Shitty tuesday

Yesterday was a shitty day.
I think I need some days to be really bad every now and then, though, since I tend to take things for granted.
We are all laughing about it today, and I’m happy about that. But I’m still a little stress out – as the rashes on my body are here to remind me.
One of my colleagues has a two year old. She said her baby hadn’t been feeling well for a couple of days. Her little girl kept complaining about her knee and had a fever.
When I first heard she say that, the word meningitis popped into my brain, but as the drama queen that I am, I figured I was definitely overreacting and I din’t say anything, except that I really though she should see a doctor.
A couple minutes later, her husband called saying the little girl couldn’t move her neck.
Yes, I freaked.
I remembered her little eyes and how she reminded me so much of my little girls. I knew she was someone’s baby. I thought about my babies. About me. Were we all in danger?
I kept wishing that wasn’t real. I couldn’t eat or concentrate on anything.
So, our boss came and took my colleague to sick kids, where they actually confirmed she was gonna be tested for meningitis.
By the time he got back, pretty much all of our team was devastated. Him included. We just googled our fingertips off trying to dig up some good news.
I was specially worried because the little girl had some very specific symptoms like a stiff neck and pain on her knees.
I didn’t wanna go home. I didn’t wanna be sick and pass it to my girls. I didn’t want that little girl to be sick… I was just… Terrified.
But it was all a big nightmare and around 5:30 that night we woke up. I finally got a text saying “it’s a NO for meningites” and I could finally breathe again.
I was glad when the day was finally over.

  1. I think I was holding my breath for the entirety of that post and only exhaled when I read the ‘NO for meningitis ‘😳 Thank God everyone is ok!

    1. Yes, yes! I’m pretty sure I was holding my breath the whole day! We’re gonna make sure we all get vaccinated just so we can cross that one out of our worry list…! Every little bit helps!
