I have been faithfully reading and try to reply but, ladies, I have the flu. It is a nasty nasty bug and it can leave quickly and quietly NOW. Monday I noticed I had a new sort of cough.. it was HARD and hurt and wasn't the cough I had just gotten over which was residual from my sinus infection. Tuesday I took my kiddo to dance and came home and started shivering! Took my temp - 100.8. Hmm... better send the 3 mos old home that I watch! Took Tylenol and off came my clothes as I sweated it out. It got to 101.4 before I sweat it out. I went to bed early and woke up at 2 am moaning and shivering. The hubby grabbed the thermometer, tylenol and a water for me and yup... 102.0. Took the pills and couldn't fall back asleep until I sweated it out again which happened rather quickly.
Called my PCP today and they diagnosed me over the phone... flu. They called me in a prescription of Tamiflu and I've started that today. Just finished sweating out my fever for the third time and had to change my shirt because it was soaked. It's a good feeling but MAN it sucks at the same time.
So hang in there while I recover. I'm still reading. Don't think poorly of me for not commenting very much. I'm mostly just vegging on Facebook or watching a lot of tv. I bet I'll lose some weight out of this, lol. Ever the optimist.
