Duchess Flu

I have been stricken with the latest viral infection, you've heard about it...I don't need to elaborate. Instead, I would like to offer some advice:
  1. If you aren't feeling well...go to the doctor. Your healthcare provider will determine whether or not your infection is viral, if not you can be treated with antibiotics.
  2. Get your scripts filled, immediately. Stock up on: soup, tea, tissues and OTC cold medicines (I like ones with a sleep aid) also alert close family and friends that you are under the weather.
  3. This flu gives you the worst body aches you can imagine plus sore ribs from coughing...if you don't have a heating one.
In closing, I would just like to say: I now understand how Heath Ledger accidentally overdosed and died. Be careful. When you are miserably sick, you will do anything to steal a few hours of sleep. Follow doses and check with your doctor before mixing drugs. For example: if you take Xanex or Ambien (or the likes) check, check double check with your GP or pharmacist whether or not you can mix those with flu medications, including ones purchased over-the-counter...don't be stupid, you could die.

*cough, cough* Be well *blowing nose*
