MS > Flu

I came down with "the flu" yesterday.  'Tis the season, as there are several viruses running through our school community.  My boss warned me that I may be out 2 days, because one of the toughest teachers known to man was out as long with the exact same viral presentation as myself.

Two days?  Pfft!  Maybe to the 'healthy' person...but I've got ms on my side!

Don't get me wrong, this flu put up a great fight. It threw the major headache, nausea, and aches my way.   I shook from chills, covered myself in 2 giant fleece blankets, and slowly sipped powerade.  I was just passing time...waiting for ms to show up.  Once I lost my legs after about 12hrs of shaking and hurting, I knew it was simply a matter of time.  Sorry, flu.  You brought a spork to a gunfight...

MS is the bouncer in charge of this club. If viruses so choose to enter a body that's used to fighting against itself - daily, hourly, minute-ly? Well then, they get what they deserve.

There's just one problem, however. In place of the headache/chills/nausea, I hear a train bearing down on me in my right ear when I turn my head to the left. I have sunburn across both shoulder blades. And my brain is vibrating on a speed of about 2. Clearly, the bouncer is agitated.

Eh, I've come to work feeling worse :-)

Silly, silly flu...
