Battling The Flu Here In Chicago

Only one post today as I’m fighting the flu here in Chicago.

First and foremost, thank you to those readers who’ve sent me “get well” messages. I really appreciate it.

Second, for those readers interested in what I’m battling (not sure if it’s that much-publicized H3N2 flu strain), the first symptom appeared Monday in the form of occasional coughing. By Tuesday, dizziness, a running nose, a sore throat, coughing, body aches, chills, a fever, and fatigue were full-blown. A lot of the above has waned as the hours have gone by Wednesday- except for a slight fever, a runny nose, and the onset today of some real body-wracking sneezes. No nausea or vomiting throughout the whole ordeal though.

Now, I didn’t get a flu shot, I haven’t had the flu since 2009, and the only things I’ve done to “treat” it this time around were rest, liquids, cough syrup, and acetaminophen.

We’ll see how I feel tomorrow. But I suspect I’ll be back on my feet again (although I’ll try and avoid contact with other people for a couple of days still).

I guess I’m pretty lucky, as the local news is reporting a number of Chicagoland residents are heading to hospital emergency rooms for treatment.
