Flu Tamiflu

Sorry I haven’t been very vocal lately but last week I got hit by a truck. I mean, I got hit by the flu, which hit me like a truck.

I could barely get out of bed on Thursday, and Friday was a bit better. I’ve been pretty much resting since, along with guzzling tea and pounding pills (1 round of Tamiflu, followed by a full round of Azithromycin for a secondary infection). I haven’t been making the long commute into work each day, but I have been working from home this week and then passing out for the night.

Before you even ask, yes I got a flu shot back in October. Apparently this year’s shot really missed its mark, because doctors are seeing loads of patients come in similar to me.

And since I’m such a giving person, I managed to pass the flu on to my lovely wife. I’m so generous, aren’t I? Luckily the kids haven’t been hit with it yet.

I considered doing a giveaway in case anyone else wants some influenza, but then thought that there’s probably all sorts of laws about spreading diseases across state lines.

I just wanted to put up a quick post so you guys didn’t think I’d forgotten about you! I have plenty of writing to catch up on and hope to do so once my body stops housing these unwanted guests.

  1. The flu sucks so bad! That would be one giveaway I would never enter. Get well soon!

  2. I haven’t caught the flu in years and I was an Elementary school teacher for 8 years! I think one thing that has helped is using a Neti pot daily. I tell everyone I know about it. It’s worth a shot.

  3. I had the flu about a month ago, it was horrible! I thought I was gonna die! Then to add more insult to injury I got some weird cold like two weeks later it was horrible!
