For the last week or so I have been so sick! There is some kind of intestinal virus going around our neck of the woods, and it hit me hard! The symptoms of this one are nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, stiff muscles, mild headache, and sore throat. I felt fine one minute, and then the next I was so exhausted I could barely move. Last Saturday while I was in the shower is when it got me, and I did not think I was going to be able to get out and get dried off without falling down.
I laid in bed for three days, only getting up to go to the bathroom and get things to drink. I didn’t eat anything at during that time, and have lost 16 pounds since this started. I finally went to the doctor today because when I woke up I had a headache and sore throat, and my ears felt like they were getting infected, and I was afraid I was getting strep.
The doctor said it is something that is going around, and will just have to run its course, which is about seven or eight days. She gave me a prescription for an antibiotic, but told me to hold on to it and not get it filled unless I don’t feel better by Monday. Ugh! I hope none of y’all get this, it is not fun at all.
