The flu bug bit. Then chomped

i know i've been complaining all over the blogosphere that i have the flu. it stinks. and until i finally bathed today, well nevermind, TMI

i'm torn about going to work tomorrow. i do feel better and don't seem to have a fever anymore, but i was sick for a number of days and could probably use one more day laying low. oh yeah, the hacking cough isn't pleasant either. still, it's a new job and i don't want to keep calling in sick. i really, really, really hope i feel better tomorrow. much better.

i haven't been out of the house since friday. it's pretty isolating. i haven't been to an AA meeting since last Wednesday and missed seeing my sponsor this weekend.

i WILL feel better and everything will be fine. it's just hard to remember when i'm feeling crummy and blue.

thanks for listening. i WILL feel better. can't wait


  1. Knock on wood, I've never had the flu. Sounds awful though. You should take it easy for a few more days. I bet they would rather have you home than at working with a hacking cough! Rest.....

  2. I hope you feel better now. It is just rotten being sick at home. Seems so wasteful and boring.

  3. That's awful, I'm sorry. I know that feeling all too well... You wonder, will I ever feel normal again? Then you forget what normal even felt like, you're so miserable. Get well soon, Doll.

  4. I had the flu last week, and it was awful. I hope you are feeling better soon! I know it is hard to use sick days when it is a new job, but you also need to take care of yourself. Thinking of you.
    Take care:)

  5. Are you feeling any better? I will keep you in my prayers, and thank you for your kindness to me while you are sick.
