So yesterday, I woke up still feeling sick, but felt I was getting better. I slept a LOT the night before - almost 11 hours!!! Whew, hadn't had that kind of sleep since I was 19 and doing 4-5 shows a night, lol. I showered, got dressed and was all set for work at KTU and a date I had made with a gentelman who teaches Rhumba and Cha-Cha at a dance studio in the city. Yea, paints a picture for you, huh? LOL...makes me think of a svelt, tall, perfect-postured man, with his hand held out to invite me to dance. But then, as I was literally inside the tunnel, I began to feel body aches again, and just an agonizing sensation that I wanted to sleep. I realized, at a very late juncture, that I didn't think I'd make it through my shift.
I called my boss and told him I was afraid I couldn't make it...could the dj after me come in a bit earlier? He told me he'd call me back. I drove around 2 times and found a GREAT parking space. I walked to the store to purchase apple juice, tea and water...my phone rang.
"Judy, don't come in...We got you covered. " Wow that was quick. Sounds strange, but I was so freaking relieved. Walked right back to my car, drove back home, bought chicken soup, placed a sorry-I-didn't-make-it-to-work status on Facebook, and put my head down. OH MY GOD! I had to call the dance instructor to cancel. He was, gratefully, understanding.
Went to see my caring Dr. today. Yes, I have bronchitis. I received medication...and then she went over my blood test results. Negative - for lupus; Negative - for Lyme Disease. Then she points out that I am Vitamin D deficient and that it may explain a little of the fatigue as well. There was somthing suspicious in my bloodwork and she referred me to a specialist...something about connective tissue disease - could be possible arthritis, although my phsycial indicated negative towards that too. Well, at least I may be getting some answers to why I KNOW I've not been myself lately! LOL
Well, my friends...take this blog as a sign to get yourself examined,. If you have not had a thorough physical in a long time, please do it. Do it for yourself; for without your health, you don't have anything!! Muah!
