Back from the depths of the flu…

Well, that was pretty awful. I don't know if the H1N1 is really worse than seasonal flu, because I've gotten a flu shot every year for at least the past 10 and haven't had the seasonal flu. But I sure don't remember anything quite this bad. Worst part: The first night, with the fever, chills and aches. I feel fortunate to be done with it in less than a week; I've heard of others suffering longer. Thing that helped the most: Sipping ice water. Constantly. And sleep. So out of it I didn't even turn on the computer for three days! Glad to be returned to health and back in the land of the living; still taking it a bit easy.
