    Jeez...feel like crap. I have been working to the hilt lately and for all I know I'm just worn out. But my whole body has that flu-like ache (you know that feeling) and I have very mild fever going. Stomach is okay. Worst part about it is that I work nights and I HAVE to go in.....like now.

    Is there a flu going around?

    I'm sorry to tell you, but you're becoming a zombie.


    I Haven't heard of anyone being sick. Maybe you just caught a bug

    Flu? Not really. virus "bugs"? You bet.

    Gastroenteritis being my fave. Then again, not summer-specific

    A zombie? Now THAT I would believe at the rate I've been going!

    How the come older I get, the longer and harder I have to work? Doesn't make sense.

    Sounds like 'The Creep'. This is what we've pegged it at our house. Wherever you're weak it hits you. Feel tired, cranky, old, fat and wonder if this is just the way it's going to be from now on. Sometimes a week, sometimes it does an encore and you cycle back through everything again for old times sake.

    I was reading the West Nile flu links....and I saw todays Detroit News here at work with a story on the cover of how rampant that flu is here in Michigan. I had no idea. With the amount of OT I've had to put in lately I haven't even had time to turn on the TV to hear what's going on anymore.

    Sure feels like the flu but again, I have been really pushing it and not eating much.

    Thanks gang. We'll see how the night goes here.

    How much water are you drinking in a typical 24 hour period?

    I'm guessing I drink about 5 to 8, coffee cup sizes of water a day. I don't feel dehydrated.....but I'm really feeling crappy right now. Might make it a short night. We'll see.

    West Nile (from skeeters), and Swine Flu (from the piggies) are indeed going around. Minnesota asked people prone to illness to stay away from the pig pens at the State Fair this year. 5 of my colleagues are coughing their heads off this past week.
