The Flu

Would you believe I’m still sick?

I know! It’s been almost 4 weeks. Apparently that’s normal. And here I was thinking I’d be healed in a week,Haha Haha!

This illness has been hilarious. I’ve lost hearing on one side, I developed PINKEYE ( what am I, a five year old?) and daily I’m being hit with sore throat attacks that come and go randomly with no rhyme or reason. I keep thinking -Ok what new symptom am I going to experience next?!

I think the worst thing is the fatigue and disinterest in anything that requires energy. I feel like one giant puddle of ooze. The plus side of this is that I feel zero guilt for sitting around these past 4 weeks. ๐Ÿ˜ AND it sure makes January FLY by!

I’m a healthy human with no underlying issues. I have near perfect immunity to the various flu viruses out there. The last time I was ill was 9 years ago. I take precautions against illness daily and while I’m not young, I’m not all that old either.

Which brings me to the whole point of this post ( really, I’m not just whining):

This virus is nasty in me, a healthy person, it must be hell on the elderly and folks who have underlying health issues. I see why health care professionals are so keen on the flu shot. I just want to wrap up the vulnerable and keep them safe so they don’t get sick,gah.

Take care of yourselves, Peeps. And take care of your neighbors too. ๐Ÿ’œ

  1. Pinkeye is same creepycrawlies as strep throat. Ask me how I know… G’won… Ask. *Sigh*.

  2. One of my former co-worker’s wives had some nasty bug that held on like that. You make a really good point that if it affects a healthy person like that, how much worse for someone who is compromised. Are you feeling like you are headed towards health or still in the middle of it, Lael?

  3. Patty was sick over Christmas and thinks it may have been the flu. Someone coughed directly into her face at a public event…Yuch. Her flu lasted about 2 weeks and was fairly mild, so even if the flu shot is not perfect, it may give a weaker version. What is with people not knowing how to stifle a cough or sneeze Dracula style? Get well soon Lael. It is almost Feb. Allan

    • Uck,poor Patty! That’s just gross.
      That’s what I’ve heard too, that you may still get the flu with the vaccine but it won’t be as bad. My grandson had the vaccine and he’s the one who gave it to me,lol.
      I love that..sneezing Dracula style๐Ÿ˜
