After effects of sickness!

I know I've been talking a lot about my sickness the last couple of days, I promise that this will be my last discussion on that! I feel better now after being sick for a few days, and I was wondering how you all deal with the after effects of the flu! I have cracked nose and I still feel like I am going to be really cold if I go outside. I need to use moisturizing cream on my nose all the time because it feels dry and looks cracked. My feet hurt a bit and I still feel sleepy although I am at recovery. I am happy that I have a whole weekend ahead to rest and get back to normal! Do you get symptoms like dry nose and feeling sleepy after sickness?

I am glad that you are feeling much better. The weakness is still apparent after a flu and you should not be pushing yourself to work like your normal days as of yet. Do take your much needed rest for a day or two, then you'd be feeling all brand new again! I have not had any of those dry nose. Just the weakness and light-headedness.

I guess we just really have to wait until our body's back to normal. Flu is viral in nature and if there's no complication, the virus will die in a week's time. But during those days, our body sort of fought off that virus, and that's why it got tired. Depending on how healthy we are, it'll just take a day or two for us to be back to our normal selves.

I think it takes around the same time for me as well. But during those couple of days we have to be careful and avoid going out in the cold or do exhausting activities because we might get sick again!

I know that the last time I had stomach flu, it took a few weeks for me to get all my strength back. I was sick for 4 or 5 days with it and the first day that I felt halfway human again, I ran some errands. I tell you what!! By the time I got back home I was exhausted!!

I understand what you mean! I went to the workplace today but I couldn't go through the day so I took some work for home! It is normal because our body fights the flu and then we are weak and exhausted, and we just need to gain our strength back!
