The Flu Season & Runaway Semi's


Woke a few days ago feeling weird. Within hours, it felt like I'd been run over by a semi. My symptoms (a quick search revealed) suggested I had the flu.


Now I've had the flu before (and I ain't 'fraid of no stinkin' flu), but this one came fast-n-furious .. a particularly vicious strain.

Most striking was the severe fatigue. Felt like I might not ever have any energy again. Didn't even have enough energy to focus mentally (concentrate).

Also had a wicked-high fever. My body pumped out enough BTU's to supply the industrial energy needs a small, third-world country.

Ate fresh oranges and drank water by the liter. Tried to rest, but that wasn't always possible.

Woke last night drenched. You know that lovely feeling? Nothing quite like waking in the middle of the night to find everything you're wearing clinging to your skin .. cold, damp & clammy and smelling rather funky.
