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. 😁 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. 💜
