I never thought I would love to hear the doctor say I tested positive for the flu.
It started one evening with a very sore throat and a dry cough..
The next morning I woke up with a temp of 102, body aches, congestion and I felt terrible. Our state of Michigan has one of the highest rates of Covid-19. Needless to say I was very scared as I went for a test.
Three hours later the doctor called to say I was negative for Covid-19 but positive for the flu.
Who is thankful for the flu? I am.
But I have had a few miserable days. I am slowly recovering. Fever is gone, coughing spells are fewer and the body aches are gone. But I am exhausted. Doctor said it might take two to three weeks before my strength returns.
Talking to friends who have had Covid-19 I realize my days of misery were so short compared to theirs. Although I may be tired for a while I am not experiencing many of the after effects they are.
So – I’m grateful for the flu.
Stay safe dear readers. Take care of yourself.
