I Am Sick

Just  a quick note to
tell you that I am sick.
Not sure if it is the flu.
or not...
fever, chills, terrible headache...
etc..
I never get sick like this.
I have never had the flu
and I have some 
auto-immune problems
that makes this 
"not a good thing".

I will be back as soon
as I can find my 
sense of humor.

Have a good day- 
xo Diana

Sounds like the flu to me...ugh! I know your pain. Prayers your way. Drinks lots of fluids and get rest!!! xo

Maria Elena said...

Diana, they said this year the flu outbreak is very high in numbers, so I bet you have the flu. There is a new medicine to help you with it, but the doctor told me last year you have to start taking it during the first 24 hours of getting the symptoms. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Susan said...

Diana the flu is really terrible this year. And if you have any other medical complications it just adds to the intensity.
I have had it once already this year. My doctor told me that the kind of flu going around the Tama Flu shot will not help.

Sherry said...

Keeping you in my prayers! I had it for 2 weeks. My advice is to sleep all you can. (((Hugs)))

Japolina said...

So sorry to hear that you are not feeling well! I hope it's a short viral visit. I have heard good things about Tamiflu, if administered within the first 24 hours. (Maria Elena gave good advice.) If you haven't called your Doc...you probably should!
You are in my thoughts and prayers!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

I am so sorry to hear this! Please get to the Dr. quick ans see if you can get the Tamiflu. I came down with the flu on Christmas eve. I had the exact same symptoms you are describing. I was able to get to the Dr. the the day after Christmas and get some meds and it really helped even though I didn't like taking it. So many people in our area are getting the flu, it is very widespread this year. It was the chills that really clued me in that this was something to go to the dr. for. Please go!!! I will pray for a speedy recovery for you too!

Lucille said...

Diana, I know some people will laugh at me for writing this but it works. It worked for me and my sister tried it when her husband had the flu a few weeks ago and he said that it worked. It will help you get back on your feet quicker. Of course, you will need to take also whatever medication your doctor prescribes. It's very simple.

Take an onion and cut off both ends. Don't remove the pill. Then put the onion in an empty jar or a small bowl. Then deposit the jar on your night table. As you sleep, the onion will take into itself the germs of your flu.

I have been very ill recently with a flu virus and I tried this. Now, I panic whenever I get a chest cold because three years ago, a cold I had damaged my right lung badly. It created a chronic condition. So, I need to be careful with that.

Anyways, along with the flu virus, I had a bad chest cold. That night, when I first tried the onion thing, I was coughing and it was deep in my chest. The next morning, I awoke and I was worse. I had trouble getting my head off the pillow. But, you know what, the cold was gone from the chest and was higher. When I coughed, it was disengaged and was more in the throat area. I knew it was the onion that had done this. I was still ill though and I kept a fresh onion with me all day on the dining room table which is where I spent most of my days doing this and that.

I'm telling you, Diana, you try this with the onion. If you have to stay in bed today, get yourself an onion. Of course, you will smell the onion, but it won't kill you and after a while, you won't smell it anymore. You will become used to it.

Take care, dear Diana, and please try this.

Love you very much, dear little friend! xo

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Feel better soon, Diana! It sounds like the flu. I have only had the flu once {knock wood} many years ago. It was not a good time as my husband had it at the same time and we were trying to take care of each other.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Take care Diana, from what you say I think you have the flu! I'd try the onion what do you have to lose? I got a flu shot Saturday and my arm is still a bit sore.
Saying prayers for you my friend!

Hope Filled Living said...

Sweet Diana,
I will be praying for you today. The flu is so yucky. yikes. That's most likely what you have, cuz it's going around. Since you don't usually get sick, your immune system is just working hard at fighting it off. Thinking of you.
xoxo.

Teresa said...

I am so sorry that you are sick. I also had an auto immune disease. I had Guillian Barre' so I can't get a flu shot. Well THEY (CCD) say I can, but I won't take the chance. It seems like I am the one at work that doesn't get the flu. Probably jinxed that now! But I have to wear a mask until they feel like the flu has died down. I have been wearing one since early NOV. I work in a hospital. Last year I wore it for a total of 3 weeks. This year as you know the flu is terrible.
I hope you feel a lot better soon.
(sorry my comments always seem to go on and on).

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh, sweet pea, I'm so sorry to hear this. With the fever I would say it's the flu and it really is going around (as if that will make you feel better). I have a bad cold but it's not enough to keep me in bed so I really feel bad for you. I hope you get to s doctor if it lasts more than 3 days. And drink lots of juice. Smart Water is good, too. All the electrolytes in Gatorade but no sugar.

XO,
Jane
