Ah, famous last words.
My husband got the flu a couple of weeks ago. He was nervous about me being around him and catching it myself, but as I haven't had the flu since I was a kid, and I've had my flu shot, I didn't think there was a chance I would get it. "I don't get the flu," I told him.
Four days after he was fully recovered I felt like something was really wrong. Everything hurt. My eye sockets hurt. My baby toes hurt. I could not figure out what was wrong with myself (seriously...I really had no idea!). Chris came home from work to find me feeling half dead and pronounced that I had the flu.
He ended up being right and I've been confined to bed for ten excruciating days. Thankfully, between Chris and my mom, they've picked up my slack and taken care of everything while I've been out of commission.
I did use my time wisely though. First, I watched every episode of Downton Abbey. My friends Melissa and Lindsey have been telling me for months that I should watch it and that I'd love it...they were SO right! We just got Amazon Prime and seasons 1-4 are free so I flew through them. It's my new favorite show!
After that I moved onto Gilmore Girls but I am struggling to really get into it. Everyone on twitter raves about it and maybe it just takes awhile to get into.
And this girl...well, she hasn't left my side once. When I felt my worst she actually jumped onto my bed (she is not allowed on the bed) to check on me. She has stayed next to me the entire time. It's so sweet!
Today (day 10) I am finally starting to feel better. I'm on my last day of Tamiflu which has helped tremendously, and I'm able to get out of bed and do a few things. But take my advice, and never say, "I don't get the flu." Ha!
