The flu

    I am so not used to being sick.

    I have the flu. Other than copious amounts of knock-out drugs, any advice for getting through this little bit of misery?

    Sleep and general rest. Catch up on your reading.

    Lots of chicken soup and other fluids. Personally, I go with apple juice. About the only time I'll drink juice is when I'm ill.

    Fluids, fluids, fluids. I find orange juice the best.

    Other than that, just try to sleep. Good luck.

    Yeah, thanks. I've been doing fluids all day. Last time I remember getting a virus, it got serious and I dehydrated, so I have been pounding gatorade preemptively all day.

    I had to cancel something today because of it, so I have been either trying to nap (to no avail) or writing and tooling around on here all day. I hate this feeling. Just achy and feverish.

    Oh, and SC, you had to go there, eh? Chicken soup? :)

    Shit! Sorry, momentary brain fart.

    How about the hot veggie soup of your choice?

    Heh. :)

    I have a friend who makes fun of me a constant barrage of , "Go eat some lentils" comments. We talked earlier today and naturally he said, "You know what I like when I am sick? Lentil soup."

    For the record, I don't eat lentils very often. :) Right now, it's pretty much Gatorade. Lots of it.
     
  7. If you have the energy, take a long, hot bath or shower. Sleep with several blankets tonight. Sweat it out.

    Had the flu last year. Worst two weeks in a long, long time. That prompted me to get a flu shot back in October. Just hoping they had the right flu strains in it.

    But the fact you're able to still post is impressive. This will go up there with The Jordan Flu Game in sports lore.

    You think a little flu can slow me down in my quest to catch BYH?

    You're really gonna have to step it up if you want to catch him. Man's a posting savant.

    Maybe if I split some of the longer posts into 50 posts?
