My ass is kicked.
I am seldom sick for more than 24 hours. Flu, Cold, etc. (even Covid). If I exceed 24 hours of symptoms it is an anomaly. 48 has happened only once that I cam remember in the past 10 years.
Until Wednesday. That was the start…. around 5 PM…. Wed evening was pretty bad, Wed night was miserable. So was all day Thursday. I did not go to the range on Thursday, as I could see no reason to share this blessing with my fellow range members….
Today is Saturday. I still feel crappy. Joint aches, fever, slight congestion, But the cramps in my back!
Thursday I was running a 101 temp. Now, my “normal” temp is 96.5 – 97. So a 101 is HUGE. And I checked it with two different thermometers. Scared me enough that I called a friend and asked her to check on me via phone in the morning. I never run that hot.
SO today, with Ibuprofen, I feel ok, But a 2 week old kitten could likely kick my ass.
Thing is, I just have no experience being “sick” for more than a day.
