Not to Complain…

But this flu bug is really nasty. I’m in good health and it kicked me on my ass, which is saying something. It knocked me out of work for over a week, placing all my work on hold.

I have been out of it longer than I like and even now I am not 100%. I say again this bug is bad, and yes I had the flu shot but it has proven to be worthless this year.

Not only has this bug proven to be bad but it puts a hold on everything because the only thing one can think about is getting better. Even now I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone, floating between reality and fantasy. Not to mention the weird and strange dreams. It’s a place I don’t like to be and I am working, rather resting a lot to get away from it. And rest is required to leave this land of confusion and haziness.

If you have this thing take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest (if possible) and drink lots of water. I also recommend the orange juice if you can handle it. It helped me a lot, but do what is best for you.

The bottom line, take care of yourself. Consider others and don’t spread this thing. Wash your hands regularly. Cover your mouth when you cough, and don’t hesitate to see a doctor. I went to the emergency room and I’m glad I did as my temp was well over 101, and my normal temp is 97.

Don’t mess with this thing, it can and does kill.
