Flu season

Yes it is the time of the year when the flu viruses love running around and competing in hitting as many as possible down with it.

My son was down with a terrible flu about three weeks ago. So I really was not very surprised when I about ten days ago, got my first symptoms.

It all began with a sore throat. It was hard swallowing. Two days later it was time for the sneezing and runny, stuffy nose. By the way, there’s an ad on TV I really dislike. A man is sitting in his office, the room is filled up with used paper tissues. An other version of the ad is the same man sitting in his car which of course is filled with used paper tissues. I find the ad distasteful. The ad’s for Otrivin Nasal Spray. The Otrivin is a very good medication. I use it often and have used it for years. The reason I don’t like the ad is because of the used tissues. Am I strange ? Is that abnormal ? Now I was kind of in the same situation. I had to use hundreds and hundreds and again hundreds of tissues. Every time I had to blow my nose I had the vision of the ad on my mind. I almost was able to feel myself trapped in a room filled with used tissues. Ugh ! Then there was still the coughing ! I was quite sure I would have my ribs cracked. It was hard. It was tiring.

Now, thank goodness, I feel good. I feel the energy coming back. I’m so glad it’s over 🙂 I sincerely hope you people will be lucky not to get the flu.
