So it turns out that if you go to the midnight showing of New Moon and you eat lots of ridiculously rich and yummy fondue beforehand and have a few drinks and then you're standing in line for concessions and you feel all yucky and dizzy and your back hurts and you have to sit down for a bit?
It might not just be the food and drink.
And if you spend the whole next day feeling weak and dizzy and your stomach hurts and you stick it out and even go to the after-work get-together with some colleagues and get your kids home and to bed and then stay up a little later making your son's birthday gift and finally collapse into bed because you still feel like crap?
It might not just be the two-and-a-half hours of sleep and lack of proper eating during the day.
And if you wake up the next day and your stomach is cramping and your legs are wobbly and you feel dizzy and your back hurts and you have chills and then certain other symptoms start showing up and so you cancel your plans to visit grandparents with the kidlets that day and instead spend the day huddled under the covers until you finally decide maybe you should go to urgent care because it's all getting worse?
It might not be a simple stomach bug.
No, it might turn out to be that you have a urinary tract infection that is working its way to your kidneys.
Thank God for antibiotics.
(And yes, I'm feeling quite a bit better, thank you! Now to get through the birthday party after all...)
