crushed by the flu

dear world,

while i’ve dealt with a chronic illness for several years, aside from that i rarely get sick. maybe once a year, i’ll catch a cold or get a fever, but overall i’m ok. when i do catch something though, it’s like being crushed by a hammer of sickness.

i woke up around midnight last night and thought, my tummy hurts. i’ll just go back to sleep. but that didn’t happen. i got crushed by the hammer of the 24 hour flu. ugh.

i couldn’t even pretend like i was going to be able to get the girls up for school. it was horrible. MHM picked up the pieces, got them up, dressed, fed and off to school all while i slept fitfully. it’s times like these that i wonder what i would do if i didn’t have a partner who lived with me. how on earth would i have started the day? who could i have called. my mother is travelling and it has to be a pretty close neighbor to ask a favor like that. as terrible as i felt, at least i didn’t have that worry on top of everything else.

and then by 11am, i was ok. not great, but manageable. now, however, at the end of the day, i am wiped out. as soon as both of them are asleep i’m going to straight to bed.

stupid flu,
