Got the Dreaded Flu!!

Got up yesterday morning in deep chills and a 102 degree temperature. My body ached all over and had severe headaches. Stayed in bed all day drinking alot of fluids. I had 3 blankets on me to stay warm although it was 83 degrees outside! My temperature has come down today to a normal range, but still having alot of chills and headaches, so plan to just continue to rest. Hopefully, I will be as good as new in a couple of days. 

Hope to blog again in a few days. Right now to do anything is an effort.

Luv Gary

  1. Yes, get all of the rest you need, I went through it too…..chills and a fever and a migraine for 4 days…the headache…..lots of fluids is good along with the rest. Take care of you 🙂


  2. Oh my gosh it seems to have spread around the entire US. I am so so sorry you have it. I have heard it is so miserable. Hope you recover quickly


  3. As a former EMT, I can tell you that you shouldn’t be covering yourself when you have a fever. I know you’re cold but that just raises your temp even more. Put some cold compresses on pulse points…under your arms and on your groin area. It will be uncomfortable but it will bring the fever down.
    And yes…drink plenty of fluids.
    So sorry Gary. Sending good vibes your way. 🙂


  4. Thanks for the advice Laurel. I’ll rember thst next time. The fe el went back to normal range the very next day and the headache and body pains were gone this Am. Have a little bit of dry cough, but do have Musinex Ext Release and Tessalon Perles on hand if needed. Gary
