Flu! Flee!

Sometime late Friday night, "allergies" turned into full-blown flu and proceeded to smacking me around like a dragon turtle smacking around a level-one character.

In other words, I'm not quite myself. The good news is that I did get my flu shot this year. The bad news is that there's a strain going around DFW not quite covered by the flu shot. To use the doctor's colorful similes, full-blown flu would have felt like being run over by a truck. The flu shot makes it feel more like I was sideswiped.

Another piece of good news, though, is that I saw the doctor within 48 hours of the flu really hitting. That means I was in time to start a round of Tamiflu and have a good chance of it being effective, limiting the duration of the sickness. Rob's tip for the day: If you think you might have the flu, don't delay. Get to the doctor and ask for Tamiflu ASAP.

Anyway, I'm likely to be posting slowly for a couple of days.

Take care! One of the "benefits" of my medical condition is free annual flu shots so, touch wood, I haven't been stricken for several years!
