Pounding headache, upset stomach, general listlessness...these are just a few of the delightful symptoms that I've been experiencing since yesterday afternoon.
I was planning to work a little late yesterday but I kept having to leave my desk and lie down, which is never a good sign. I left the office and immediately got caught in a horrendous traffic jam that took my 10-minute commute and stretched it to almost an hour.
Once I got home, I installed myself in bed and didn't really get up again until a few minutes ago. I just had a couple of pieces of toast since it occurred to me that I didn't have any dinner. I'm trying to knock back the headache with aspirin and a can of Coke.
I have way too much going on to actually skip a day of work, so I'm going to try to suck it up and get out the door, even though I still feel craptacular (not to be confused with crepuscular, which is a really ugly word for an otherwise innocuous idea, don't you think?). Hey, a language joke - the Coke must be working!
Okay, I'm finished whining now, but you'd best move on to someone more cheerful.
