Burning the Candle at both Ends

Hey gals and guys ๐Ÿ˜,

So Lidl done it!They worked me until they broke me ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

I was due to work 6pm until 11pm on Sunday.I had been out the previous two nights so when I woke up on Sunday morning feeling a little worse for wear I wasn’t too worried.I thought I’d go back to sleep for a few hours and I would be right as rain again.

I woke up at 10:30pm and knew immediately this was no hangover.My throat felt like it was on fire,I had a fever,I was shaking,it hurt to swallow and I was losing my voice but what was most concerning was that my gland on the right side were sore to touch.My first action was to check the mirror to see if my neck was twice its size but it looked fine.I messaged my mother privately on Facebook to see if she thought it was serious enough to ring the out of hours GP but I got no reply so in sheer panic I posted a status on Facebook for medical advice ๐Ÿ˜‚A few people got back to me saying to make an appointment with the out of hours GP.I rang up and she told me to come in at 1:30pm.

I got a taxi to the other side of the city which was quite expensive but I hadn’t the energy nor was I in the mood for getting the bus.When I arrived at the doctor surgery I went to the waiting room.I was there a few minutes and I was getting agitated by another patient sitting across from me.She was coughing constantly without covering her mouth ๐Ÿ˜ ๐ŸคขNo wonder she was ill,she was wearing short shorts in the pissing rain!Finally at 2:15pm I was called into the doctor’s office.

I discussed my symtoms and how I had been extremely exhausted all the time.Thats when the doctor became concerned.She decided to take blood tests.She took four samples of blood but the only two I remember her saying what they were was for underactive thyroid and diabetes ๐Ÿ˜ฏShe asked me about my periods and forms of contraceptive.I told her how my periods had been different the last 2 months but lied and said I had it checked already.I also lied about my contraceptive because the truth is I am embrassed to say I don’t use any with Keith and we are not in an exclusive relationship๐Ÿ˜•.Now I am freaking out ๐Ÿ˜–What if Keith has been sexually active with another woman a few months ago and got something off her that I now have?Why did I lie?Then I reassured myself that if I have anything it will show up in my blood tests but things like Chlamydia don’t so I am going to go get an STI check from another doctor.I may be overreacting.Keith assures me he always used condoms with other women but he hasn’t exactly been the most truthful guy in the past ๐Ÿ˜

After she took the blood samples she checked my pulse and heart rate.Thankfully they were both fine but she was worried that I am suffering from exhaustion and decided that I couldn’t continue to work.She signed me off with a sick note.The doctor had no firm diagnosis so she wrote I was suffering from tonsilitis,acute fatigue and currently awaiting test results for glandular fever.I was also dehydrated so she put me on bed rest and ordered me to drink plenty of fluids.In the meantime my mam had got in touch so when I finished with the appointment I rang her.In her typical style she gave out to me for burning the candle at both ends but she was also worried that there is also another underlying issue.So by Friday I should know what is going on.In the meantime I am doing exactly as the doctor ordered and I am resting in bed.

Even lying in bed though I am stressing out.Stressing about Australia and stressong about Keith.He has been quite distant the last week.I know he explained that he is doing this IT course and is studying alot but we have only 7 weeks left to spend time together before I leave here!I want to spend as much time with him as possible and I thought that was what he wanted to but maybe it was just wishful thinking on my part.It doesnt matter now anyway because I have to concentrate on getting back to full health.At the end of the day I just have to remember that people who truly what to be in your life will make time for you and my besties are always there when I need them.A woman can survive without a man but not her bestfriend/s.


Positive vibes always,

Shauna ๐Ÿ˜—
