Relapse of the F-Word !!

By | 01:38 2 comments

I can’t believe I got the damn FLU ….. AGAIN !!! This is the 2nd time in a space of less than a month. 

When I last mentioned my nasty flu it was on 29th April … I suppose I even know the reasons behind how I got ill the first time around … but this relapse is just not called for .. it’s plain unfair !!

I haven’t been to work since Monday – I’m going crazy at home just suffering from my symptoms.  How on earth am I supposed to function if my body temperature see-saws between 100°-102°F ??

My FaceBook status updates have included :

18th May : had to succumb to the doctors' needle today ... I hate being sick ... makes my brain fuzzy and efficiency levels low =(

flu woman19th May :  really can't think much with 102 fever; a nasty cough; super blocked nose; hot & cold flushes; antibiotics galore ... I just want the damn pain to go away !!!

20th May :  2 injections today; 5 different antibiotics for the next few days; aches & pains all over my body; the inability to eat or drink anything; and a complete relapse of the damn viral throat infection ..... could there be anything else wrong with me ??? ... AND it started raining today !!! =(


I just don’t understand it !!  As you can see – I’ve gotten from bad to worse – with no signs of improvement.   I haven’t been able to eat anything for the last few days – nothing is staying in my stomach.  Not even liquids.  I must have had my face down the toilet bowl at least 25 odd times in the past 48 hours.  Did I mention I had a blood test yesterday where they took out about 2.5 vials of blood ??


I did manage to get some sleep last night though.  Very hot & bothered sleep – but it was sleep nonetheless.  I needed it.  The classic bit is that on Monday night – I took a sleeping tablet that normally would knock one out for about 10-12 hours …. but did that work for me ?? Noooooooo ! I woke up within 2 hours – and then was left with a pounding migraine for another 3 hours – and yes I was back on my  bathroom floor shuffling between the toilet bowl and the wash-basin.


So here I am now – 2 vaccines down for the day; had 3 of my 5 antibiotics (will wait till I am about to pass out before taking the other 2); and a strained neck; a hot water back behind my back rested up against a pillow … trying to call out to my neighbours because my throat obviously has no energy …. flushot-noflu

Please go get a Flu shot if you haven’t already done so .. there’s a nasty virus in the air and really – I don’t want any one of you to feel even 0.05% as miserable as I am feeling !!

All I can do is imagine what you must be going through and it doesn't sound nice at all.

Take care!
