Down w/ Influenza

Last Wednesday, I am feeling really really bad since the phlegm is already starting to build up. Dry cough and runny nose filled my entire respiratory tract. I still do go to the office though because I still can push myself. I don't want to be absent just because I am not feeling well and besides I have lots of work and obligations to accomplish.

Yesterday, I still went to the office because there was a delivery of Targus bags, a 40 feet container of bags that I have to check, reserve and monitor. I felt ok in the morning but then afternoon came and the influenza virus started dominating as I feel my body weakening. At around 6:00pm I am really really really not feeling well, as I sat on my desk waiting for the clock to strike 6:30pm so that I can rush to go home. Upon reaching home, every part of my body is aching already. I am really down with influenza. It is painful, chilly and very uncomfortable.

Thanks to the 2 people who cared and helped me with this sickness, my aunt and Lanie, our trusted maid, for without them, I am so helpless already. Thanks!!

I am still down with influenza but its not as bad as last night. I even managed to post an article. See? hehehehe

According to wikipedia, Influenza is:

Influenza, commonly known as flu, is an infectious disease of birds and mammals caused by RNA viruses of the family Orthomyxoviridae (the influenza viruses). The name influenza comes from the Italian: influenza, meaning "influence", (Latin: influentia). In humans, common symptoms of the disease are the chills, then fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness and general discomfort. In more serious cases, influenza causes pneumonia, which can be fatal, particularly in young children and the elderly. Although it is sometimes confused with the common cold, influenza is a much more severe disease and is caused by a different type of virus. Influenza can produce nausea and vomiting, especially in children, but these symptoms are more characteristic of the unrelated gastroenteritis, which is sometimes called "stomach flu" or "24-hour flu".
