and help me eat for like the first three days because I couldn't wake up enough to eat. At least I'm not that bad off!

I didn't know The GF had IBS. That's got to be the worst, especially when you are hungry and just can't eat. My mom and older brother have Crohn's and they are so restricted on what they can eat and when. Hope she is feeling better now - send a supportive back pat from me!
