From where did the expression, under the weather, come? I guess I could look it up, but I don't feel like it because I'm under the weather.
Actually, I've been struggling for 2 weeks now. I hate to say it, but ever since I took the flu shot, I've been, well, SICK. Within 24 hours of the shot, I had a sore throat, followed by massive sinus congestion, and all over body aches and pains.
This was the "regular" immunization, not the H1N1. The sore throat became the sore throat from hell. I did what the doctors say: drank plenty of liquids, took ibuprofen and meds for symptomatic relief. All of that meant I felt as if I were swimming in molasses every day which is why I haven't been blogging much this week, on either blog.
A few days ago, I thought I had it licked. Then yesterday, the cycle started again. Felt like hell last night. Went to bed early. Slept late. Got up this morning totally PO'd at the whole situation. I take allergy meds every day of my life, and I'm a fanatic about hand washing and using Purell after handling public items like shopping carts at the grocery store, etc. I shouldn't get anything. Ever.
Sometimes, will power just won't power through the day when you have the crud.
