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 ….
