H1N1 (also known as Swine Flu) is Miserable

I am having a some what better moment and b/c im going crazy lying in bed i had to do something, being quarantined to my home is the pits (as my mom would say).
So I stuck my foot in my mouth and said just 3 days ago "ohhh i dont get sick ESPECIALLY the flu, I cant get the flu". Well that night i woke up and i was miserable and its just getting worse. Spiking high fevers every 4 hours, taking tylenol which doesnt always help, body aches, explosive headache, nausea, coughing, running nose, legs feel like jello, takes me 5 minutes to walk up the stairs and then i feel like i just ran 5 miles. So that's how the last 2 days have been for me. I went to the Dr today and got a wire shoved up my nose that was no fun and then they sent me home with some killer antibiotics, and they really kick your trash. An hour after taking the first pill i was violently puking ( i did read the side effects and sure enough vomiting was on the list). Time and patience will heal me.

i thought this picture was funny, Its titled Swine Flu Victim (Cermet attached by miss piggy!)
