This will be short because I don't own a laptop, so I can't recline and write, and sitting at my desk is tricky. I'm trying not to fall out of the chair.
On Sunday, after three weeks of fighting a flu, I announced I was finally over it. I even went and sang in my women's chorus; the first time I could sing since the beginning of December.
Yesterday, as I was in the movie theater with my bestie watching "The Hobbit," I began coughing, and coughing, and coughing.
I'm down for the count again, but this time without any PTO at my job. I don't know how I made it to work, but I did and as long as I sat still, my coughing jags could be managed. I plied myself with cough medicine and oranges and lozanges and ibuprofen and vitamin C. There was more, oh, yes, there was, but I'm incoherant and can't remember right now.
Please guard yourself.
Make sure you cough and sneeze into your elbow.
The rule is use hand santizer three times, then wash your hands for 20 seconds the fourth time.
If you get sick, rest and drink lots of fluids.
Excuse me while I go pour a glass of orange juice. *sniff*
I hope you all have a healthy and happy New Year! :-]
P.S. I did have a flu shot :-[
