So I started getting sick on Monday. Usually, when I start to get sick, I just accept that I will be sick. This time, I said I was going to fight it and not get sick. I got those burst of vitamin pills that you dissolve in water and started taking those. I haven't had a fever for years, and when I used to get fevers, they would only last a day.
Well later in the day I got a fever. I had a fever for three days (anywhere from 100 degrees F to 103 degrees F). Finally, last night I told my body I was done fighting. Today I woke up with my fever gone.
The reason I think I attracted a fever is everything I have read online indicates that this is the way the body fights infections.
Now granted, this is my first time experiencing this, so it is by no means a scientific study, but it is very interesting to myself.
