I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything here for a few days!
Well I have a good excuse. I’ve been sick again. What else is new eh? I’ve had a constant fever from sometime Saturday evening up until sometime earlier today.
It’s not unusual for me to have several fevers in a day or even several fevers each day for days on end. It just goes with my Crohn’s disease. In fact it’s so common that’s why I came up with the name Feverish Thoughts for this sites domain.
It’s been a while though since I’ve pretty much had a constant fever for days on end!
I don’t know how you feel when you have a fever … I’ll bet you probably have other symptoms going on when you get one … but for me, a fever just zaps all my energy. I’m shivering with the chills or too hot as my fever comes down and I’m just too tired to think or do much of anything.
Surprisingly my crohn’s pain is usually a little better or rather less painful when I have a fever and it gets worse again when the fever finally goes away. So right now my fever seems to be gone but I’ve got bad abdominal pain. Go figure. I can’t win for losing!
Obviously I haven’t been up to too much in the last few days what with my fevers zapping all my energy. Other than our current ice, snow and thunder storm that’s going on the only other interesting thing that’s happened in the last few days is that an old friend came over to see me on Monday.
My friend was in the area and she decided to pop in for a quick visit. I hadn’t seen her for maybe two years! She moved from the area when she got married two years ago, changed jobs and we just kind of lost touch with each other.
She’s going to have a few more changes in her life soon too. When I gave her a hug I couldn’t help but feel a baby bump! After she took her coat off I could see that she definitely is expecting. She’s only about four and a half months along but she’s so excited she’s already wearing maternity jeans! She’s so cute.
My long lost friend stayed for two hours or so and we had a chance to catch up on what’s been happening in our lives.
I don’t really like having people over when I’m not feeling well, but it’s different when it’s a really good friend. She didn’t mind that I lay on the couch for part of our visit.
Anything interesting happening in your life? Hopefully you guys are healthier than I am lately!
