I completely understand, I usually don't ever let a bug get bad enough for me to get an chest infection. Because of how easy it is for things like that to escalate quickly for us I usually just go to my primary doctor or call and he will send me some antibiotics. I like him he really is an awesome doctor too bad he wasn't my rheumy. Any who I get weird infections, of course I get a lot of ear infections because my rash likes to go to my ears and it always gets infected. I get horrible in grown toe nails and that caused an infection in my big toe. I recently busted my lip in my sleep, I'm still not sure what happened but it did and it got infected. I just realized my primary must make fun of me because I come in for the weirdest stuff. I think I went in like twice in like 7 years for a bug but it's been mostly stuff like my toe.
Sorry I got off topic but I know the sicker I am the hotter my feet feel mostly because they are all swollen and stuff. I am like you though I always joke when a situation is bad, thats why I a lot of my friends and stuff never knew how bad things got with my disease because it was easier to make fun of it. I mean what else can you do really, I don't like brooding about something I can't change.
Another funny story so like you I have the bladder of an excited squirrel so if i'm really sleepy I fall asleep on the toilet a lot, usually for like 10 minutes or so. It was only funny when my sister was knocking on the bathroom door because she was worried about me, which woke me up, apparently an two hour nap in the bathroom worries people. ^^ no worries you will get better soon and laugh about those things.
