I had been suffering from a head cold for the best part of a week-the blocked sinuses, violent sneezing, slight aches, headache etc. Enough to make you feel a little sorry for yourself but nothing too bad that you had to bother a doctor or anything. Then last Wednesday I went from head cold to flu in about an hour. Fever, hacking cough that led to constant and scary choking fits, complete insomnia, nausea, stomach issues that I won't give details about...it was horrible.
I spent the Easter weekend in my bed feeling worse than I have since I had the flu when I was 12. On Friday night I was considering going to the hospital I felt so bad. I must have tried every home remedy I can think of, every cold and flu thing the chemist could suggest but nothing was working until on Tuesday I started taking cocodamol and ibuprofen together and today the cough, fever and stuff are all gone. I've just got a blocked nose and fatigue but I'm well on the mend now. The chemist thinks it was the Aussie Flu. Lovely.
Thanks to everyone who left a message on my last post, and I've now been able to answer them. I really appreciate your good wishes. I'm not going to be doing a weekend roundup this week as I didn't post anything but I'll be starting to do my normal posts again starting with Cover Love on Sunday. I'll be starting to visit your blogs again from today and get back into the routine. I've missed soooo many posts so I won't be able to comment on everything I'd like to get to but I'll do what I can. I'm just hoping that April turns out better than March did!!!
