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!

  3. Jaime,

    I'm so sorry you're sick!!! I just caught a cold and that has been awful. It's no fun when you know you have responsibilities but physically can't accomplish them. I hope you feel better soon and get back to blogging! :)
