October, so far, has really sucked a lot.* I’m not trying to whine, just explain why I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like (I have tons of photos, honest).
Let’s see, the week before last I had a 5-day migraine (oh, yes, five whole days of head-splitting pain and flashing auras).
Then the day before yesterday I was informed by Kristin that she and her husband had been diagnosed with having had the H1N1 flu virus last week.
On Monday I was developing a sore throat. Yesterday, the sore throat continued, I had developed a lovely headache, I ached all over (especially my joints), and I ended up taking a 6-hour nap (noon to 6 pm) because I was so tired. I did try and go to work yesterday morning, but ended up feeling so crappy I left (ha, I was ordered out by the Moms In Residence) and came home and crashed.
Today continues with the same symptoms – the sore throat is better (thank you, OJ), the headache is the same, the body aches are 100% worse, and the fatigue is about the same. In fact, I think I will go and take another nap after I post this.
Yeah. September was much better.
*It could be worse, though, and I’m the first to admit it. I don’t have the intestinal problems (or fever!) many flu sufferers have right now. I’m not sure it is H1N1 (and don’t really care), but I’m not going to go to my doctor (and infect more people) to find out. Heck, this isn’t even half as bad as Scarlet Fever was. I just want to get well. Soon, please.
