I Fought...I Lost

They have been all around me for a while.

They manage to sneak up on me here and there but I'm usually ready for a fight.

They have taken down the best of them, friends, family and co-workers.

Yesterday they caught me off guard...I fought....but lost.

Who are they you may ask. What did I ever do to them?

I'll tell you who they are but you must beware and watch your back.

They are..............................................................................................................................

Germs! Those sneaky little bastards have caught me off guard.

I sanitize, I wash my hands, I try to keep myself and home as germ-free as possible.

Not good enough I guess. It hit me last night. A stomach pain that resembled the pain I had 5 short years ago. Contractions.

If I didn't know any better I would have guessed I was about to give birth due to the amount of pain..

I tried to sleep last night...didn't quite work out. I even tried to get up and work today.

I made it into work but could barely walk. The stomach pain had grown into body aches and congestion.

What did I do to deserve this? Was it the lack of sleep I got this weekend due to early morning hours at Wal-Mart?

Regardless of the reason why, it got me. I lost the battle and had to leave work before passing out right at my desk.

Hubby came to pick me up. He knows when to step up to the plate. MIL came over and brought me soup. She's so sweet.

I haven't ate it. I actually have not had food in me since 6pm last night. I doubt I would be able to keep it down anyway.

Now I'm off to sleep again. Seems like it's the only thing I can do to keep me from wanted to rip off my stomach with my own two hands.

Make it go away........


  1. I lost too!! I got me yesterday. I got the 103.8 fever around noon and then the body aches and headache. It lasted for 6 hours. Then the fever went away but it didn't take the body aches or headache with it. The fever came back at 1:00 am and lasted for another 3 hours. I woke up this morning with a headache and my tummy still sore but better. Hopefully yours will only last hours like mine!!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog - just had to come visit yours - so sorry you aren't feeling well! I have two sick boys here at the moment and hope it ends there. Wishing you health.

  3. It seems everyone is sick these days! Sorry it caught you! GET WELL SOON :)

  4. I hope you feel better soon! That stinks! Get your rest.

  5. Thanks for stopping my blog...I really appreciate your prayers for my family and me. Hope you feel better soon!

  6. YIKES, I'll make sure we stay away from you for ahile aye.
    Hope you are feeling better today.
    It was nice to hear from you

  7. I hope that you feel better soon. I haven't got it yet but I know it's out there....waiting for me....

    BTW, about your comment regarding me trying to stare my sleeping husband into not snoring: No, he didn't feel it. However, he would've felt it had I smacked him one...hehehehe!

  8. Hope you feel better.. I just had it this past weekend!!
    But you know that you have to allow exposure to a certain amount of germs so that your body learns how to fight them off... If you use too much (everything) anti-bacterial, then your body can't build immunities to them... ok, ok-- yes, you can call me Dr. Melissa!! :)


Those laughing with me...or at me.
