I got the flu. Boo. It might just be a virus, but it mimics a lot of the symptoms on this list.

It isn't a huge deal - except for that cold/flu/viruses can disrupt platelets. I haven't had a bug for awhile - for which I am very thankful. Being sick is no fun.

I think my broth-drinking and nutrition are paying off, though - maybe this bug will just last 3 days instead of a week. It started Saturday. Then was achy and sniffly yesterday. Then had a fever and chills through the night. Today I feel like ick - but the aches are less severe than yesterday and overnight.

I'll keep drinking my broth, Orange Juice, and water! Hopefully back to work tomorrow. Until then....lots of naps.

Hope you've avoided the flu this year!

  1. How do you know it is the flu? Either way, whether it is the flu or a virus it is never fun to be sick and under the weather. I am so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. It is very smart that you are making a strong effort to stay hydrated with the broth and the juice though.
