Still Sick After All This Time

It crept in slowly last Sunday night, and has yet to leave. Who knew colds could last so long? Or is this some sort of flu? I'm not sure; all I can say is that I've been feeling nasty for five full days now, which, in my opinion, borders on ridiculous.

But the fact that I feel well enough to write a blog post now says something. Specifically, it says, "You are getting better! This will not last forever!" Phew! I was beginning to wonder.

Yesterday it got to the point where I just couldn't take it any longer. For three whole days I had stayed home from work, and I'd be darned if I was going to spend another full day on the sofa! Believing I felt better, I did manage to work for four and a half hours... and at that point I could not wait to get back to the sofa again. So I stayed home today. It takes baby steps. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

I was sick with that flu/cold thing for 2-3 weeks in February. Take it easy, lots of fluids, all the usual stuff. Unfortunately, I had to just let it run its course. I hope you feel better soon!

That's a nasty bug. Take care of yourself. Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for the well wishes! Yep, I'm still sick today. But two to three weeks? Man, Camille, that sounds horrible!
