Somehow, I caught it. I felt it in my throat on Wednesday during trial. I man’ed up and fought through it. That night I went to Walgreens and purchased Emergen-C. Drank one at night.
That night I had no sleep but I woke up feeling alright. I went to work and was in court all day. My nose was dripping, my head was throbbing and clients were pulling me left and right. I had to go through a final violation of probation hearing (a mini trial where you have witnesses testify and at end the judge then finds if the defendant violated probation) where I could not stand and my head was throbbing so hard. I left court like 5:30 and the ride home was horrible. I felt like I needed to puke and I was just praying that I could get home quick. Traffic was a bit rough and then it loosened up. I made it home and I ran straight to my bed. I turned off all the lights and dimmed my cell phone light and I rested. I didn’t even sleep but I just laid down and chilled. Within an hour I was feeling much better.
I should have never went to work but I couldn’t afford not to be there. I needed rest. My body was already tried from trying a case and then this little bug came and made matters worse.
So today, I’m chilling. I have some work that I need to do but I am not going in – it’ll be there on Monday.
Be safe out in these streets that damn bug is on the run.
