Encounter with the Evil Dr. Flu

The most intresting thing that has happened to me so far this week, (is no more intresting that what it is depressing,) has been my encounter with the likes of the comon but nevertheless chestbreaking flu. Now i know many people must be asking themselves "Well...what so special about that, plenty of us got it too,"

Well, have i forgotten to mention that i've never gotten "The Flu" before in my life and it seems that since my inmunity is not yet quite developed this evil, evil little virus has found a way to evily stick with me, giving me fevers and coughing spells just when i think i've gotten over it. For the past three days i don't know if i've gotten better or worse, i've tried everything to built inmunity including advice in taking orange juice, cold pills, heating pads and even the old fashion "watch and see what happens reaction", but nothing has changed...

I've cursed myself for not building this inmunity before i got here, most of the people that i know that had it (and contaged me with it.) Are doing fine by now...even people from the island had gotten it already and don't need to worry about it. I've even found myself asking why do i have the shot for the ebola, dengue, malaria and yellow fever if its not going to help me at all with a simple thing like this, i could probably survive without struggle in the jungles of Africa or South America, but one drizziling afternoon that i brilliantly decided to step out my dorm without a sweater on has ruined what seemed to be a perfectly good week.

that sucks you are sick! it's wild that you have never had the flu before... believe me, you weren't missing anything. everyone and their mother has like twenty flu remedies... my personal favorite? sleep. a lot. crawl into bed and drop off to dreamland. i bet you'll have cool dreams about puerto rico and then you can write about them for us insatiably curious folk. (um, that's me). i hope you feel better! see you in class on monday. :c)

I'm sorry you're sick Misheila. I wish you chicken soup.

Thank you, i'm actually feeling better now, i think i got over it (i think). I'll know for sure in the next couple of days, but thank you both for the advice, i'll try both if the little "problem," once again ever returns.
