It has been a long road to recovery, just for the record, I have not had the flu since 1994. Let that sink in folks, 1994, now 2018, it did me in, not literally, well, yes, literally. I did everything right, I wash my hands, I have antibacterial hand crap, I have Clorox wipes at my desk and yes, I use all of it. I still contracted the flu, and it was not pleasant.
I honestly thought it was a head cold, or sinus infection, when I went to the doctor and the nurse practitioner told me it was the flu you could have knocked me over with the proverbial feather.
I exclaimed, shut the door! She burst out laughing and said no one had ever reacted that way before. They probably won’t after me, I am unique.
Then she said it was too late for tamiflu, which is ok with me, as I don’t know what is in that stuff.
I combated the horrendous mess with oregano oil, tea tree oil, lemon oil, black elderberry stuff and peppermint. I also did the Tylenol for cold and sinus. Lots of liquids, not a lot of food, I wasn’t hungry, which is a great side effect. FYI.
But now, now that I am on the mend I have a giant fever blister on my upper lip.
I always know when the illness has left my body, or stress, because I get a giant fever blister.
I hate those things, with a passion, they are painful and ugly. So very ugly.
I still have a lingering cough as well, not too bad, but it’s there.
Since I have been housebound, I did manager to catch up on several streaming shows I have been wanting to watch. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon, The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu and Stranger Things on Netflix, they are all very good and very different from each other.
I am incredibly eclectic in my television viewing, you might not be, if you are into Sci-Fi, Stranger Things is what you want. If you liked The Hunger Games, The Handmaid’s Tale is for you. Gilmore Girls fans, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the cup of tea you are looking for.
I am now dying to find out what happens next on each of these and their new seasons aren’t out yet!
The most amazing thing happened this morning people, Dean Cain, yes, the real Dean Cain, liked my tweet! Again!
I am one step closer to meeting him, and having him fall madly in love with me and then we get married.
Stop! It could happen! I’m not crazy, my mother had me tested. That is my mantra, once again, I’m not stupid and I know it’s not going to happen, but what if it did. Who would be the crazy one then?
On a happier note, I feel better today than I have in over a week and will be returning to work tomorrow.
I had a party to go to tonight, but I won’t be able to do that and I am not happy about it. I was looking forward to it and even had the perfect pair of boots picked out. Oh well, there is always next time.
As usual, if you have any comments, especially any essential oils that will make the fever blister go away, feel free to leave them here or shoot me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
