If It LOOKS Like A Duck…

I’ve been feeling ‘poorly’ for the past week or so.  Not that I don’t usually, having diabetes, neuropathy, arthritis and ‘weight issues’, but even more so.

I’ve been enjoying much of the Summer, taking an early morning swim at the community pool most every other morning before I do the blog thing.  This past week I’ve not felt up to it – chalked it up to increased pain, general malaise and the fact I possess chronic illnesses.

But, another element has been added.  My roomie (who has her own health issues) has been feeling poorly, too, coupled with bouts of gut pain and more recently chills (!)  Now she normally has some other issues which produce excessive warmth (she’s gonna kill me for writing this) so chills usually aren’t in the equation.  Nor is gut pain.

Suddenly, it occurred to me:  The Flu!  I don’t generally get colds and flu, but she does, and this makes perfect sense, especially with both of us having ‘issues’ simultaneously.  I even ran our total symptoms past a friend who is a nurse, and not only did she agree, but thinks she has a mild case, as well.  She had chills last night!

So, guess we ride it out.  I seem to be doing better, and Roomie’s symptoms are subsiding.  Whew!

Perhaps this is what’s wrong with WordPress, lately?

  2. If you can get yer hands on some Elderberry wine, it has purported various do-dads in it that help quickly mitigate Flu. When I get the flu, it is Katy Bar the door and clear a path to the bathroom. It gets bad but I only get it once a year.

    I’ve a bottle with me here and it works in about two-three days. Two glasses a day, I take one in the morning and one at bedtime. It doesn’t hurt to help you sleep either. Good luck

  3. Thanks for everyone’s concern, emails and suggestions. We both seem to be over the worst of it (fingers crossed, knock on wood!)
