I went home sick. That's really all you need to know. I haven't thrown up yet, but if I do, I'll be sure to spare you the details. $190 for SPAFF though. W00t. Oh, and instant mashed potatoes + Coke = I-don't-feel-quite-so-much-like-I'm-going-to-toss-my-cookies. Not that I had any cookies this morning.

So basically I felt really sick in homeroom (especially since there was some bad-smelling nasty air stuff in there), so I asked to go to the nurse's office, where I found out that I had a fever. A small fever, granted, but a fever nonetheless. They sent me home because "if you have a fever, then you're contagious". -AAAAGH! Proof statements!- Yeah. There was this one other girl there who had just thrown up, so she got sent home too. The nurse had asked us why we came to school today if we didn't feel good, and we both told her that we had felt fine that morning. So maybe we have the same "bug" thing.

Weird thing: I'm pretty sure my thermometer at home is busted, because my fever at school was 99.3 degrees (Fahrenheit), which is only .7 degrees above normal, but when I took my temperature at home it was only 97.5, which is 1.1 degrees below normal. Odd.

Oh, and I have a headache too. Which is sometimes right on the side of my head but other times right by my nose. And there was this weird thing like I was losing peripheral vision in my left eye, and it kind of seemed like I'd been staring into a bright light for too long and couldn't see properly. Because you can definitely diagnose my headache from all this.

Holy crap! You can!

Exact. Fucking. Symptoms. And it was the first link on the first site that I went to. (I googled "headaches" and the one right below the light blue bar--that's it.) So maybe I throw up, maybe not. Argh.

Oh, and according to this one: http://headaches.about.com/cs/headpain101/a/anatomy_mig.htm, the weird loss-of-peripheral-vision bit was just part of my aura, which is one of the four stages of a migraine. Interesting....
