Started to get sick yesterday on my way to work. First, the sore throat. Okay- I can deal. Then came the back pains, the warm face, and the shivers all day. Not really too thrilled about getting into the whole story, but I basically spent the whole day at work getting sicker because I would have been put through a big guilt trip if I tried to leave early (much like the one I got put through today when I called in after surviving a horrible fever last night). Still feeling like crap today. Ready to get off this island and be back in the states. My love leaves in a couple of weeks and hopefully I follow soon after. Not excited about our time apart, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Going to take the rest of the day easy and hope I feel better tomorrow.
