So, my new title is Jackie Harmon, pandemic survivor.
Yup, that's right, I had the swine flu. For labor day. Lucky me.
And what's even luckier, I had it while Rob is out of town and had Max all to myself (although my sister took him off my hands for a few hours yesterday).
Want the run-down?
It wasn't bad AT ALL. I have NO IDEA what all the fuss is about, it was by-far the EASIEST flu I've ever had. As long as I had motrin in me, I felt fine. Like, maybe a little tired, but otherwise fine. But the weirdest thing was that I never had the contagious symptoms: I never had a runny nose or sneezed, and I had a SLIGHT fever for all of a couple hours the first day. Like I said, definitely EASY to deal with.
And today, I feel normal again without any motrin so I think it's safe to say I survived. But I will still be quarantined (just in case) and will be taking my temperature constantly just to make sure I'm ok. And maybe we'll venture out tomorrow. (You're supposed to stay away from people 24 hours after your fever breaks and that would've been last night, but I'm being cautious)
And guess what? I STILL have NO IDEA how I got it. I don't know ANYONE who's had it, or even where it's been found. But I guess if any of you get it, I'll be patient zero. Sorry.
