I can't remember the last time I felt this sick but it was probably when I was an English teacher in Asia. The kids I taught were always sick and I had no resistance to their bugs.
No matter where I am when I'm sick my first phone call is always to my mom; she's an R.N. so she gives me good advice. But she also looks after me. When I went to university I would drive the hour and a half home so I could lay on her couch and she could fuss over me. I always recovered faster when I was at home (I swear by it!). I just wish she lived a little closer right now. Wish me luck on my recovery!
