Diseased



About a month ago I saw the signs up all over the hospital advertising free flu shots. I made a mental note that I should go to one of the sessions they were holding, because I got the flu last year and it nearly killed me. I have never felt so ill in my life. But then I figured, well, what are the odds of getting it 2 years in a row anyway. So I forgot about it...

I am so weak that tonight I passed out and whacked my eyebrow on the table and am now sporting a fetching bruise, to go with the snot, the barking cough and the myalgia/arthralgia that makes it damn near impossible to sleep. I forgot you're supposed to eat during the day until LH got home. I've slept 20 out of the last 24 hours. I weighed myself tonight and I've lost 2kg today alone. Best diet ever - aside from the whole imminent death thing.

Oh you poor thing, Jenn. If there's anything I can do for you, let me know, ok? (Chicken soup? Chores? Shopping?)

Feel better soon.

Rest up and get better soon!

Oh that sucks!

Is that bunch of cells a picture of the flu?

Hope you feel better soon. It's so hard to do sick properly when you have kids.

Yep Simone that's a polaroid of Influenza herself. Kind of innocuous looking hey!
