Feels like the flu

Monday morning I woke up with a sore throat that came out of nowhere.  Tuesday I started feeling worse, and today I had to take a sick day from work and go to the doctor.  Fortunately I don’t have tonsolitis or strep or anything like that, but its feeling more like a really bad head cold or the flu now.  I have never liked nedles so I never get a flu shot.  I don’t know for certain that its the flu, but after this, I think I will be getting annual flu shots from now on, just to be on the safe side.  I’ve been glues to my couch most of the day and it seems I’m in for at least one more day of feeling really bad.  The doctor gave me an anti-biotic since I had a fever, but I’m not sure if it will really help.  Hopefully I’ll be back up and going soon.  This is really bad timing for me to be sick, but glad its happening 2 weeks before my trip to Jamaica instead of happening right before or during the trip!

Getting old

I had a dermatologist appointment the other day, and we talked a little about some other minor things before I mentioned that the bottoms of my feet are startng to crack and dry out.  He replied and said “yeah, you are getting old”.  I’m really not old, but I look older and feel older.  I guess the days of having my smoothe perfect feet that Liz used to be envious of are about over.
