Wishing for a "fluless" world...

Friday, November 16, 2012

I have the flu! :/ Every year the same thing! I always wear warm clothes, I stay inside when it’s cold outside, I stay away from people that have the flu, I get vaccinated every year and most importantly as they say... I wash my hands 100 times a day. But it makes no difference! I still get the flu every year this time! And that’s not it! I also get it at least once more until spring.

I eat right and exercise by the way. I am a 4th year pharmacy student so I know my vitamins. But it looks like my immune system hates the flu virus!

Anyway... So I have the flu. All the symptoms listed in my 800 page pharmacology book... Runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, muscle aches, fever etc. My exams are due in one week but that is not what I’m worried about... I can’t go to the gym. emoticon I started a new gym 1 week ago and for the first time in my life I have a personal trainer and I was doing great. Not being able to go till last Monday makes me feel bad. So I was complaining to myself as usual until I realized... I really wanted to exercise!

I wouldn’t think I would ever feel bad about not being able to exercise before... I wouldn’t because I hated exercise... All sorts of it. But now?

I knew that this day would come one day but I would have never guessed that it would come this soon. GREAT! I can’t wait to get better and head to the gym again. emoticon

    I wish for a fluless world also. I am sorry you are sick. I hope you feel better and get to the gym soon. I always miss my exercise when I cannot do it.

    Good luck on yoru exams while being sick.

    Feel better soon, friend. I am afraid the bugs are too good at changing their stripes for us to stay ahead of them...
    I am lucky in that I (almost) never get flu... I remember having it exactly once and there is no way I could do finals or a project of any kind in that condition. Wake up, void, drink OJ, back in bed for ANOTHER 8 hours. For nearly 2 weeks. I probably lost 20 lbs...at least some good came out of it. LoL

    I sometimes go a year without a cold even. I get the flu shot every year (Dr's orders).
    Good luck.

    Feel better soon! I don't think I'll ever say I want to exercise or miss it! Good for you!
