I have a cold, but the weird thing is this: I am VERY dizzy. To the point that I am having some trouble staying upright. The doc checked for a stroke--nope. Whew. So another doc tells me that this is just a sign that my virus has gotten up into my brain, hence the giddiness.
So I took off Fri & Sat, then I worked Sunday in the Infirmary. Mistake, that. Total crash by 1 PM, then in bed Mon & Tues (my typical "weekend" days). Went to work today because I teach a class to custody every Wed morning. Another mistake (sigh.) Did fine in class, but passed out in car for an hour afterwards. When I reached my unit, the front door cop looked at me and said, "Go home now." Sock Queen had the same reaction.
The 90 minute drive home took 3 hours, due to rest breaks. Will I try to drive in again tomorrow? I doubt it. But Friday, I am the only one there for the Infirmary...
I'll try to edit while at home. Cross your fingers!
Hey, at least I finally finished my new socks!
