Getting Intimate With the Flu Bug

I left work early yesterday because I was feeling very run down. Over the next two hours my state of health declined dramatically. I could barely walk and was coughing continuously which lasted through the night. I typically don’t get the flu. I do pick up other respiratory infections here and there but rarely the flu.

This one is a whopper. I could hardly believe how fast I went down. I’m sure that I speak for everyone, ” I don’t like being sick.” So, I find it challenging to keep my attitude high during those times when I’m physically sick.

I do try really hard though. I watch humorous shows on the television or play some DVDs. I focus on relaxing through each moment and not getting caught up in my symptoms. That’s the hardest for me. I’m getting better though.

This is a short post tonight. I need to go take a nap. :-)

    Sorry to hear it. Rest up. The only good part of being sick is how it makes you appreciate viscerally the simple joy of feeling well. Soon enough.
