When I woke up this past Thursday with a throat ache, I didn't think much of it. I attributed it to the Wolf Parade concert I'd been to the night before -- maybe all my singing along in combination with breathing in the noxious cigarette fumes had given me a sore throat.
But then on Friday I woke up with a throat ache AND body aches. And I knew this wasn't good. Cigarette smoke had not caused this. And as the day progressed, I only felt worse. I came home from work with a fever of 101 and I've been in bed ever since. The fever and body aches went away by Saturday, but now I have an awful throat ache and congestion.
I knew I should've gotten that flu shot! I chickened out because of the side effects. As soon as I get better, I'm looking into getting that shot.
But for now it's bed rest, chicken soup, and lots and lots of Gatorade. Oh, and Harry Potter, too -- they've been showing all the films on ABC Family this weekend, which has helped distract me from feeling so sick.
