One Week In

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - APRIL 29:  A cough etiquet...

I am about one week into having the flu now.  Thankfully the symptoms are beginning to ease up a bit now.  The aches and dizziness have lessened, as have the sniffles.  The headache is almost gone now, too.  Unfortunately, the cough is still here, but tempered by the cough syrup my doctor prescribed.  And the chills from the fever are still holding onto me.  The chill/sweat cycle is the worst, for me, at this point I think.  Overall, it has been a fairly miserable week I must admit.  My doctor says that I need to be cough and fever free, without taking any medication, for at least 24 hours before I can go out.  Thursday will be the first possible day for that.  I am cautiously optimistic that I’ll meet those criteria by then.
