Worse before better?

I hate being sick. Have I said this before? I did as my doctor suggested and stayed home on Wednesday. I stayed in bed most of the day and did a little bit of work for my grad school class. I went to bed last night around 10 but continued to cough up my lungs until around 3:00 a.m. I finally slept intermittently from 3:00 to 6:00 and then realized I was getting a fever when I got the chills. I took my temperature at 6:00 and it was 100.5. I needed to go to school since we were heading out for our district tournament today. So I took a shower and took 3 tylenol to get the fever down. It started working but I didn't really feel better when I got to school. I took my antibiotic and used my inhaler and in the middle of first period I felt like I was going to pass out or throw up. I left my class working and headed to bathroom and vomited. I realized that I wasn't going to make it through the day so I contacted the secretary to see if I could go ahead and get a sub for the rest of the day. We worked it out and I left emergency plans and headed home. I fell into bed around 10 and slept until close to 1:00. I finally got up and had some lunch and then got ready to go to the tournament. I got there about 3:00 and stayed until 6:30. I came home and have been working on my grad paper that is due tonight. I now need to type it up and submit it before 11:55. I just took 1/2 a tylenol pm so I better get going on it before I'm knocked out. I really hope that I start feeling better tomorrow. I can't take any more sick days or I'll lose out on part of the grant money I'll get this summer. Luckily I already have a sub for tomorrow since the tournament is still going on. My assistant is also meeting the students at the school tomorrow so I don't have to drive over. Now I just need to get this assignment done.
