Sick for a day
Every once in a while, maybe once a year, I'll get sick for a day. Flu-lite. All the symptoms of the flu, ie — muscle sore, uti kind of symptoms, feeling like crap, but none of the longevity. When I ran my own business I'd just ignore it, put up with it unless/until it got worse. Or better.
It has been a while since this has happened but night before last I started feeling cold and had painful urination and started feeling that joint soreness that comes with something bad going on. Since I had my middle of the night fever that sent me to the hospital last year I'm a bit more careful about how I feel. Ignoring illness work for me for 60 or so years but apparently it is now a little dangerous to not do something when I feel bad. The good news was I didn't have a temperature. Had that spiked I'd have gone to the 24 hour care joint. I was checking my temp every time I got up but it was stable.
I had a cardiologist appointment or I'd have just gone to bed all day. But rather than cancel I soldiered through, finished, and came back home to an excellent nap during which I started to feel better. By last night I was 90 percent back and this morning I'm fine.
My flu shot was nearly a week ago so I find it hard to believe that had anything to do with it. The reaction to flu shots are not really what I was feeling and happen within a couple of days.
I've got no explanation but am glad it is a transitory event.
