This morning my temperature was back down to 98.7, which is still very high for my post-ME/CFS self, especially for the morning. But it's not technically a fever anymore. So who knows, but maybe this means something good and maybe it doesn't?
I am encouraged simply because I have never had any temperature this high since before I came down with ME/CFS. Every time I thought my temperature was high, it would turn out to be low -- usually in the low 97s if not in the high 96s. So this low body temperature has always been a hallmark of ME/CFS for me; an objective, tangible measurement of one thing that makes ME/CFS different than all my previous, non-chronic illnesses. If that has somehow changed...well, I can't get ahead of myself yet.
Since I'm out of paid time off (PTO) for the year, except for two days which I'm saving for later, I still dragged myself into work today, which is fun.
