So, that 100-degree fever yesterday morning is most probably caused by the flu.
I've never had the flu before, an from my current vantage point, I definitely don't recommend it.
The last time I was this sick was during the exact same time of year- the day after Christmas through the 30th of December, 3 years ago.
The treatment for the flu is "rest and fluids" and I'm finding both difficult, since it's hard to fall asleep when I can't breathe through my nose, and its hard to stay hydrated when nothing will stay down.
Sigh, I should try to go back to sleep.
This is why I shouldn't blog at 2am. I very rarely have anything profound to say so late.
