I Hate The Flu

Oh man, I've felt terrible today. Adam's father and sister have been sick with the flu since Saturday. Of course, Adam didn't tell me they were feeling bad, but I figured I would escape the illness.

Oh, how wrong I was.

Fever, aches, shakes, and running to the bathroom every half-hour. Sorry to be gross, but I've been literally expelling nothing but water out of my body since 4am. Turns out it's what they call a norovirus or something, similar to the string of cruise ship flus that hit the industry a few years ago. You have to keep drinking water, only to throw it back up a few minutes later. This obviously makes you very dehydrated, but you don't really want to drink, cuz you know what's gonna happen. Although, water has never tasted so good until today!

This is the worst I've felt in like 10 years. And now Adam is sick too. He made it to work okay, only to come right back home an hour later. Apparently this thing had been hitting his office co-workers as well. He played some WoW, only to find later that in his sick haze he accidentally vendored his Giantstalker's Epaulets. Hopefully he can get them back from a GM.

I haven't eaten yet today, and I haven't taken Tylenol for my fever because I'm afraid I won't be able to keep it down. Truth be told, I am feeling a bit better (otherwise I wouldn't be writing this entry). My fever has gone down slightly, and I haven't been sick since 2:30pm. I've been sleeping on and off, and have watched a lot of Reno 911 and Star Trek episodes (you know I'm not feeling well when I actually decide to willingly watch Voyager and Enterprise).

So if you don't see me in Uru the next few days, now you know what's up. I'm also not looking forward to the possibility that my mother and brother are gonna get it as well, and neither are they.
