The Week In Review - February 10-15

Saturday, February 16, 2013

The week started off okay. On Sunday we just kind of hung out and didn't do much of anything.

Then on Monday it was BC Family Day on the 11th. Again, didn't do much of anything just sat around the house. I did some school work and the kids and hubster watched TV or played video games.

On Tuesday it was back to the grind of work for me, and school for the kids. Hubster is still working his job search.

On Wednesday I woke up with no voice. Struggled through the day at work and at one point lost it on my poor co-worker who in my opinion was carrying on like a high school brat with his "buddies" from one of our other branches. Trust me the Mom in me came out and I yelled at them, as much as I could yell, to get a move on and go get the cars. I was frustrated and so glad to see our manager.

On Thursday I woke up with no voice, sore throat, cough, and swollen eyes. The hubster looked at me and said "Should you be going in today?"...Ummmm apparently not. I called in sick and then slept all day.

Today, Friday, more of the same. I called in again today after an another 1/2 day of sleeping I felt much better. Felt guilty about calling in today so I did some school work and generally took it easy.

I really need to find an answer to why I am getting sick so often lately. I know for the past 9 months I have been working insane hours, plus going to school via internet classes. Then hubster losing his job suddenly didn't help with stress so I guess that could be it. Hope it gets better soon because if I keep getting sick and calling in I may find myself in the unemployment line with the hubster.

I am hoping that tomorrow is better and that I am well enough to at least walk the route the oldest child unit and I have been running the past month for training for a 10K run on Sunday.

    Hope you feel better soon. I'm sure the stress of the situation isn't helping. **HUGS**

    Yup still getting sick with the same thing. I do still have my tonsils but according to every doctor who has seen me, even though my throat feels raw they say it is not red or inflamed. It is weird in my opinion. I have also mentioned that our office smell like mildew/mold and I am not the only one to notice it, customers have commented on the smell too. I have a mold allergy I think there is a link but my doctor says the only way to prove that link is to take at least 6 months off from that particular job and see if things improve. Unless he is going to sign a medical order giving me 6 months off from my only source of income it is not going to happen.

    You still haven't found a reason why you keep getting the same sickness?? I remember you having this problem when I was on spark before! That's terrible! Do you still have your tonsils? Could that be apart of it? I hope it goes away soon.
