Does anyone else rarely get a fever when ill?

I'm pretty sure I'm coming down with the flu here, but the thermometer reads 98.6. Damn it! I can't count the number of times doctors have said, "You certainly have (insert illness here), but no fever. Odd." This may sound good, but my mother would never let me stay home from school unless I had a fever or was vomiting. She would see my temp. was normal, but send me to school feeling like I was dying.

My elementary school would also let students lay down if they had a fever of at least 100, but I would feel pretty damn sick and they'd say, "Sorry, 98. Go back to class."
