""fluish""
 

Okay, this is probably really dumb.

Since Thursday or so I've felt like I'm "coming down" with something...I'm a teacher so I tend to get lots of colds and throat infections, but this has yet to turn into something full blown.

I just feel yucky. Slightly achey. Slightly feverish (although the highest my temp has recorded when I've taken it is 99.5). With the exception of one or two nights, I've been sleeping fine, going to bed at a reasonable hour (my wake up isn't so reasonable, however, but a girl's got to work!), eating fine, taking my iron pills, etc. My appetite is fine, but I'm really worn down and exhausted.

Could I just be fighting something off? I know it hasn't yet been a week, but feeling this out of it for this many days isn't normal for me. I just feel weird. What is going on??

   Hi Eds,

Sounds like a virus. I don't think its worth worrying about unless you aren't feeling better after 7-10 days (or you get worse, or your fever really spikes). Getting to bed early isn't the same thing as getting enough rest. Do you have sick days you can take? I think its worth taking them and resting as much as possible. Are you taking NSAID's?

What are NSAIDs?

I do have lots of sick days but it's really hard to take one. I have 3-4 different classes to prep for depending on the day and I have to get detailed lesson plans for all of them. Plus, most of the substitute teachers at my school can't do eighth grade math so it ends up being a wasted day for most of my classes. I will end up taking one if I don't feel better soon, but I really have to plan it in advance. When I'm suddenly sick it's really tough... I might shoot to stay out Thursday, but I'm giving a test on Friday... ugh.

I've tried to nap most of the last few days, but haven't really been able to sleep, which is weird. I'm usually a fabulous napper. But I've been sleeping through the night (which is not normal for me) so I must be really tired...

Thanks for the response.

   Non Steriodal Anti Inflammatories = NSAIDs. Includes tylenol, ibuprofen, aleve etc. They do help with the muscle aches and keep your fever down.

ohhh... yes. Advil. Though I haven't really had much of a fever.

I feel worse late in the day (like right now... and i have to work tonight). But I wrote up lesson plans for tomorrrow. We're supposed to meet with the school psychologist about a student, but no day is a good day. So maybe I'll stay home and sleep.

you know, i always say its better to miss one day now, then let yourself get so run down that you get very sick, and miss 3 or 4 or 5 days later.

take care of yourself

Oh Eds, that sounds like me too, I always feel my worse later in the day!!!
And they always say that like 5,6,7 is when your fever spikes up the most, I know this mostly from having kids but it is true for adults too.
I've felt like crap since Monday and couldn't take a day off because we are short staffed right now and yes, it sucks. I'd rather miss one day then feel like crap for 10 more!!!

Hope you feel better!!

Thanks.

I did stay home last Thursday and it didn't help at all... by Monday the fluish feelings started to abate, but I'm still so tired. I think I'm just damn worn down... I've had a million things going on, and on top of that... I honestly just don't much like my students this year, so going to work isn't all that fun.
