This is the second time this year. I wish my mom would come home. I hate being alone when I'm sick. Sorry I'm whining so much but I feel so sick right now. I'm also feeling really depressed too. I don't know why. I just feel helpless and alone. I hate when this happens. I'm going to end up spending the whole day crying. I wish I didn't feel this way so much. I'm trying so hard to be strong but I can't do this all by myself anymore. I'm sick of trying to act happy just to make people not worry about me. I just want to scream and explode and let my emotions out but I don't know how. Ok, I'm done. I'm gonna try and sleep.
1. take the blankets off, take paracetamol and drink 2 pints of water. You have to get your temperature down. A temperature is like running a race. People die of dehydration, heart failure. They die of exhaustion. This is not a joke. My ex husband was 20 mins from death when i found him with a temp of 105 he was delirious. you're basically one degree off no longer being able to take care of yourself.

2. Call the doctor, or your mother, or an ambulance. 104 is your upper limit. You are on your upper temperature limit.

3. Check your body for hot spots, cuts and abrasions.

Does anyone have this girl's cellphone number?

You breathing girl? We are worried about you.

And no more trying to play the tough girl here and cover things up. Rule is this is where the tough girls go to get to be soft occasionally, ok? If you are sick or down, spill it. Nobody can be Sally Sunshine all the time

Hey kiddo! Did you stay in the hospital or go home last night? Are you better or what's goin on? The time difference for us (I'm east coast... waaaay east) is what? 5-6 hours? It would be just after midnight in Hawaii?

I hope you're feeling better -- or sleeping!

That weepy, curled up in a ball feeling, want my mommy - or any mommy, feeling you were talking about... is one way I know that I'm "really" sick - it's a symptom, just like the fever. It's more than I can simply deal with and carry on, till it goes away.

I'll check back here, later to see how you're doin'...

My goodness, I hope you are ok. There is nothing weak about realizing you need help. No matter how tough we are there are times in everyone's life when they need some help to get back to normal ... I'm praying for you.

Whew! So glad you got it diagnosed, treated and are on the mend. Please file this away for future reference. Like Abs said, 104 is the upper limit.

I empathize with how you got to the place you were at. I didn't realize how sick I was when son bundled me into his car and hauled me to the Quick Care doc. Double ear infection, sinus infection, double bronchitis. Lesson learned: do not self-diagnose. (I "just have a little cold." A few days later, "well, I have a bad cold.")

Did the doc or your mom mention anything about boosting your immune system? Pro-biotics, multi-vitamin? Since you're a full-time student and working, stress might be impacting your immune system. Just a thought.

Praying for a quick and full recovery.

Because the smaller you are, the quicker icky stuff can run through your system. Listen to Mom. She sounds wise.

That, and people who weigh less can be more easily injured by things that would not hurt others so much. Something that might bruise a person of average weight could potentially break bones in someone who is underweight.

Lean protein is good for building muscle, whether it is from meat or vegetable sources. Plus it helps to heal faster when you are injured or ill. That might be one reason why chicken soup has always been such a cliche', but most people eat it when they're sick.

Not necessarily. I can run extremely high temps and not be close to delirious or even seriously ill. I hold records at two hospitals, 106.4 and 106.6. I can still run 104 as an adult with just a common cold (which is great, as I get moved to the head of the line at the walk in clinics )

But then some children have been known to have convulsions with only a 100 degree temp.

Like emh said: lean meat or vegetable proteins. The good calories. Not banana splits, milk shakes and candy bars. From your posts you lead an active life, are young, and probably have a high metabolism, so you could get away with a pint of your favorite ice cream in one sitting right before bedtime. Just not *every* night.

Moms like healthy children. We're funny that way.

Great jumping Jehoshaphat! I run 'sub-normal as normal' -- 97.4 is not unusual. At 102 and I'm dragging my butt. Over that and I begin to "ramble" (slipping into delirium).

I am sub normal as well, 96.8 is norm, 99 and I am running a high temp and draggin butt, anything over 101 and I am completely worthless.


I am glad you went in and got checked. Being underweight can also affect your immune system. Just as much as being overweight. Listen to mom, she will take care of you. Try to take some time to relax, an overabundance of stress is not good for you either, it increases your blood pressure, and can cause heart problems. Take care of yourself hon. And if you need to talk about what is bugging you, I am sure we are here for you. If you would rather talk one on one, then feel free to message me. I understand about being down in the dumps, depressed, or whatever name you want to give it.

At least you seemed rational. When I get a fever that high, I'm crazy as a sack full of squirrels. And it feels so good, I won't cooperate with anyone trying to help me. Get better soon. Ear infections are miserable.
