I'm pretty good about not getting sick. Usually, I might catch a cold about once a winter and since we've started taking regular vitamins it's been even less then that. If I start to feel bad, I'll start taking Zinc tablets and that usually knocks it out.

About 2 weeks ago I started feeling bad. I was really tired and had a pain in my lower abdomen. I thought it was just lack of sleep, but finally a few thursdays ago I gave in and called in sick. I figured a day of sleep would fix me up.

But the next day I got up and felt worse. So I went to the doctor and he looked me over but couldn't really find anything. So he gave me something for my stomach and told me to call him if I didn't feel better on Monday.

Over the weekend I developed a fever that shot up to 103.8! So I called my doctor and he decided I had an infection and to come in Monday unless I felt better.

So Monday I went in and he pushed around until he found the exact spot where I hurt and he decided I had some sort of infection. So he put me on antibiotics and told me to come in last tuesday.

It seems this infection is a particularly nasty one and he's worried it'll come back. So he put me on another round of antibiotics.

However, Weds at work I noticed I had the sniffles!

Now I have a full blown cold, except I cannot take vitamin-C or Zinc tablets because of the antibiotics!

So, it's the day after Christmas, I'm off work, the weather is awesome and i feel like crap!
