Whatever it is that I've got, I still have it....
Sore throat, randomly sore muscles, headache, fatigue, disrupted metabolism, variously feverish or chilled without regard to ambient temperature nor body temperature, body temperature deviating from my normal by cruddy little fractions of a degree.
Apparently this is Going Around, and supposedly it's flu.
Wait. Isn't flu supposed to involve more acute symptoms, and significant fever?
And wasn't this year's flu supposed to be particularly intense?
And... didn't I hear that a cousin's husband, who'd been vaccinated, came down with a really terrible case of canonical flu, and was assured that it would have been even worse sans vaccine?
So, are there multiple strains of flu going around this year? Swine, standard seasonal, and slow-mo seasonal?
Anyway: ugh. Another day of going back to bed for an extra hour or so instead of getting out for morning walkies. Bundled up today because I was getting chilled yesterday, and now I'm feeling overheated. And, as always, there's Work To Be Done. And Kittens To Be Played With.
(Afterthought: I must be slipping. Eight paragraphs with nothing that bothers the spelling checker. Nine now.)
