I need this like I need another hole in my head

I took yesterday off since I haven't taken squat for vacation days and have too many "use or lose" days. I thought one day - even though I'm buried in work - would be ok.

Aaaand guess what? I now have influenza. Great. I went home around lunchtime (hopefully I didn't spread my cooties too far and wide) and have been quite the zombie since. JuneBug seems sympathetic while JonJon is now being a drama queen - the dork.

So clearly I'll be off tomorrow but I hope that's it for a while. Interestingly I'm the type of person that never seems to get a fever no matter how sick I am. In fact my usual body temp is around 97.9. Not long ago I was up to 102. Talk about stewing in my own juices.

Doing fluids, rest (kitty permitting) and Aleve.

Good health wishes! I hope the kitty does permit.

If you do need another day off, it works out better in the long run than going back too soon and relapsing.

Definitely took today off. The fever finally broke, thank goodness, but I'm still left with one NASTY cough and a near-migraine quality headache and body aches.

The funny thing is that on the way driving to work yesterday, I heard on the news that there's an unusual peak of the flu right now and then a few hours later it dawns on me that I have it.

Yikes! Feel better soon!

*fans you*

Thanks. Getting there, albeit slowly.

Oddly, I also found a big ugly bruise on my left side. It's yellowish so I guess it happened at least a few days ago but I don't recall anything happening. I'm fallin' apart here! lol

As are we all. I'm getting ready to soak in an Epson salts bath.
