The Disease Seige...Day 2

I'm home again, but at least Matt was home this morning to get the kids out to school and daycare.

I feel terrible, but the guilt of not being at work is worse. I know that I can't go. I know that they don't want me there spreading my plague, but I can't help but feel bad that I'm not contributing.

I called the doctor, he wasn't there today, but I got the Nurse Practitioner. She is very nice and told me that 95% of the people that they are seeing have the exact symptoms that I have. So, because I'm not elderly or have auto-immune deficiency, she doesn't need to see me. It's viral and there is not much she can do except let it run it's course. She suggested Tylenol for the fever, aches and pains, and to come in if I'm not feeling better in a couple of days.

I'm happy with that, I hate going to the doctor, I would much rather stay in my pajamas and watch movies all day.

Girl it's the flu...and it's awful...imagine waking up christmas Eve and feeling like this...and not being able to get out of bed. I had the flu last year and it was the worst. I ached and was sick to my head, fever and I just wanted to get better...I got out of bed long enough to help the kids open their gifts and back to bed; no Christmas roast for me and I smelled it all the way up in my room. I have been battling this sickness of a cold since Thanksgiving I have so much congestion and I can't wait to get rid of it; great news is my body doesn't hurt...just my head!

Get better soon; look on the bright side you will be better soon!

And stay away from the kids and your hubby so they don't get it!
