I have the flu.

I was gonna blog about it, but updating my Facebook status sapped all of my energy. Still, I'm trying.

Basically, I think I picked it up from this kid who was the only one that I saw visibly sick in Florida. He looked like death and should not have been out of his hotel room, and he was in the same restaurant as us. Of course, there were an awful lot of coughs on the plane, too, so who knows.

Yes, I think it's H1N1, but that's only because I already had a seasonal flu shot in September and because my understanding is that H1N1 is the only flu going around right now.

No, I don't intend to go to the doctor unless I get a lot worse. My doc is in Owings Mills, and I just don't feel like going down there. I'm not in the high risk category, and I feel like going down there is only going to potentially make others sick and not do that much for me. Todd's boss also had H1N1 and recovered ok after a few days.

It started with a cough, and I came home from work yesterday and took my temperature. 98.9. I decided that wasn't a fever, and I was just a hypochondriac and I got on the treadmill. 2 miles later, I was feeling a lot worse and stopped. After the treadmill, my temp was 99.5. Middle of the night, it got up to 100.0. Today, it's gotten as high as 100.2, but not much higher. I have a wicked bad sore throat and I'm amazingly, horrifically tired. So tired that I didn't have the energy to stay awake to watch the Ellen show, and so tired that I couldn't get up for Oprah.

Todd's not sick, which is good, but it seems like he probably will get it. We'll see. The Bug has been awesome, he slept with me all last night and today. Of course, I think he is just excited that I am warmer than usual.

Bleh. So tired... I'm going to try to eat. Todd went out and got me chicken & stars soup. :)

Hope you feel better soon. Sounds like you are doing exactly the right things. Just if you have any sudden trouble catching your breath or chest pressure or anything like that, go to the ER immediately.
