Tuesday morning I had some errands to run, and then I headed from there over to the mall to do some Christmas shopping. It was a good day and I was feeling fine.
I got home about 1pm, had some lunch and returned a few phone calls. Suddenly about 2pm, and it was suddenly, I started feeling sick. It came on that fast. By 5:30 when Den got home from work I was achy and chilled. Even my fingers hurt. I knew I had a fever but didn't want to admit it. Den felt my forehead and said, "You are warm!" I didn't even want Dennis talking to me. I just wanted to go to bed.
So by 7pm I was in my jammies and in bed. Very strange for me, even when I'm sick. I stayed there and tossed and turned and could not get comfortable and feel well no matter what I did.
I did not eat anything, didn't take any fever reducers, just some water. And my 2 friends: Beta Glucan and Oscillococcinum
I started taking them as soon as I felt symptoms at 2pm.
I never could go to sleep. But around midnight I started feeling better and then by 1am I was totally well. The fever left, the chills, the achy body. It all was gone and I was fine. I slept great after that and woke up hungry.
Did I have an 11 hour flu?
Was it just a fluke?
Or did my 2 faithful friends help me like they have in the past?
I don't know.
But if it happens again, I'll reach for these same friends.
