The Flu

I've spent the last week in bed or on the couch. I didn't do much, couldn't do much, because every single bone in my body hurt. 

I've had The Flu once before in my life. I didn't expect it to ever be back. Unfortunately, The Flu decided to make another appearance in my life.

The Flu crept in slowly, making me think it was a building migraine attack or maybe a common cold. It took two weeks to build and then wham! It hit me on Saturday and hasn't left yet. Ibuprofen is my best friend right now. 

I've been to the doc twice. He has ordered me not to return to work before next Wednesday. Until then, I am to stay in bed and endure The Flu. Gosh, I hate it!

Hope everybody else is doing okay?


  1. It's sad to hear that the Flu still controls your life. It's big news now in the United States, where people are urged to take vaccine against the Flu. Here across the Atlantic ocean life is okay. I'm now listening to Schalger pop music from Germany and Austria, to songs by Franziska and Yvette. I'm happy taht I wrote a novel set in Germany and discovered so many beautiful songs. Best wishes to be well by Wednesday. Does your dog notice that you are ill? Any reactions? I never had a dog, but wonder if the dog can feel what is going on with your health.

  2. How horrid!! Hope you are feeling better soon.
