I got the flu last Friday night. It's been two years from the last time it made a pass through my house and I really don't remember it being this bad. I woke up at about 2:30 in the morning and .......well let's just say I had an absolutely miserable night. I probably managed to get maybe an hour of sleep from about 3am on. Saturday I tried to relax and take a few naps but that didn't work out as well as I'd hoped. I could not sit still for longer than 20 minutes. My mouth, throat, stomach, intestines, liver, kidneys, and everything else related to the digestive system felt like they were on fire. I choked down 4 pieces of toast by 8 that night and that was about my limit.

Now five days later, it's working itself into my lungs, nose, and ear. My stomach is still sensitive enough that I'm still having trouble eating and as a result, I'm getting MEGA acid reflux. the flu must die. Someone in this world must kill it. GO GET THE FLU SHOT - you do not want this.

You know what's ironic? When you commit to your New Years resolution and try to live a healthier life with more exercise, better food choices, and one less bad habit.....and then you get sick, twice, in three months.....both times worse than you've ever had it.......

makes you seriously think about going back to eating pizza, tacos, and burgers.
