It's been almost a week since I got slapped flat with this flu bug, and there's still no end in sight.......tonight I feel slightly better than I have, but I still need about 18 hours of sleep a day, I'm still full of congestion, and I have very little memory of the past few days (although I think the Phenergan/codeine cough syrup may have at least something to do with that). I'm dehydrated, I'm not eating, my throat is sore, my eyes ache, I can't hear out of my right ear........well, I'm just a mess!
I am of course assuming that this flu virus is different from the one I was vaccinated against last fall........but how long is this crap supposed to go on?? I've already missed 3 days of work, luckily I have 4 days off now in which to recuperate, but I don't know how to deal with things that don't go away within a few days. Does anyone know how much longer it will be before I feel like a human being again?
I HATE BEING SICK!!
