OK, the end of the week is here. I was given today off from an arrangement with my employer because I worked last weekend. So I am fairly happy, but I manage to catch some sort of flu-bug that really griped me this morning.
I woke up around 5:00am with the worse sore throat I have had in years. I immediately started drinking water like crazy, hoping to at least slow it down. Then I took some headache pills and tried to go back to sleep. I slept for about three hours before the pain was just too much, and I moved into the living room where I became a couchpotato for the morning until noon.
Right now, my throat is seemingly getting better, but it is still very sore.
As for the rest of my body, well, I feel like I got hit by a garbage truck. The great news is, I feel myself getting better. I still have the rest of the weekend to recuperate from this, so that is a plus. And, I did not technically miss any work, which makes me feel great about the timing of all of this, although it is now on my time – if you want to think of this in terms of bad timing.
There is nothing worse than having flu, than having it in the middle of summer. It is hot, sunny and everyone is outside having a great time. Here I am, trapped inside with the germ coursing through my body. The world is a cruel cruel place indeed.
