Three evil letters - FLU

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Yeah, I have fallen victim to the flu too. It started Saturday morning at about 11 am. I had eaten breakfast and bathed. I came into the living room, sat on the couch. Hit me like a ton of bricks. Mind you, I hadn't had the flu since I was 12 years old. It started with a headache and fever coupled with chills then I also had wheezing going on-like I couldn't get enough air. I had had migraines a couple of times in the past, so that's what I thought it was. Later that day the fever went down, but it returned the next morning and the chills...I can't even describe them. I was only taking excedrin and tylenol over the weekend. Well, when I went to my doctor yesterday, I had a 103 fever, chills, body aches, headache, wheezing-the whole nine yards. My doctor gave me Tamiflu, an Inhaler, Singular, antibiotic. About the antibiotic...I took it on an empty stomache. Big mistake. So basically I was throwing up nothing and then dry heaving. yeah, this has been fun. Having the flu is worse than giving birth. The hardest part of this is keeping my daughter away from me. I definitely don't want her to get this crap. Oh yeah, another thing, the antibiotic gives me diarrhea. it works, but gives me diarrhea.
