Rough Week!

As I sat in my house for five days sicker than I've been in years, I had so much time on my hands. I couldn't really do anything because I had zero energy. I mean none. Could not lift my head off my pillow for days. I had strep throat, a temperature of 101 that would not break and this thing called scarlet fever. Yes, we probably have all read about it in some book in elementary school and now I was struck with it.

I complained that I didn't have time to stop and smell the roses on my last blog, well that crap sure bit me in the butt!! I sat and slept and sat again. Got on my computer in between my naps to work but then my energy was shot. This girl was hit!

It all caught up with me. I was dizzy, nauseous and wanted to puke. Debated on going to the hospital but pushed through it. Loved reading all my messages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Even the not so nice ones made me laugh. Some people are still writing about my weight. When does that stop?? Oh well! To each their own I guess. I'm happy losing over 50lbs. As I was lying there sweating and feeling like I was swallowing swords and reading messages how people were still calling me "fat" I just had to laugh to myself. Seriously!

I'm finally on the mend, scarlet fever is gone, fever is broken and I no longer have knives in my throat. I can get back to my one woman show called work and by the way, I can 100% say... I'm not the "fat" girl you once knew!

Enjoy your Tuesday!
