Lucky you. I got knocked down hard a couple weeks ago for the first time in years. Just being sick is no problem and I keep on working.Guess I have never had the flu.
I have had a couple of very unusual illnesses that required hospital visits. I contracted Meningitis about 20 years ago and that was really weird. Chills(tremors really) vomiting, fever so high that I was hallucinating. Thought I was gonna die! I also had a staph infection about 10 years ago that was also serious. I am able to avoid the little stuff, but the big stuff catches me every decade or so.Lucky you. I got knocked down hard a couple weeks ago for the first time in years. Just being sick is no problem and I keep on working.
This thing (whatever it was) came up one night and I went to work and tried to work and it got worse quickly. I couldn't even pick up my tools to load them back in the truck. I swept up, left the tools in situ, and drove home.
It took 2 days of sleep and sweating it out/puking, etc. before I could even get out of bed.
All better now!:laughing:
I remember driving to work one time and feeling increasingly nauseous. By the time I pulled into the driveway at work, I was not really sure what was coming up/out, or from where. I sprang from my truck, burst into the porta pot, and puked all over the inside. After that, I felt ok and finished the day. Real bad day for anyone wanting to use the toilet though.I rarely get sick, but when I do it's usually pretty bad. I've only missed work once while being sick. I tried making it in but I was puking and everything was spinning. Drove about two blocks and decided i shouldn't drive.
Lasted for about a week, worst I've ever felt.
