I've had colds before. I've had stomach bugs before. But, I've never had a two for one punch like this.
It started with a cough. Moved on to headache and body aches. Then it got UGLY. Nausea and dizziness. During the meanwhile, all the other symptoms just kept getting worse. Thank goodness the nausea started to wear away, just in time for the runny nose, inner ear congestion, and lower abdominal involvement.
The doctor's office said that I can expect to be really ill for about a week. With the way I have been feeling, I'm beginning to suspect that the high death rate associated with Influenza in the past was partially attributeable to suicide.
