Land of the Living... Barely

The common symptoms of the flu include:

  • Fever (usually high) Check, if you call 100.7 high, but check on the fever..
  • Headache CHECK!!!!
  • Muscle aches The worst part of it all - check!!!
  • Chills Check - only had them twice, but that's twice too many.
  • Extreme tiredness Check, but unable to sleep (see other symptoms).
  • Dry cough Check - but not dry.
  • Runny nose may also occur but is more common in children than adults - Definite check for me, guess I'm still a child at heart!
These past few days have completely sucked, internet friends, I won't lie, but little by little I'm returning to the land of the living - not feeling like you're going to die is a start, right? Hopefully Tim is not coming down with this, too, but this morning it was not looking good for him. Luckily, Bridget seems to be holding her own. I'm thankful for the flu shot she got and keeping every single thing in my body crossed that she doesn't get what I've had for the past three days.

I will return to regularly scheduled whenever I feel like it blogging as soon as I feel like a human again: AKA - when my taste for non-fat mocha's and egg McMuffin's return.

Wash your hands people, know the flu facts! :) I'm bathing myself in Purell and Oust pure air sanitizer these days.

PS - Yes, that is a New Kids on the Block Donnie Wahlberg button hiding under the salt and pepper (don't ask) on my night stand, wanna make something of it?

I am right there with you. Jeremy, Ava and I all got it. Jeremy's wasn't too bad, and thankfully Ava's wasn't as bad as it could have been. Mine was insane! The only thing that helped the headache in the least were hot showers. I was up to 3 times a day... and we all had the flu shot...ugghhhh.

Feel better soon. PS the cough lingers FOREVER...
