Flu


Wednesday, January 23, 2013

All that really needs to be said. About 2 weeks ago, we were traveling, and all the warnings about the flu were on the news. So I was using Airborne, Cold Eeze, Emergen-C all day long. But the conference I was at included buffet meals 3 times per day. I had hand sanitizer, and I also put some at the front of the line. But hardly anyone used it. Was hanging in there till about Wednesday. Then, stuffy head, itchy eyes, sore throat. Followed by sneezing. Then congestion. Maybe a fever - can't be sure. It wasn't until I got home and got some serious rest that I began to feel better.

No exercise for me during the last week - no energy. But, since I could not taste any food, I did lose weight!

Yesterday, an easy swim. Today, a short spin on my recumbent bike. Slowly, I will regain my exercise potential.

My first flu in years and years!!! (and no, I did not take the flu shot). I don't wish this on anyone!

    Oh, how frustrating! It seems like I always get sick when I travel. (I'm the worst traveler!) I do get a flu shot, but even with the flu shot, you can still get the flu. You'll be back in the swing of things in no time!
