The flu and stuff

Last week I got sick. It started on Tuesday, I went to teach my two  dog classes after work. When I got home I was just beat.  I told my husband that I didnt think I could teach these classes anymore. It was just to much for me. But the next morning I felt ok. But by 9am, my throat hurt and I felt like I got hit by a truck. It went down hill from there. I went to the doctor and they felt I had the flu even though my flu test was negative.  Friday was the worse. I woke up at 2am and was on fire. I almost couldnt walk the 30 feet from my bedroom to the kitchen to get medication. I thought, its a good thing I dont have little kids anymore because I couldnt take care of them.  I started feeling better Saturday afternoon. Monday and Tuesday I was beat after working and just went home a laid on the the couch. Wednesday I felt back to normal and went and taught my dog classes. The again, I woke up this morning and was beat again. Im not sure how I made it through the day of work. This crap is killing me. I need a break. Then a weird thing, my big toe hurts for no reason at all. It only hurts when Im not doing anything. Its not swollen or bruied. I didnt get hurt, no one stepped on it but it wont stop hurting and its making me crazy. Im so over all of this.  Im over dog agility too. I suck at it. I just cant run fast enough to  get to where I need to be.  Next week is our trial here in Columbia and my dogs arent ready at all. I shouldnt even be running them. I probably shouldnt post this because Im being so negative. Sorry.

I hope your feeling better soon, it's exhausting when you're sick. I hope you don't give up agility. I'm not great at it either but I think my dogs love the time with me. It's great when we Q but the little sucesses are great too, keep your focus on that.

Everything seems worse than it is when you are sick. Hope you get well soon and stay that way! :)

it is never fun to feel so yuk especially when you have an underlying condition to deal with on top of it. Hope you feel better soon - maybe it is time to slow down and give yourself time to feel better

Diana,

I wonder if you have gout. I know it sounds weird, but that is the main symptom. Hope you feel better soon.

Oh Diana, I'm sorry you had such a horrible week. Actually longer than a week. I know I'm just horrible at being sick, you did way better than I would have, you actually went to work AND taught the dog class! I hope you're feeling better before the trial. And maybe the girls will run just fine by then. You just never know about the dogs! I'm sending you cyber hugs!

I'm sorry. Sounds like everything is hitting you all at once. It's hard to think positive when you are feeling so down.

And you don't suck at agility. I watch your videos and am SO jealous. Your dogs have terrific skills, and your handling always seems so effortless. Seriously, I'm jealous.
