I've been sick quite a few times over the past two years, but this is definitely the worst I've felt. Day 8 of the flu! Friday and Saturday were shocking. My whole body hurt. I was shivering violently, then sweating profusely, couldn't eat, couldn't breathe properly, kept coughing, and felt lethargic. Duncan took me to the hospital on Saturday afternoon to see if there was anything they could do. But unfortunately pregnancy rules out taking the usual drugs that give some relief.
Now the symptoms are finally starting to ease. I can actually get out of bed and eat a little bit (and type a blog post). However, returning to work still seems like a long way off. In many ways, the recovery is as bad as the flu itself. Getting back on my feet will take a while. My immune system is so low at the moment.
