Hit by a loogie

It was bound to happen, sooner or later, but I have caught the change of season loogie. Only it's not what I'd consider a classic flu. It started with a blocked nose, then a runny nose, small headaches arrived, and then all my strength suddenly left me. Consequently I haven't been at the computer beyond paying bills. 

I think I caught the loogie from Sarah, who I think caught it from school. I honestly believed she was putting on a sickie at first, to get out of school, because she didn't have what I consider classic flu symptoms.

Now it's hit me, I realise the insidious nature of it's deceptive infection. It leaves a trail of very minor ailments which culminates in feeling as weak as a baby. I've been sipping lemon balm tea on a regular basis, to help with the sore throat. It seems to clear up my sinus too.

The good news is, I think Sarah is nearly all better and I'm finally seeing light at the end of this tunnel. I still feel like I met a steamroller during my sleep, LOL, but the fog in my head is finally lifting. Sorry for being out of the loop a bit.


  1. I hope you feel better soon Chris! But it's goodsometimes to take time to rest up- hope you did that.

  2. In so many ways I fought being "still", until I realised my body wouldn't tolerate anything else, LOL.
