Well, I am not invincible much as I try! I have been down since Valentine’s Day and I got the flu bug, the nasty one. I was a kid when I remembered getting this sick over a flu. And come to think of it, I was perfectly fine up until around 6 PM on Valentine’s Day.  I still managed to come to work last Thursday for half a day since I wasn’t really too well already. And Friday-Saturday went like a blur as I stayed in bed the whole weekend.

I went to the doctor last Sunday and got my swabs and blood checked. Yup, I got the bug and from whom and where, I don’t know.

So, I’ve been confined at home since Thursday afternoon. I can only peek at civilization every now and then when I am awake. But I will be ready to report for work come Thursday. My whole week has been a sleeping marathon while my body (mind, and spirit) takes the much needed time and rest to get fully recuperated. Well, the doctor said the flu bug should be gone in 3 days time as long as I regularly drink the medications she has prescribed.

This Travel bug may not be going anywhere anytime soon with all these crazy bugs floating around. I think I will stay put for the time being.

If you’re traveling or planning to travel right now during the peak of the flu season, you may want to consider having yourself checked and be vaccinated if you like for anti-Influenza just to be safe.
