The Flu

That's right folks, I have the flu! I never thought much about the know, you are sick, can't get out of bed, feel bad, yada yada yada. OH. MY. GOD. I have been dying. I can honestly say that I have never been this sick in my entire life. I am not one to vomit. I just never do it. Not including alcohol induced puke, I have thrown up three times in my actual memory.

Once in third grade when I was staying the night with Susan Powell. I blame this one on raw meat. I noticed when I was eating the hamburger that her dad had made us that it was a little pink, but I was not going to mention it. Then, around three in the morning, it hit me. I didn't make it to the bathroom, and I think the horror of that moment prevented me from puking for the next nine years.

As a senior in high school I came down with some bug that brought puking back into my life. I was at M& D's and Barry was there. Yet again, another horrifying experience. When it has been nine years, you forget how terrible it really is!

The last one was not as bad. I was at my house, and my endo had me so sick it made me puke. None of these were anything like what I had to deal with for the last two days. I was up all night, not able to keep anything down. I finally went to the doctor yesterday when I started having blackouts and was not able to stand up straight. They gave me a shot that felt like liquid fire to stop the vomiting, and finally, FINALLY I was able to sleep. I am still sick, and really weak and extremely blah, but I am better than yesterday!

So, here is the point. I am so sorry I missed my post yesterday, but clearly I was not able to sit at the computer. I will try to not let you all down again! Also, for the girl who always needs a silver lining, I am thinking I may have lost some weight with all this sickness...score!


  1. So sorry you are sick. Get well soon! Love you.


  2. Don't you remember Nana's story about how she has never been sicker than the time she had the flu?!
    It does suck very bad-we're thinking about you!

  3. Eww...puking. I hate it too. Another Nana story - I had a stomach flu so bad one time, I passed out at the doctor. I told Nana "Everything is white..." and that was it. Not black, but white. Weird but true. Puking is the pits. Hoping you feel better and we will see you tomorrow!!
