I'd heard about it, I'd read the information sheet, so I knew I should expect a mild form of flu-like symptoms, but the entire long weekend passed with nothing out of the ordinary happening, so I thought maybe it wasn't going to happen, or maybe I'd had such a mild reaction I hadn't noticed it. Yay me.
I was wrong.
Woke up this morning feeling very stuffy in the sinuses, not unusual with my hayfever, but then the headache began. It felt exactly the same as the one I had last year just before the flu sank its talons into me.
And it hung around all day in varying degrees of severity. I spent a good part of the day away from home, it's a long-standing arrangement, I do this thing every Tuesday, and on the way home on the bus I had to hold my head steady along several sections of road the seemed to be more corrugated than usual. The back of my skull recorded every single bump!
I know the cure for this and when I got home I had a hot coffee, stronger than usual, with so much sugar Willie Wonka would have been shocked, then I crawled into bed and slept for almost three hours.
Soup and painkillers for dinner, and now I'm fine. Yay me!
So how was your Tuesday?
