Still sick as a dog. Definitely doesn't match any of the symptoms of the flu, but definitely an amazingly irritating illness: Fever between 100 and 101 all day every day, scratchy throat, weakness, etc.
Trying to get in a half-day's work (can't exactly get my co-workers sick remotely), but that involves actually sitting up and paying attention, which is hard.
Ah, well, it's a good time to be sick -- we're between projects until early April...
Oh, the flu was far more dangerous than whatever-the-heck this is. It's more losing another 2 1/2 days of work to a major illness this year.
This thing is just, "Here, sit at 100.5-101 degrees for a few days, feel weak as a kitten, and get grumpy 'cause there are things that need to get done."
Today I had a big spike in the fever in the afternoon, let it run for a bit and then took 600 mg of ibuprofen (I know, I know, everyone insists that ibuprofen isn't an antifebrile, but it works miracles in our family's genetics). So now I'm feeling far more chipper, and of course that's when you have to be really cautious to take it easy.
So yet another early bedtime for me tonight. I'll lick this thing yet!
I'm no doctor... I mean, I'm definitely a doctor, but might that be how you caught it in the first place...
