Then I was young and running lots I developed a sense of my own body, I could feel when something was wrong. I started to get that feeling yesterday afternoon but I tried to ignore it as I don’t really feel like getting sick right now. In the evening I started to feel a slight irritation in the throat and I couldn’t ignore it anymore.
So I took a bit of whisky and went early to bed. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough. I knew I should have had more whisky! Then I woke up this morning it felt like I had a golf ball in my throat and a slight fever. Added to that was a feeling of a big looming headache around the corner.
There is no use going to work feeling like that as I know I wouldn’t be able to concentrate for long, if at all. So I’m spending the day in the sofa, with a blanket and the telly. Hopefully by staying home from work for a day or two in this early phase of the flu it won’t get a chance to develop into anything worse and I’ll be back to normal in no time.
