How Can Something So Tiny Do So Much Damage?

I picked Keegan up from daycare last night and Tom came shortly after to bring him to his house. I forgot what a b*tch strep can be. My throat isn't even that sore. But the chills and the body ache are the worst. Every muscle and bone hurt. I took every thing in the house and was only able to sleep an hour and a half maximum 5 hours at a time. I took my third dose of antibiotics at 6 this morning. My temp was 101.7 even after having had ibuprofen an hour earlier. I finally got out of bed a few minutes ago because I needed to call into work and I should eat something. I have a ton of things on my schedule tomorrow including a presentation. I would like to be able to do them but we'll see how the rest of the day and night go. I cancelled going to Selfish Mom's club tomorrow night because I don't want to expose them. Hopefully I will be able to fly on Thursday evening.
