I’m certain I see the tunnel now. And I know there is a light at its end.
I woke today feeling like you feel after you’ve had the flu: worn out. It is actually a good feeling though. So far, today has been free of body aches, headaches and no fever symptoms either. It will be tomorrow morning, to make sure I’m 24+ hours fever-free, before I know I’m actually over it.
I am forgoing any couch syrup or other cold meds so I can get an accurate feel for well-or-not. That was the doctor’s instruction.
God willing, I’ll actually be able to leave the house some tomorrow! And if I’m well I’ll not have to ‘beg out’ on my Sunday School obligation this week, like I had to for last night’s service.
Yes, I feel like there actually may be a tunnel out there, coming into view, that may have a light at its end. Perhaps I’m about to round the proverbial corner on beating this flu? I think may be!
The last two nights I have actually slept pretty well. My headache is intermittent now, only flaring after reading, watching the TV or looking at the computer screen for what my body decides is “too long”. The pesky cough and chills still reside though. I am glad to report the cough is much less intense and more sporadic now.
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.
