Sick…for nothing!

I was sick last week. Really sick. I think there’s a good chance that it was the H1N1 flu, but I’m not certain of it. I’d like it to have been, but only because I wouldn’t have to line up to get the vaccination. But I’m not certain it was the real deal so I’ll be wanting to get the shot anyway.

I never seriously considered going to have myself checked. My understanding from the media is that the emergency rooms and the clinics are flooded with people experiencing flu-like symptoms and unless you’re having trouble breathing, they just send you home with advice on how to best deal with the flu, which you already know. I certainly did not have any respiratory issues so I figured it would be best to sit tight and not risk both spreading what I had and perhaps catching something else.

Things are significantly better now. The only real effect I’m feeling is extreme fatigue. Here’s hoping this too leaves me soon. What I can tell you for certain is that I’ll be going to work tomorrow. I haven’t been in the office since Tuesday and I’m eager be anywhere but my apartment.
