never had the flu, till now

Here’s how it all started… Sunday morning I woke up with a tickle in my throat. Wasn’t too worried, just a little cough. Joe and I head out to MOMA for the day and I’m super excited cause we have been talking about going for ages. I’m not all knowledgeable about art so I’m not going to go into a lot of the exhibits, but a lot of photography and it was really fascinating to see. I would say pretty thought provoking items are their at the moment. You should go…

So we’re their for a couple hours and I’m starting to feel really tired and I start to realize that my legs ache. Like I worked out recently (um, no. not even close). And I’m just so tired, exhausted without really having done anything. This really should have been my first clue, but I’m slow with these things.

So Monday I wake up and feel completely awful. To shorten this pathetically sad story I’ll skip to the part where I go to the doctor, she says I probably have the flu and not some bronchial infection that I think I have and shoves a swab up my nostrils. Tuesday the results are in. Influenza A. Could be the Avian flu. Could be H1N1. Clarification on these points were not forthcoming so I went back to bed.

I’ve been housebound for the entire week. Now it’s Friday and I’m finally starting to feel a bit better, except now I have made this mess up here since I’m hiding from our puppy so she’ll stay kenneled during the day (another long story).

my day

It’s probably time to take advantage of the fact that I can walk around for more than 5 minutes and not feel like I’m going to pass out.

On the bright side I’m about 3/4 through with Joe’s scarf. I hope he likes the flu…
