Of course I have managed to get the flu again and this time it is worse than the last time around. Maybe I never did get properly better, or maybe this is a whole new variety. I called the people at the weekend clinic early this morning and the person I talked to said that it sounded like a typical case of the flu and to take painkillers and drink lots of fluids.
I do follow that advice and take big doses of Ibuprofen, but I am running a fever anyway and I am still quite sore. Actually, everything hurts, including my head, and I am coughing quite a bit. I just slept for a couple of hours and I think that was the best thing to do.
Last night I was in a coma with a fever and I could not make it out of bed. When I finally did, early in the morning, I was so confused that I almost did not know how to make coffee, and I felt like I really needed a cup. I am having one now and I can not say that it is the best cup of coffee I have ever had, but it is reviving me a bit.
My sister is walking Tyke regularly and also brought over more lemonade starter because I drink a lot of lemonade ice cold. Big glasses of it to quench my thirst. I have never been so grateful for ice cubes in my whole life. She also brought over more Ibuprofen because I was going to run out of it. Thank goodness for a sister who lives close by.
There are all kinds of viruses going around and I did not have a flu shot this year, although I could have had one. I wonder now if it would have protected me.
It has worn me out to write this and it took me quite a while. I think I will try to eat something now. Some bouillon sounds good.
