Knife Man

What awful, awful timing :(

So I have a lot to do to get ready for my impending move to London. Anything which interferes with that is a Bad Thing. So here's what's interfering.

This morning, I woke up and my lungs felt rather tight and my voice was a tad raw, kind of like I had been smoking all night long. I wasn't, but at lunch time, I went down to Boots and bought some nicotine patches. I am, as usual, sick of smoking.

I went back to work and immediately put one of my patches on and gave my smokes to another programmer. About half an hour later, I felt like I could hardly move. I've worn patches before and these appear to be the same thing, but I figured I'd just work through it, even sending an email to my boss letting him know what was going on.

I got home tonight, ate a bit of dinner and now at 7:30 PM, I'm already in bed. As soon as I took of my clothes and crawled under the covers, I got hit with a massive shivering fit and my body aches all over. I don't think it's the patch. I think it's the flu.

  • Current Mood: sick sick
lousy, lousy flu...
Well, there's only one thing to do... Take care of yourself & fight that flu off... Good luck.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, hopefully it'll just be one of those mild bugs.
I know pretty well what you're feeling... I just woke up this morning feeling the same way. I'm hoping it's not the flu, but I'm definitely sick with something going on with my lungs and sinuses.

Hope you feel better soon.
That totally -sucks-... and I completely understand. I too am working to keep the bugs at bay, too many life changes coming up to deal with being sick on top of it all.

You need some nice spicy salsa to knock out those bugs.
I'm really sorry to hear that ... you need paracetamol, rest & lots of orange juice
It's easier to give you a mental hug and kiss. No chance of germs.

Get well soon.
