I was feeling something awful last week and then I tested positive for influenza. The first three days post-diagnosis were definitely the worst. After a week, it feels like a couple days have gone by. I still can’t make it all day without a nap, and anything resembling cardio induces hacking and coughing.
It was encouraging to hear my x-rays were clear. Pneumonia scares the crap out of me. Influenza is also scary, but slightly less frightening. Another encouraging fact is that I didn’t end up in the ER or hospital. I think it means I’m getting better overall. I’d like to make some strides this year towards being more healthy.
