I didn't get my flu shot this year...
Feel pain on the left side of my throat.
Take ibuprofen a couple of times a day.
Sorethroat spreads over to the right side of the throat.
Still on Ibuprofen.
On and off low grade fever.
Go to Shana's birthday party and am told I look sallow. I joke about being sallow coz I'm Chinese.
Wake up feeling out of sorts. Body aching.
Go for Church, then to Cindy's for lunch.
Come home, go to bed for a bit.
Wake up with a throat that's killing me.
Use a flashlight and inspect my throat -
Tonsils inflamed with some yucky pus.
Call my mom and she says to use Listerine swabs on my tonsils.
Manage to get dinner together and pick at my food.
Still having low grade fever.
Went to bed at 9pm.
Wake up feeling pretty bad with rapidly rising temperature.
Throat feels like I swallowed razor blades.
I've become an Ibuprofen junkie.
By noon I'm like, totally useless .. UGH.
Go back to bed and am bedridden for the rest of the afternoon and night.
David, my baby darling, goes get me wonton soup and meds as I am a limp noodle with a spiking fever of 101F, sorethroat from hell, chills, bad muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite.
David gets Mexican TV dinner for himself.
Sounds VERY much like the FLU besides yucky tonsillitis!
Wake up periodically from all these body aches and needing acetominophen for the fever and sorethroat.
Feeling a little better, headache less severe,
muscle aches minimal, sore throat still pretty much a plague.
