Life

Still Alive

…barely 😉

Well that’s an overstatement but boy do I feel down in the dumps.

Monday night just after midnight, I was hit with the flu. It came out of nowhere and I spent the entire night being sick. My ‘bed’ was next to the toilet and it’s a night I’d just like to forget. I spent my Tuesday glued to the couch only getting up to relieve myself of flu symptoms. I think I ate only 10 crackers that day…

Yesterday after a full night’s sleep, I woke up actually feeling ok!  I scrambled up an egg and ate it with 2 pieces of toast.  I proceeded to go to work, but by the time I got there and my breakfast started to digest, I knew I made the wrong decision. By noon, I was on my way home and slept away the afternoon on my comfy couch.

I’m back at work today, but I’m still not better yet.  Breakfast was a bit better today — 1 scrambled egg, 1/2 a banana, 1 toast w/ raspberry jam + 1 toast w/ peanut butter.  Only managed to eat 1/2 my wrap for lunch though. I’ve been sipping gingerale, and ginger tea but still feel blech! 😦  Any tips on what to eat after getting the flu???

We leave for the wedding Tuesday night and I need to be better!!!

Sorry for the less-than-positive post. I just needed to vent. 😦
