I have the crud. It started yesterday with sniffles and a not quite sore throat but a suspicious niggling ache. It got worse as I left work and went to the grocery store when I began to feel achey and my head stuffy. As I picked out eggs, mushrooms, bread, and meat I realized that though usually hungry at this time of day, I was not only NOT hungry but I was actually repulsed by the food around me. I checked out of the store, got home, put it all away, and fell on the couch. Bob knew I was sick the minute he saw me. He says he can see it in my eyes. They apparently look a certain way when I don't feel well. I was in bed and asleep by 7.
The symptoms of this crud seem to be, sore throat, full/stuffy head, chills, fever, sniffles/runny nose (oh man! I probably got it from that kid at the PT's office on Monday! Nice!), muscle aches, stuffy/achey ears, fatigue, and realistic pregnancy dreams. Well, maybe not that last one, but I dreamt a dream so startingly realistic in it's presentation, I woke up rubbing my belly and franticly trying to go into labor. (In the dream I was in labor but couldn't find the hospital in which to deliever the baby.) Oh, and I don't know if it's the crud or if it's all the juice I'm drinking to try and heal my sore throat, but I also have diaherria. Lovely.
I'm staying home today. I need to go back to bed now.
