A few weeks ago I caught what I thought was the flu. Not a problem I was letting it run its course, taking meds, and staying away from everyone. Then I felt like I had been run over. Repeatedly ran over, like they had hit and put it in reverse to do it again and again. That morning was the morning I realized that maybe I needed a little extra help.
A trip to the ER resulted in being admitted because of pneumonia. WHAT? So, no worries I could keep working while in the hospital. That is why they have laptops and wifi, right? WRONG!! After a few days of not getting any better and attempting to reach my deadlines the doctor took my laptop away from me as well as my phone. He had my family take them home and not give them back until he released me. This morning none the less.
That, of course, has left me running behind like a crazy woman. We celebrated Christmas this morning when I got home and now I am attempting to get caught up on the little bit of work that I am behind in. I will be caught up before the end of the week though. The reason is I have planned everything out including naps. The doctor said I would still be a bit tired and to rest when I needed to.
My doctor was awesome although I wanted to punch him when he took my stuff away. the truth was that without it I was able to rest more and stress less which allowed by body to heal faster. I didn’t realize just how serious pneumonia could be. I didn’t realize I had it. I thought I had the flu. Flu season is here and if you have symptoms make sure that you go and see you doctor. It could be more than the flu.
