The Flu and me

Thursday, February 24, 2011

It hit out of the blue on Monday evening and has been like a freight train on my body. There is no desire to eat and drinking is a chore but to stay hydrated i am drinking tea and water. The upside is I've lost weight, the down side is once i feel better I will eat again and...well we all know when your sick you lose and when you start eating again it comes right back on.

This has given me time to think though as well, lots of time since this is my first day on the computer because it makes me dizzy to be on, my headache is increasing so this will be short. Thinking of when i feel better what I won't eat....frozen yogurt has not entered these lips since I began to feel ill and you know what i don't miss it. I don't have a desire for it, I am hoping that this will be something that I won't say wow i've missed you and eat again.

I noticed last night when i tried to eat supper which consisted of a tablespoon of rice, 3 or 4 peas and 2 bites of chicken, trust me my body said it was more than enough I felt sick after eating it as well. I can't really taste the food at the moment, i am hoping this is a temporary setback. Today I am going to try to have some of the veggie soup i made the other day. My fridge is packed with veggies that this week I am unable to eat, nor the disire to eat, but this will pass, I do hope.

I worked on tuesday and came home early was only there for two hours. I asked my boss if i didn't feel better by 8 if he would let me go home and he said yes. 8 came and he said how ya feeling, i said can i....he said yes....so i haven't been back since, what a hit to the pay check this is going to be. i did go to the doctor's that day though and i am on some medication that i take twice a day.

thats pretty much catching up on me....back later perhaps if i can.

    This sounds like what went through my house a few weeks ago. 6 year old step-kid was sick for a couple of days but it didn't really affect her much. My two daughters caught it really bad. My 9 year old missed a week of school. Both of them could only eat a couple of bites at a time when they were finally able to start eating again. We had to support my 9 year old for a couple of days when she wanted to get up for anything. Even after they were "better" it took them awhile to get their full energy back.

    Take care of yourself and feel better! emoticon

    Sound like you have a pretty bad flu bug. Take care of yourself and get lots of rest and fluids, when I'm feeling yucky I like a green tea with honey. Hope you feel better soon. emoticon emoticon
