It’s awful. I wake up with a headache. My entire body hurts. My stomach is threatening to turn on me. I gently push myself to a sitting position and rest a moment. Will I be able to stand?

I spend the next day feeling like crap, between hot flashes and cold flashes, guzzling water trying to fight what I fear might be the beginning of the flu. Or maybe it was the fish I had at Olive Garden on Friday? Do I have food poisoning? Oh God, what is wrong with me? I just hurt everywhere…. It must be the flu.
