    I feel you.. unfortunately. Had to leave work early today because of this lingering virus. Had it last week and assumed it would be gone.. nope. Lots of thai food, garlic, peppers, emergenC, etc.

    WHatever I have is causing enough mucous buildup in my throat that I can't swallow solid food.

    Flu shots are generally a crap-shoot anyway. Manufacturers make an educated guess of one, among a handful of strains likely to hit. So, if there are five strains, you have a twenty percent chance of avoiding it.

    I'm going to try to head back to work on Thurs. I'll probably work from home for the day just in case I'm still contagious. I can already see how far behind I am and it's scary!

    I'm going to continue being reclusive and washing my hands raw. I know people on both coasts sick as a dog; hopefully it passes by end of March.
