...I have the stomach flu, yet again. Apparently Oklahoma doesn't like me, just as much as I don't like it. Last night before we ate, Mark said his head hurt and he didn't feel very good and he was getting the chills. Around 1-2am, I started waking up with some pretty back stomach pains/cramps, and woke up every 15-30 mins until I finally got up at 7am. I was going to try to go to work, but I was still doubling over in pain from my stomach ache, so I decided to try to relax until around 1pm and go in then. I had a half a glass of juice and about 10 bites of oatmeal, but by 1pm I wasn't feeling any better at all. I felt really guilty telling my boss I still didn't feel good. I had this exact same thing last month too and I think I missed a day or two of work then, plus I'd been off for a week before Christmas too. I'm always afraid they're not going to believe me when I tell them I'm sick. I went back to bed at 1pm (although I'd just been laying on the couch all morning) and slept until around 5pm. It's now almost 10pm and I'm starting to feel a little better. I've ached all over all day though, and my stomach is either constantly hurting or I'll get really sharp cramps and then nothing for a few minutes.
I really don't know why I keep getting sick here. We've lived here since May 2007, and I've had the flu FIVE times since then. I can't remember the last time I had the flu before then. I think I had one sinus infection during the 2 years we lived in FL, and I'd take a sinus infection over the stomach flu ANY day. Oklahoma and I just don't get along I guess. The climate here (it was 71 degrees here today) or something must through my system off, or maybe these last 2 flu's have been because I'm pregnant, I don't know. But this week, the only place I went without Mark was to work, and I'm sick and he's not. I'm just sick of getting sick all the time. Not my idea of fun...
