So this happened last Friday. I posted my Get Stuff Done update Friday morning and happily went to school, anticipating a great Friday, as usual.
By lunchtime, I felt like I had been hit by a bus and backed over and hit again. I split my kids to the other teachers for the last 30 minutes of the day and went to the dr. Official diagnosis: Flu, sinus infection, and ear infection on one side. There was talk about maybe going on to the hospital based on the fluid in my lungs and the really high numbers of complications in those with secondary infections. I managed to beg off doing that because nobody has time for that.
This is what I’ve been doing for 3 days: Wake up, hot steam shower to cough up nasty stuff, seclude myself in the guest room with Vicks and oils diffusing, hot scalding lemon honey tea to help break up stuff, shower again, grab an hour or two sleep. Repeat entire process over.
See y’all on the other side. It hurts to open my eyes or contemplate being a functional adult.
