I asked DW to get a flu shot, for me there free, yet something always delayed getting one. By the way I don't drive and the nearest facility is 25 miles away. Normally my physician recommends delaying till November so I wasn't too concerned.
The last few days I was feeling weak and drowsy, since I'm also trying to diet and reduce my A1C level which I did 6.6 to 5.8 even more. So I mistakenly took my weakness as the effect of my efforts.
Yesterday the flu showed up full force. Besides my every joint hurting/aching my sinuses and asthma went out of control the drainage and coughing went through 1.5 rolls of Kleenex. I doubled the dosages of meds and nebulizer treatments and the steroid nasal atomizer was useless. Even my eyes were in pain. To stop the nasal faucet I used Afrin and it stung almost bringing a tear to my eyes. I suppose one of the visiting nurses gave to me since they all have school age kids.
DW has requested the nurse visits and a visiting household assistant while she is gone. Since I'm an AKA in a wheelchair DW she over worries about me.In any case I would recommend getting that flu shot now especially you with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue or asthma. Good night,
