For the first time in nearly a week, I didn't wake up during the night drenched in sweat, feeling like I was in a sauna and suffocating from the heat, so think the fever has (fingers crossed) finally gone. I still feel like I've been run over by a truck though, and all the other symptoms are still there. Got up, showered and dressed this morning, even helped husband prepare veg for dinner....whether I eat much of it later remains to be seen, appetite is still coming and going. It's odd, often I have no appetite at all, then sometimes I'm suddenly ravenous. Going back to bed now, overwhelmingly tired again.
Jill and Joy, to answer your questions - yes we had the flu jabs a month ago. Have had them for years and never had any reactions other than a mild arm ache or feeling a bit tired. I don't think it's a reaction to the jab - too long ago. I do think it's the flu - there are many different strains of flu and each year's vaccine only protects against the 3 or 4 strains the scientists reckon will be most prevalent this year. Well, as far as I'm aware.
Oh Sooze, I've only just caught up with your latest blog posts and feel so sorry that you've been so very unwell. If that is ordinary flu what on earth does covid feel like. You poor, poor soul. At least you did all the right things and are now, hopefully, on the way to recovery. Get well soon. Sending healing thoughts your way xxReplyDelete
So glad you're feeling a bit better. You seem to be over the worst of it. I think you're right about the flu jab, it only protects against the most prevalent types that year. Unluckily for you, you managed to get a strain that wasn't covered! xxReplyDelete
I'm so glad things are on the up but take it easy and, please, don't try to do too much too soon. (((hugs))) xxReplyDelete
Hope this flu goes quickly xReplyDelete
Sounds as if it's on the way out - carry on resting and fluids and hope that sorts itReplyDelete
Be sensible and keep resting, you may be over the worst but it will be a while before you are back to normal. Take care. xxReplyDelete
Sounds like you’ve broken the back of it , Sooze. Keep resting up and drink plenty and hopefully you’ll feel a bit better day by day xxReplyDelete
Hope each day finds you stronger. Hugs. xxReplyDelete
