After dragging around for two weeks feeling like crap, I’m pretty sure I have the flu.
When my eyes got all conjunctivitis-y last week, I figured I just was coming down with a bad cold. Only what cold-like symptoms I had never really got that bad. Instead, every part of my body aches, I swing from chills to sweats, my chest is tight, my head is splitting, and I’m weak as a newborn baby.
Frankly, I’m a mess.
Colds don’t do this to a person. And they certainly don’t drag on for weeks. Not my colds anyway. When I get a cold, I’m over it in a matter of days. But this? Holy moly. It started on February 24th for Pete’s sake.
I’m fairly certain I’ve never had the flu before because I think I’d remember feeling this crappy.
And let me just say for the record, if this is the flu, I’m not a fan.
I thought I felt awful two weeks ago. Now I feel like death. I’m so flushed, dizzy and weak, any minute now I’m going to drop to the ground like Hillary.
While I was writing my previous post about the grieving Warren fans, it was at least ten minutes before I realized I was leaning heavily to the left because I’m too weak to hold myself upright.
Oh, crap. I just noticed I’m doing it again.
I should’ve listened to my brother. He told me to get a flu shot given my compromised immune system. But I didn’t do it because I am, by nature, a born procrastinator. Which explains why I’m 18 months late for my five-year mammogram.
Now, if you’ll excuse me. I have to go lie down before I fall down.
My only message to you today is don’t panic. Not about me and my flu; that’s not what I mean. Don’t panic about the stock market or the Wuhan virus or every other thing the media and the Democrats are using to whip up panic.
Take care of yourself.
Roll with the punches.
And, for the love of heaven, stay off Twitter. Those people are insane.
