I'm in Texas. Guess I should report in on my flu-like illness a month prior.
So I had 3 beers the night before, went to sleep, and woke up, having to immediately throw up stomach acids and thick (virus or bacteria filled) white
I thought this was weird, as I'd never been hungover from drinking so little. It was hard to put down food, but I managed over the span of several
hours to get a meals worth in. By that evening, the shivers alternating with heat sweats had started, as had muscle weakness and pain all over.
I realized this wasn't a hangover, I was ill. I have been sick twice prior in my adult life, and this of someone who is 31 years of age... in 2001,
and 2005. So I was a little spooked over this, but am damned against antibiotics or antivirals pharma meds unless I'm about to roll over and die type
I toughed it out for the next 72 hours. Other symptoms were of course cough, phlegm, and minor headache. It seemed to be 90% gone after a few days,
but lingered on for weeks.
For weeks I had a very deep throat scratch, and was randomly cough/sneezing out yellowish nasties. I've never projected out at random times like this
before. It was bizarre. Nor had it ever been so deep in my throat that it was so difficult to clear.
Well, in the last week it's cleared up. I have maybe 1% of the cough left, and am thankful to know whatever it was, it's over with.
Might this have been flu, leading to bronchitis? I do know bronch lasts for weeks, but thought it would be more severe. I didn't hurt in my lungs at
Anyways, I'm just glad it's over. Felt the need to report, considering that I'm in Texas.
Be safe, everyone.
