What is wrong with me?

For the last couple of days, I've been ill. But the exact nature of the illness eludes me.

On Friday, I stayed home from work. I was tired, had a headache and felt a little nauseated. Saturday, I was a little better but not 100%. Sunday, I felt fine and went to work.

On Monday, I felt fine when I woke up but then was overwhelmed with exhaustion, nausea and that same lingering headache. I went to lie down for a minute and ended up sleeping for a couple of hours. I got up, had lunch, then slept again. I went to bed around 11pm and slept until 9am.

What is this weird illness I have? No fever or aches, so not the flu. But a weird kind of wooziness and tiredness. I didn't sleep today, but I did stay home from work again. Hmm...maybe it's that it's my most-disliked supervisor's last week. Nah, that can't be it!

I have lots of work to do and I managed some of it by email between naps. I didn't really ask for the sick days, just let the supervisor know I was staying home.

Oh, and I wasn't really home. I'd gone over to Curt's on Sunday night and I ended up staying over again on Monday because I was so out of it. He was very nice about it, letting me sleep and keeping me fed and comfortable. Even better, we had a good, easy time together.

Years ago, I got stranded at a bf's house due to a huge snowstorm. We ventured out for supplies and spent a week eating well and watching a lot of movies. He went out during that time but I got a cold and was basically housebound. It was probably the best time we had in our entire relationship--that little bit of playing house. With Curt, well, it wasn't like that since it wasn't so long, but we had some of the same rhythms and it was comforting, though I'm not sure how he felt about it. He needs a lot of alone time and we don't see each other more than three times a week usually--even now. I enjoy "togetherness" more than he does but he seemed fine (and I can more or less tell when he's unhappy by now). 

It's back to work tomorrow, unless I have a fever or something. Enough is enough!

Grateful for: a few days rest.
