Had a fever yesterday.............

never took my temperature, but I was hot & a blithering idiot. I was mumbling things about my nephew going to India (he's not), couldn't remember anything. I was going in and out of sleep in a chair. Crawled into bed with the clothes I wore all day, went from freezing to sweating, had a dry hacking cough.

Today I'm tired, no fever, still have a cough, and have a hell of a lot to do for tomorrow. Why can't my body realize what needs to be accomplished?

And that is to get well!

Take it easy today, lots of fluids, REST. You're still sick, and this is what you need to do to get well...

I'm sorry, and I hope you recover quickly.

Pushing yourself is not the way to do that, unfortunately.
