I'm about 70% sure it's H1N1 (that's just because about 70% of those tested for the flu last week had H1N1 vs. other versions of the flu). They say the symptoms are about the same, but I've never had an illness knock me on my ass like this one (Except I haven't really gotten the season flu in a few years, so I don't have much to compare it to).
So the purpose of this post is really to complain and to make excuses.
I'm ssssssssssseeeeeeeuuuuuukkkkkkk. :( :( :(
My head hurts. My fever fluctuates between 100.3 and 101.7. I've got chills. My belly hurts if I eat. My nose is stuffy. My cough is deep in my chest and makes every bone in my body ache. Doing anything means I need a nap 10 minutes later. I might be getting an ear infection to top it off.
On the upside, I did invent a fashionable new scarf that doubles as a handkerchief. Mike seems to think that the idea of wearing one's hanky around the neck won't be popular, but it sure is handy. And keeps your neck warm during the chills. Sure, it's a little gross, but when you're sick like this, going to be gross anyways. Mine is made from long scraps of fabric out of my sewing bag- I ran out of actual hankies. I'll spare ya'll a picture!
