Flu - I have been so sick

I have never been this sick in my entire life that I can remember! Of course, I have felt horrible in other ways..I HATE to throw up, but this is just a miserable ache and pain. Tuesday morning I woke up with a bad sore throat. I thought nothing of it really except it would be a pain. :) Well, as the day wore on, I got worse and worse. My throat was SO swollen, I could hardly swallow at all. I couldn't eat anything at all, either beecause of it being so swollen and hurting so bad. By around noon, my head and face hurt so bad. By the time I had to pick up my son at 245pm, my whole body was aching and I had a 103 fever! I haven't been to the doc since delivering my daugther almost 3 years ago! LOL I went to the doc (with both kids since my hubby isn't here) and was told I had a sinus infection, a throat infection, pharengitis, and probably the flu. Thankfully, I did not throw up, but I felt horrible...nauseous and miseralbe. I was so dizzy and could barely drive, but I went and got my meds and went home. Thankfully, my kids are wonderful children and I just laid on the couch the rest of the night and dozed in and out of consciousness. I stopped at Burger King on the way home and that was their supper. LOL Anyhow, I now have 2 1/2 days of antibiotics in me and I feel 1000 times better. However, I still have a low fever, my neck still hurts bad and so does my throat. My throat is not very swollen anymore and the nauseousness is gone. Anyhow, I am still very tired and I still feel bad, but I can tell you that I fell 100% compared to the last couple of days. :) Man, I honestly haven't been this sick in so long and as fast as it hit me!!! YUCK. I sure hope none of you get this.

Phesh...what is wrong with your doctor? All you needed was a whopping dose of myLot! Ha! I am so glad that you are feeling better. Isn't it great when your kids can rise to the occassion like that and let you rest without having to worry that they are up to no good?! My children were fortunately always that way. Take good care of yourself, you don't want any relapses ...got to be 100% healthy for the big day....the 14th!! (I just responded to another of your discussions!)

Thank you. I just hope my kids don't get it. Since it was bacterial, I am hoping they don't. They didn't eat or drink after me so I am hoping it's all good. LOL

You must have consumed cold food or drunk some thing which contained bacteria,that caused throat infection.Eat pure and fresh food to prevent this kind of infection.

oh, i hope you don't pass it around the house. That can be just as bad as being sick again a bunch of sick kids. I think it is way worse to get sick as you get older. When i was a kid to throw up was nothing and then i was running around like nothing happened. now it sounds like a monster's in the house and hurts! Ohhh i hate to get sick too.

It is good to fall sick once in a while though it might sound rediculous but just think of it this way......................................... if you dont fall sick for a very long time and you suddenly get this one and be gone forever how is that....................
