Down With The Sickness - (Korea) Day 111

Yes...I am borrowing a 2-star general's cup to drink my theraflu.

Work call this morning was at 0600. Since Saturday I had started having a little cough, but today it seemed to take a turn for the worse. When I got to work we setup a meeting in the secret conference room, then the top secret conference room. After that I went to our conference room and just sat in the control room. I just felt like total crap today. My nose was running, my skin hurt, my head hurt, I was coughing like crazy. I feel like I have asthma or something and I need an inhaler. My sergeant asked if I wanted to head to the medical clinic, but I told him I'd tough it out. I don't know what they'll do except make me sit and wait in a room for a long time, then give me some cold medicine.
We cleaned up from the meeting, then SPC Roy gave me a ride to the PX where I bought my own cold/flu medicine. I took it and hung out in the control room. After a while of trying to get comfortable in the chairs I gave up and just laid on the floor. Just a crappy day all around. I didn't eat lunch, just laid on the floor taking medicine every so often until about 1600 when my sergeant said we could all go home. SPC Roy gave me a ride to my barracks where I just went in and relaxed. I took some airborne, ate some dinner and watched some shows. I also submitted my final paper for my current class…another one down. I had to call and check in with my sergeant every two hours just to let him know I'm alive…lol

I'm going to bed early tonight. Everyone is going in at 0700 tomorrow except me, they said I could go in at the normal time which is awesome! I'm looking forward to the rest.

Husband, you look how I felt all day Saturday. Hopefully what you have is only a 24 hour bug... I was sick all weekend and I can barely move today (Monday) but this chick needs to work. Ugh...

Love you.

I am a 28 year old Marine wife who is thinking about joining the Army. I LOVED reading this blog and all of the information you provided. Thank you so much for helping me with my decision.
My cousin is an E-6 stationed where you are but I have a hard time identifying with his training since so much has changed. I'll keep your family and mine in my thoughts. Stay safe!

P.S. I go to University of Phoenix too. Lots of work!

Thanks guys...I am now finally feeling better.

@FS Miller :) that's what I was thinking when I titled the page

@Julie... glad you have enjoyed reading it, besides friends and family it's people like you that I decided to make this for. I'm constantly told all the time that being in Korea isn't like "the real army", so I'm sure my next duty station will be entirely different.
