the day i thought i would die

last week i was so sick
first i thought it was only allergies
then i realized i had a bad cold
on Friday i was finally feeling better
so i went to the dentist
by Saturday i was so sick again!
fever fever and a horrible pain on the back of my neck
i battled the fever and pain over the weekend
i was so sick i felt so exhausted that i couldn't
drag myself to the emergency room on Sunday
and i was a feeling a bit better
Monday arrived and pull strength from dunno where
and i made it to work
just to feel awful throughout the day
the pain on the neck was so horrible
and the fever continued
but yet the stiff neck was the worst
a co-worker even mentioned meningitis!
i freaked out and in spite of not finding
an appointment with a doctor
i pushed for one with a physician's assistant
this lady was actually very through
better than many doctor's i've been too
she checked my neck, and even if i had fever
it wasn't very high anymore
she thought what i have is a mix of really strong sinus infection
and muscle strains 'cause of posture, computer use
and stress, probably from the dentist's chair too

anyway, i am on a bunch of medications
but apparently, i will make it OK
so after all, today wasn't the day i died
it's 11.32pm, so i have just 28 minutes more
to make it to tomorrow
i really hope i will

Holà Berenice,

Only now I am reading about your ordeal.

The computer is really a dangerous machine and not only for the eyes.

What about getting up every 50 minutes or so and make some compensatory movements. Nobody would object I think.

This text is written like a poem. If you could do it away from the PC, what about making it rhyme?

Cheers Berenice
Georg

hi herr Georg, thanks for your note, and you are so right! This machine makes one sick, I will follow your advice, maybe the rhyme one too?

Vielen Dank!

Like Georg, I too thought this post would make for a great poem : )
Hope you are feeling better.

Arrgghh! Bella Bere. Hope you are feeling much better by now. That was some horrible symptoms to have to put up with. I'm glad it wasn't meningitis, though it still sounded nasty nonetheless! Please get well soon!
