UGH.. I hate the flu.. I usually don’t get sick, but when I do, it seems that it makes me pay for all the days I’m not sick. Spent all last week in my bed instead of doing the work I needed to get done. Last Sunday I started feeling kind of icky.. I figured I was getting some sorta cold or something. Monday it hit me… I decided to take a bunch of vitamins, cold and flu medicine, and some sleepy pills. I figured if I could sleep all day Monday that I would be able to kill this cold before it started.
Tuesday came and while I didn’t feel super tops, I was determined to fight this thing hard and fast. On Tuesday afternoon I felt really good and that I might be okay to do work on Wednesday. When I went to bed that night I awoke at around 3 or 4 AM I was shivering cold. I piled up the blankets, pulled in the space heater and turned it up for around 90 degrees. That got me to at least a point where I wasn’t shivering. The next morning I had to break down and call mom. She came over and took me to the doctor where I had a temperature of around 101. He gave me a flu test which consisted of a pointy stick that a nurse shoved so far up my nose that I’m pretty sure it tickled my brain. Was a horrible test that I don’t think I’ll ever want to experience again! I’m going to get the flu shot next year, damn it!
The next couple of days I have gotten progressively better and now I’m staying with my girlfreind for the weekend and I don’t have a temp. Next week I’m sure will be total chaos, but I’m hoping that I’ll be back to 100%. Right now I’m still kind of dazed and confused.. everything seems kind of surreal, but it’s kind of funny too. Only thing that’s really pissing me off is my ears are clogged and my sense of taste is WAY off. Everything just kind of tastes the same. Well here’s to me getting better! :)
