the diary of the blogger with the flu

Day 1: bed & dead
Day 2: bed & dead
Day 3: bed & doctor
Day 4: couch and begin to feel alive again

So I got the flu. Totally out of the blue. I guess I am a poet now too. OK enough! At any rate, sorry for the lack of posts... I have legit been totally out of commission and bed-ridden. Not to mention having to miss 4 days of work and postpone a 2nd interview....

This all started Monday night when I dropped my friend from NYC at the bus and felt really ill and my head was on fire! We had a great fun weekend and it had to end this way.... with a 101 fever. And it stayed that way, all week, added to that body aches, chills, headache, sore throat, and loss of appetite.

I went to the doctor yesterday- it's the flu and I have to just let it ride... I feel a bit better today- thank god. So here I am. I am totally behind on all the blogs I read (my Google reader says 1000+ unread, heavens), but will try to catch up as I feel better this weekend.

This flu is nearly the same as the one I got last year in Florida in February. Luckily, the flu gods have spared me and gotten me sick BEFORE my trip this year. And with my loss of appetite, I can only think of the great Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada:

"I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight."

Just kidding, I miss eating things besides noodle soup and jello.

Time to join my puppy napping on the couch and You've Got Mail....
thanks for stickin with me!
