Yes, I have the dreaded flu. Probably swine flu as there's no other sort about this early in the season.
I'll give you the run-down on all the joyful manifestations. :)
Yesterday morning my throat felt a bit wacky, nothing to signify. It progressed somewhat. I spent the afternoon in bed and felt much improved when I woke at 4. Came downstairs and did soem computer stuff. By 6 I had the classic aches. And fever. Went to bed very early and spent the night tracking my climbing fever. Heart pounding so that the bed seemed to shake. Dizzy. Pain. Thankfully the sore throat was not too bad, I do so hate sore throats. I'm a bit better today but I plan to spend the day in bed and not eat anything.
So: fear not, peeps! The flu is not as bad as it's cracked up to be :)
However I am not looking forward to dealing with homework from culinary class, and biology, and rehearsal rescheduling.
