The Flu Got Me

Hey everyone! I feel like it has been ages since my last post. On Monday I woke up with a very scratchy throat and felt like I was losing my voice. My husband told me to drink some orange juice and that it would go away. Well, he was wrong. Later that evening I was curled up in a ball with a high fever, shaking with chills, and aches all over my body. I knew it was the flu!

I haven't had the flu in over eight years...and I honestly forgot just how terrible it really can be. Finally on Thursday I went to the doctor. Yep, they confirmed it...TYPE A FLU. So I was then given a prescription for Tamiflu (even though it was a little late to take it the doctor wanted me on it because of my heart condition). When I went to CVS to fill the prescription they told me I got the very last Tamiflu that they had.

I am sooooooooooo happy to say that I finally am feeling almost back to normal. Thank goodness!!! I know the flu is quite an epidemic this year and I really hope none of you are dealing with it. I have a huge phobia of needles...but I think next year I will definitely be first in line to get a flu shot. I don't want the flu any time soon.

Oh no, Diane! So sorry to hear you were fighting the flu, but so glad you are on the mend! It's been going around a bit here in Edinburgh, but not quite as strong as it has been stateside.
Hope you feel 100% better this week!
