Is it the flu?

It is 6:00 p.m. and I haven't been awake for very long. I think that I might have the flu. My whole body hurts and my throat is very sore. I've had a sore throat for a couple of days but this morning when I woke up I could barely even swallow. My head hurts and I have a low grade temperature. I called the ER and they said that it was probably the flu and not to come up there because they were overcrowded with people with the flu. They said to stay home and not go to work or around other people. The flu is really going around here in my town. My grandson is sick also. I stayed home from work today and took medicines and slept all day long! I can't believe that I slept this long... I decided to check my blog and realized that I haven't posted since Monday. I hope that I feel better soon.

Dear Lee Laurie,Saying prayers for you that you will feel better real soon! My son had a touch of something similar last week.
This flu bug is scary! You take care & I hope you can get some healing rest.

If it is the flu, the very best thing you can do is sleep. And not feel guilty about how much you sleep. Once the flu is over, you can be busy again. Your body sleeps because it needs that time to help you recover. (I learned a long time ago that the best medicine is sleep.)

Please take good care of yourself, Lee Laurie. This flu is terrible, so rest & do as you are advised ... the body lets you know what it needs. Hugs, TTFN ~ Marydon

Drat. I had the flu the last two years in a row, but before that I hadn't had it in years. I'm hoping the little bug passes me by this year. Take care and I hope you feel better soon.
