Flu Has Come A Visiting

It’s been a long month that turned out to be more stressful than I would have ever thought. Dealing with family politics stressed me out more than it should have. And then I developed a flu. I have not felt this sick in a long time. I prepared for it when I felt it coming on, but it hit hard, fast and complete.

Two days ago I was in bed all day. I could not move. I was weak. I had to drag myself out of bed to use the bathroom and then drag myself back into bed. I had a headache comparable to a spinal tap headache. My back hurt so that I could not fall asleep for more than ten minutes in one position. I was nauseous every time I stood up.

Today my entire right side is congested and it hurts to breathe on the right. I think it is muscular in nature, so that has relieved some worry. I am popping Tylenol at night so I can sleep. That says a lot. I never take Tylenol or any other pain killer, so you know it’s bad.

I had a flu shot. What is the point of me taking this vaccine every year and it does nothing? I had pain in the point of injection for over a week, all for what? To get the flu anyway! Yes, it’s true. I’m actually complaining ….

  1. Feel better! I’m on the fence about flu shots…for this exact reason.


  2. PS, check your links for Blogs I follow for #1 and #17. Are they valid lnks?

      Thanks. I clicked them and they worked … (?)


      1. Does it bring up a valid site? I clicked on it “it says only wordpress.com” and it went to MY blogs I followed’.

        Hum. Maybe just a glitch. Maybe if I log out. Just wanted to let you know regardless.

          That list is actually a widget that is on the site generated by WordPress.com. It just lists all the WordPress blogs that I follow. Coincidentally I went through all of the blogs last night and cleaned out the list from those who have not posted anything in over a year. Thanks for letting me know.

  3. I just logged out and then checked the links. When I click on #1 and #17 it takes me to the wordpress home site. (Where you have to log on, etc.) Just wanted to let you know. I do know the widget and I’m always playing around with mine! 🙂
