Yep, I still have it. I hate to be a bore but I'm still fighting this flu that just won't go away. I'm on my third week of the coughing, sore throat, aches and fatigue.
A few days ago I thought it went away but it's slowly creeping back. I slept most of the day. I just don't have the energy to do much.
I did go out grocery shopping this morning and settled our checkbooks this evening. You know when I'm not updating my blog on a daily basis that I'm sick.
This from an article I read about this strain of the flu on the Internet pertains to me exactly:
I have exactly those symptoms; the cough, followed by sore throat, then fatigue, headache, body ache. I don't think I have a fever but I never take my temperature so I could probably have a slight fever.
I do have trouble breathing. I have to breath through my mouth, especially when I'm sleeping. When I wake up in the morning my mouth is so dry. SO DRY. Never been this dry before.
I got my flu shot this year like I do every year. Apparently it didn't affect this strain of flu.
This is so frustrating to me because usually I just barrel through a cold or flu, that's not happening this year though. Just when I think I'm over the worst, I wake up with a sore throat again. And I know I have a problem when I have a couple of hefty, to the toes sneezes which I had last night.
So hang in there folks, maybe the Old Ron will be back sometime. This is frustrating to say the least.
