Sick Girl

UPDATE: Not the flu - apparently it's strep and possibly mono (AND?? i didn't know you could have strep AND mono, but apparently you can). Anyway i have antibiotics and prescription strength pain meds. And popsicles. And wonderful readers/tweeters. Love y'all...


Hello, dear friends. Please forgive me for my absence in the blogging/twitter world, but i've been plagued with the flu (after one of the funnest weekends of my life - go figure). I've never had the flu before, and i now understand why everyone who has had it says that you basically want to die for 3 - 7 days. Well i'm on day #2, and everytime i think things are getting better, something new comes along (like nausea this morning - FUN). I'm off to the doctor in a bit (although i really don't think i should be driving) to see if i can get ahold of some Tamiflu and confirm that i do NOT have the swine flu. Ugh. I can't even talk about it.

Miss you guys... thx for your sweet, sweet messages. xoxoxoxoxoxo

P.S. As much as i love living alone, it's times like these that i wish my mom was in the same city as me. Her homemade chicken soup would do wonders for me right now...

P.P.S. I've lost 5 lbs in the last 36 hours. This is the best diet ever. AKA i'm STARVING, but everything tastes like mucus. Gross. I know.

Oh, you poor thing! Yes, I understand that it's times like these that you need a momma's TLC. Take care, rest, and drink lots of fluids. Don't worry about us, we'll be here wishing you well!

Feel better! I know what you mean about the banes and boons of solitary life. It's been a while since I've been sick, but I do wish somebody was around to do my dishes...
My prescription:
Garlic, fluids, and lots of tv & books, fluffy puppy to snuggle with and multiple hours of sleep.

Oh no. Sorry to hear that you are feeling ill. I had proper flu once (also after a fab week-end - had been to Lisbon, Portugal), you have my sympathy.

Lots of rest and fluids. Hugs to you as it is hard being away from your family when you are sick.

Get well soon....
