I Been Illin'

Rule #1: If you make it through winter without being sick, don’t ever mention it aloud. Because the flu bug WILL find you if you do.

After a remarkably long-standing streak of good health (save a touch of a cold now and then, which doesn’t really count), I came down with the flu this weekend. And it was ugly. I can’t even remember the last time I threw up – I didn’t even throw up when I was pregnant. But I had a heck of a refresher course on Sunday!

I could barely even concentrate in church I felt so weird. I mean I was on the verge of passing out. On the drive home I started to feel really oogy, and then early afternoon it hit. You know those barf sessions where you’re in heaving convulsions, like a bronco in a rodeo, long after your guts are empty – the ones that make tears stream down your face and have you shaking like a leaf for 10 minutes after? That’s what I’m talking about.

Oy vey.

Yesterday I was able to keep food down but felt as if I’d been thrown down a rocky embankment. I was so achy, especially my back, that it was a chore to move.

Today I’m much better, thank you for asking. But now I’m buried. But since I haven’t posted in a while and may not be able to for another few days, I just wanted to say hi.


Until next time … ~

Hey Clew -
Sorry sistah! Sounds sort of like what happened to me! Only I had it as part of pneumonia. Ugh, the throwing up is the worst!!!! My poor little guy started to cry and asked if I was "dying" because he'd never seen me like that before.

Take care of yourself!!!!
PS - this is rebecca but for some reason it's not acknowledging me!!!

Sounds like a few people from our corner of the blog universe have experienced recently what you just had. Keep it away from me.

I'm glad you're feeling better.

So sorry to hear you were ill this weekend. Last year I had some sort of nasty spell. I can still remember it well.

Glad that you are feeling some better.
