I went and took my blood pressure, which was slightly high, but my pulse rate was through the roof. I didn't actually throw up, but I nearly did, and after a couple of hours, the acute symptoms passed, but I felt all wrung out, so much so that I called in sick today, something I really did not want to do because I'd like to preserve my PTO account for vacations, not sick leave.

It feels like a small bit of food poisoning, although maybe it happens that what Lisa had a few days ago wasn't food poisoning but something contagious with a several days incubation period, and now I have to endure it. Bleah.
