It’s been two full weeks and finally –finally!– I’m feeling like my old self.
How debilitating this illness was!
A flu? Strep throat (as I thought originally)? A severe cold?
I was prescribed anti-biotics but they didn’t seem to do much of anything so it was up to the ol’ body to take on this illness with the help of Advil and some cold medicine I had.
The symptoms were plenty of phlegm, bronchial/sinus issues, and, at times, fever.
The first week of the illness was easily the worst, including two days where I literally felt I couldn’t do anything and mostly stayed in bed feeling miserable.
The second week, the recovery week, I felt better but still had coughing fits/phlegm to deal with.
When I started to feel better and took my new car out for a spin, I suddenly realized I had gotten the car and almost immediately got so ill I couldn’t use it. So I got to use it more and more and enjoy it for truly the first time this past week.
Now that I’m feeling much better, its back to the grind.
Time to work on that next novel!
