The Flu...


I've been lying on the sofa under the red fleece blanket for most of the day, because I've come down with the flu. I'm coughing and sneezing and I have an aching body and I can't be far from a box of tissues. It is very ironic that I should get sick at the end of the winter, because I never get sick (hardly ever) and I certainly wasn't expecting it now when it is nearly springtime. I don't know how I caught this bug, but I'm not happy with it, because I generally feel miserable.

I'm not a very good patient and like to complain, but there's nobody here to complain to. I also like to be made a fuss over, but that's not possible either, so I'm being as nice as I can possibly be to myself and I'm drinking lots of cold drinks and keeping myself warm. The runny nose is the worst, because it leaks pretty much non-stop and I have to have a tissue handy all the time and make sure that Tyke doesn't tear apart the used ones. That's so gross!

I wish I could add a microscopic image of a virus to this post, but I'm too sick to go look for one. Instead I'll add something nice.

Have a good day, be on your guard against those invisible germs!

Ciao,
Nora

Hi Nora. So sorry you're ill. You must be the last to get it - everyone else has already had it this winter. It's strange when you don't go out that much and STILL get it. I thought it was very weird that I got it when my time out of the house was so minimal.

I really hope you've got everything you need and that it doesn't last too long.

Just mollycoddle yourself as much as possible. Hope you dry out soon!

Hope you're feeling much better soon and glad you're taking lots of fluids.

Snowdrops have finally popped up in my garden so hopefully spring is really on the way. We all need some sunshine.

It's the Olympic flu! I last had it in February 2002, and the only thing that saved me was laying on the couch watching Olympic events on TV for an entire week. I escaped that flu this year, though, and only had a bad cold, so I only lay on the couch watching Olympic events on TV for three days. Get well soon - and in the meantime, watch the Olympics broadcast from my beautiful non-snowy home of Vancouver!

I'm sorry you arent' feeling well. I wish you a speedy recovery.

I see, though, you haven't lost your dry sense of humor -- the wish to post an image of a virus, but deciding on the playful kittens instead.

Aww, poor you! Got the stomach bug myself since last night. Sigh.

Hope you feel better soon!
