summer flu

Just a heads up, make sure you are using the cart wipes in stores, and washing your hands often. Dave, Abi and I have either been sick or are sick. When I called my primary care doc today they were unable to see me, stating they are triple booked for the next 2 1/2 days with patients with the exact same symptoms I'm having. They said when they came in this morning there were 65 messages on their voicemail, almost all of them wanting to be seen, that's not counting those that had the docs paged, or hung up with plans of just calling in today. I ended up going to a walgreens minute clinic to be treated. I have strep, sinusitus, and an upper respritory infection. I felt fine friday, and woke up Sat totally sick. The NP at the walgreens clinic said they are also seeing tons of people that can't get in with their regular docs, and most have strep. Just wanted to put a PSA out there to remind everyone that winter isn't the only time to be mindful of germs. Even with my daily dose of zinc I got sick, and I'm rarely sick.

I don't ride, I cook!

Yes it does suck big time. It hit me really fast. Friday night I was getting tattooed, felt great, laughing and having fun, even got the chance to hang out with Deefib, and came home and got some sleep. When I got up Sat morning, I was achy, had chills, and a sore throat. Next thing I know I'm coughing, and my nose was running. Now my lungs are hurting and I have reduced lung function. I have asthma and that's common for me when I'm sick. It just sucks, and the heat makes it worse.

I don't ride, I cook!

Lol, took me a solid couple weeks to get over completely but I'm a-ok now.
