Entry #4,854

It seems that even though I got my flu vaccination in October, that I have the flu. This is the first time I've ever come down with it in a year I got the shot. Anyway, this is also the first time I've really been able to sit up since yesterday afternoon. I just worked on a jigsaw puzzle for about half an hour, and now I'm doing this, and then I'm going that lie down again. I've had a fever for two days now. Last night it went to 100.4˚F, which might not seem too bad if your normal body temperature in 98.6˚F. However, mine is 97.7˚F. I've hardly slept the past two nights.

The weather is rainy, overcast, cold. Currently, it's 43˚F, with the windchill at 36˚F.

I'm really lousy at being sick.

Peace, Resistance, and Compassion,
Aunt Beast

    Rain. Rain. Torrential rain. Thank you, Delta. Another mostly unremarkable day. No afternoon comfort film. GW2, instead. I only get comfort films…
