Sick As a Dog

Oh man, I’ve never really been sick before. Just head colds, never chicken pox, flu, anything like that. I can’t even remember the last time I was sick (outside my mind!) and can’t remember ever having a fever. I woke up at 4am this morning on fire. I was so hot, I threw up and did it again and again when the fever peaked, about every 10 minutes. I got violent shivers when the sweat got cold. I went on like that, with some added thrashing for 4-5 hours until I finally couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore. I can’t take fever reducers with Viibryd, (also, don’t take Nyquil either!) so I was stuck riding it out. I truly thought I was dying. Thankfully, The Sweetness always takes care of me with my panic episodes and knows how to talk be down, so I avoided a panic attack in the midst of this. Or, maybe I had it and was already thrashing so much that I didn’t notice. Whatever the case, I’m calling it successful. I didn’t have to take my emergency medication. I may consider getting flu shots in the future. If this is the flu, it sucks hard. I’m terrified of needles, but I’d rather do that than ride out another fever.
