On Monday, I woke up with a slight irritation in my throat. I thought I might have slept with my mouth open as I sometimes do when my nose gets plugged from all the Arizona dust.
As the day progressed, I started to feel worse. The next day, I went into work. I felt bad, but not bad enough and I could isolate myself in my office as not to infect others. By Wednesday morning, I was immobile. My hair hurt. Sore throat, chills, headache but no coughing or sneezing. I’m sure I was just bubbling with an infectious aura. I stayed home.
I’m starting to feel better but I still lack energy (as illustrated by Parker Kitty in the photo).
I was all ready to hit the world this week. A new year. Holidays are over. Back to work! Go! Go! Go! Then I crashed.
The key–for me at least–to getting over something fast is NyQuil induced comas. Stay in bed and sleep as much as you can. Speaking of sleep, that sounds like a great idea.
