Unbelievable; I've got the flu!

THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING. Not right now. Not when I've been given the gift of a day off (Veteran's Day) to work on my school projects. I just returned from the pharmacy where I picked up a prescription for Tamiflu, and I have taken the first pill.

I will try to work on my research paper until I can't hold my head up and then I will get in the bed.

I hope you are all well and keeping up with your assignments.

Hang in there; we are almost to the end of the semester.

  1. Hope you feel better!

  2. Thanks Amy Rose. It gets a little better every day! Lots of my classmates are out with the flu, too. Guess that's why it's called a pandemic, huh?

  3. Oh yes, it can be happening. For years I would get sick over Christmas and at Easter (or shortly thereafter, depending on when it happened on the calendar). My theory is, if you stop running like a maniac, the bugs catch up with you! :)

    Hope you are feeling better. Get lots of rest!!!! Don't overdo the school work, your professors will understand!

  4. Carolyn-
    You know, I felt like I slowed down long enough for those darn bugs to catch up! I hear what you are saying.

    I am at about 88% today and that is a whole lot better than I was a week ago! And you are right; for the most part the profs were very reasonable and kind about the ordeal.

  5. Well,

    I hope you will better now !
    It's naturally, So, it happens to every one.

    I am studying at School of Social Work
