Another rough night. This time it wasn't so funny a tale though. Like I said in the last blog; yesterday morning I came home and slept hard and wanted to sleep in the afternoon too, but didn't. About 7 p.m. last night I started feeling really bad physically. It just came out of nowhere. My throat was raw, my ears hurt, my sinuses stopped up; and then the fun really began. I went to bed at 7:30 but woke up at 11:30 and was shaking so hard that my teeth were chattering. My skin hurt, my muscles and joints were screaming in pain and so was my head.

I thought I had managed to escape the flu that everyone else in the house had already had. Now I've come down with it and I refuse to do anything that isn't sleeping or resting. Even with the medicine I don't feel good but at least I can function. In an hour I have to wake Zach up for school so I have to stay up for a couple of hours. Then I'm going to come home and lie on the couch and watch a movie…I'll probably fall asleep during it but who cares? Luckily for me I've got 4 days to get over this before I have to go to a doctor or any other appointment. I hope that it only lasts a day or two, but I don't think that's likely. Everyone else is still fighting with the end of it.

Forgive me friends if I'm not around much in the next few days. I feel awful and need some serious rest. I just hope my little guy doesn't catch it too.

You know what's stupid? I HAD a flu shot! But it turns out that a different strain became more abundant than what they thought would. I'm thinking tomorrow if I'm still feeling really bad I'm going to go to the doctor, maybe today. I need Tamiflu but if you don't get it in time it doesn't help much, so maybe today would be better after all. We'll see I guess.

I'm really upset with my husband.  He has been a jerk to me all night.  When he gets sick ~ I take care of him.  Same to be said for my son of course.  But when I get sick I'm a nuisance to his sleep.  3 different times I tried to go back to sleep in MY bed, but every time he would poke me or wake me up because I was talking in my sleep or snoring because my sinuses were plugged up.  Nevermind that when he's sick I bring him hot drinks to soothe his throat, rub his back until he falls asleep, make him foods he can eat and all that fun stuff.  Last weekend I was holding a trashcan for him while he was throwing up. Now THAT'S love.  But tonight it was all about him.  I was merely an annoyance to him.  No back rubs, no cuddling when I was freezing, no hot tea with honey to soothe my throat, nothing.  Nope ~ just poked me and said "You're snoring again" and rolled back over.  He actually had the guts to ask me if I was coming back to bed at 5:30 this morning when I went downstairs to get the computer.  Let's just say I was a little harsh in my response.

I'm so tired of people…I don't mean on here, but the ones I deal with everyday because I live with them.  I need a vacation alone for a few days.  Maybe that's just because I feel horrible but I still want to be alone for awhile.  I guess I'll just use my alone time at home to satisfy that craving.  I love them all but they are making me nuts.  I need some space to think sometimes.  I think that's pretty normal ~ to get sick of your family at times. 

I need some coffee, so I'm going to go get some.  I hope everyone has a good day.  Keep thinking Spring and maybe it will happen soon!

    Dear Keya. I agree the flu is misery personified. As for the differences in caretaking between you and your husband, I  like to say that guys do not have a mothering gene. Some guys take issue with mo over that. But I say it anyway; GUYS DO NOT HAVE A MOTHERING (NUTURING) GENE. Wish you a speedy recovery. ((((((HUGS)))))) Mary xx
