Last Saturday it hit me.
Like a ton of bricks dropped on my body.
Not a Fibro Flare,
but the dreaded Flu.
The "run a temperture of 101 degrees,
shivering in bed, dizzy"
and well, you have been there, too!
So you understand!
I just kept muttering to myself on how
I couldn't believe this!
I was having a great week.
Really feeling good.
And then, Wham!
I thought I was on the upswing this past Monday.
But, no. It was just a little tease.
The Flu is like that.
I am hoping that today is
"my upswing" day!
So I can back to feeling like
Christopher Robin and taking my morning
walks with all the critters!
What are your "go-to's" when the Flu invades your life?
What home remedies do use?
What food always makes you feel better?
I have been feasting on cherry jello
and Constant Comment tea!
So while I eat my jello and sip my tea,
I will let you entertain me with your comments!
p.s Yes, I got a Flu shot last Fall!
Here is the CDC's take on why we still get it.
"The flu shot is meant to protect you from the most common strains of virus that can cause the flu.
The companies who make the flu shot rely on the previous year's flu cases to judge what types to include in this year's shot.
Unfortunately, it can't protect you from ALL the viruses that can cause the flu but it does seem to lessen the severity of the flu if you still get it."
