I think I am poking my head out of my shell of denial. I'm fairly certain I have the flu. DAMNIT! It can on very suddenly (which apparently is common with the flu). I have all the symptoms, with the exception of the stomach-related issues. No vomiting or diarrhea for me thank goodness! Only a dry cough that violently shakes my brain each time I cough, a killer headache, minor ear ache (headache side affect? ear infection also? ugh.), achy/sore back/shoulders/neck, and a fever.
Since I cannot sleep anymore, I'm back to BOTB to pass the time and avoid bad daytime television.
This afternoon - the doctor.
