Well, it’s official. I’m sick. I was on my high and mighty horse, mocking the world at large for its inability to dodge the flu. It appears Karma decided to give me a swift kick in the ass and give me the experience everyone else seems to be having. Sniffles, sore throat, cough and generally rundown feeling. I don’t think that it’s the flu, as I haven’t had a fever, but I do know it’s contagious because my husband had it 4 days before I got it. The extremely bothersome part is that he is STILL slightly ill, and I haven’t even hit “rock bottom” yet (which he did on Saturday last week, 2 days after getting the beginning symptoms).
When I hit rock bottom, it’s going to be ugly. I’m just grateful that our office is a small group of people, rather than a huge corporation, and that it’s easy for people to avoid eachother there.
What drugs am I taking to get me through this blinkety blank blank bug? Tylenol makes a “Multi-Symptom Severe” that tastes like Listerine strips and burns like crazy, but seems to get the job done, at least temporarily. I wish they made liquid that could go longer than 4-5 hours (let’s face it, 6 hours never happens, ever, with cold medicine). But I guess I’ll just have to stick with my pill form of the 12-hour variety.
Well, I’m off to curl up under a heating blanket, hopefully that’ll help me feel a little more human (I love being cuddly and warm).
Stay flu-free, everyone!
