About a week and a half ago, I came home from work feeling a little tired and "off", and within an hour had that "hit by a truck" feeling and I knew the flu bug had struck. I was a bit put out because I had just come back to SparkPeople three weeks before, and had been eating better and exercising more than I had in a couple of years. Start doing the right thing and wham! the flu bug hits anyway.
But I must say, all those fruits & veggies must have been doing some good, because this turned out to be the mildest, shortest flu I've had. My symptoms were controlled well with pain relievers, I slept well, and within a week the symptoms were gone. My strength returned over the next 3 days, and I am back to normal! I think my immune system handled it all pretty well.
Here's to good health!
