Can't sleep

So I have been sick for a week or so. I am a horrible patient. You would think I would be better considering I am a nurse, but no, I am a miserable complainer when it comes to being sick. Anyway, the unfortunate part is that I slept all day. So now I am awake all night. Hooray. And, I have been wanting to go to the gym all week and haven't been able to go because I have been feeling so sick. I hate that. I miss the gym (I never thought I would say that).

My illness has two fronts: neurological and intestinal. We will not discuss the intestinal side of things, as I am sure you really don't want to know. Neurologically speaking, I usually only rarely have headaches, and when I have them it is usually a migraine. Sadly, I have been having headaches much more frequently. I do not want to know if I have something seriously wrong (people keep suggesting brain tumor as the possible diagnosis, thank you). So, I have been trying to stay well hydrated, and ignore the fact that my body is currently fighting against itself. This is what I get for working with sick kids all the time. I guess you could say I signed up for this, so I shouldn't complain.

It is 4:11am, and for the first time all day I feel okay. Not great, not even good, but okay. I will take that.

I need to be better before Tuesday when I have to go back to work, because I hate being sick at work.

I have a really good attitude right now, can you tell?

So sorry. But I'm glad you're feeling okay now. That's freaky about the headaches. :-/ I hope it's not a brain tumor. Stress?

My diagnosis: The dingo ate your brain. Sorry, I know that doesn't have the best prognosis.

Why does my morbid sense of curiosity want to know about the intestinal side of things?
