Spent Mother's Day in bed

May 13, 2019 - 1 comments

I had a cold for 6 days since Wed.  On Sat, I took my mom to Napa to attend a cooking class for Mother's Day celebration, then to Los Altos Hills for my son's classmate's birthday party, then drove back to Davis.  I drove 250 miles that day.  After I got home, I crashed to bed and couldn't get up for the next 20 hours.  I spent my entire Mother's Day in bed, in pain, shivering, crying...... I struggled to get up at 7pm and drove for 2.5 hours to take my son to bay area.  

Took temp - 102.6! How did I drive with this temperature? Took Tylenol... Actually I have been taking Tylenol round the clock since Friday night. Overall been feeling a downward spiral.  It's 12am.  I'm feeling sick to my stomach because my mom insisted that I should eat something before I drove or I could pass out on the road.  Whatever she fed me, now I just wish I could throw up soon so I can get some relief.  

Don't ever force yourself to eat when you are running a high fever.  You recover faster with fasting from my experience.

On a separate note, I just realized that it's been barely a month since my last fever.  I know this cannot be normal. I know I should speak to my doctor.  I'm so  scared... I keep waiting to hope that pattern would stop, but I'm not getting any better at all. :(
