Y’all….I am just popping in to tell you what happened to me.
Last Sunday I started feeling very tired…and I had some chills. I ignored it. But come Monday same thing and it seemed to come and go. I assumed it was Covid. On Thursday I went to get tested and they said I would have the results in 2-4 days.
Thursday night was pretty bad….low grade fever…chills, headache and bad night sweats….
I woke up Friday morning and was very weak. I let Cami out and then headed to get her food which is 25 steps away. That is the last thing I remember as I woke up on the floor….I passed out and was vomiting. I didn’t even know where I was. It took me 2 hours to crawl back to my bedroom which is about 30 steps away [all one floor]. Y’all I was so sick…my whole body ached.
I had a horrible headache. I was convinced that it was Covid although I had no chest congestion at all. I had some neighbors walking Cami. I could barely walk.
The nights were the worst. The headache was killing me and I felt like I was hallucinating. I thought I saw Cami through my door standing in the family room barking. I had nightmares and I woke up completely soaked every morning. Finally on Sunday afternoon my friend showed up to take me to the ER.
You guys….I have never been to a hospital except to visit people. I was so frightened…..and no one can come in with you.
They started all kinds of testing. They retested for Covid [negative]. After about 3 hours of testing my friend texted me a reminder to tell them about the Tick bite on June 1st. Y’all….I think that was it. It was a Lone Star Tick which is very common in the south.
They did also perform a test for Lyme also but have not gotten those results back.
I was released around 6 pm on Sunday night with a prescription. I’m still very weak. I can barely walk….the bottom of my feet hurt and I am still having bad night sweats. The headaches are brutal.
I am hoping that by tomorrow after 48 hours on the meds maybe I will have some clarity. I was also told to see an Infectious Diseases doctor.
So that is why I disappeared. I hope to be back soon….it took all my energy to pull this together.
