The Scarlet Flu mask?
I can remember when Lise was a student at UO, remarking on the Asian students wearing masks when they were sick. She wondered why they were so considerate. Good question! This is something we all need to start making a habit.
I was sure my bug started a ways back, but the doctor said I probably had more than one. When I mentioned that it felt like I hit a wall on Friday, her eyes lit up, "that's exactly how h1n1 starts--hard and fast." She asked a few more questions, swabbed my nose, "this may be uncomfortable.". Yup, I think uncomfortable fits about right. She told me I'd be hearing the results soon, but in the meantime she was going to start me on Tamiflu, "it cuts the duration in half and you've only just begun.".
Now I have this urge to curl up on the couch with a blanket, Hope and a bottle of Whiskey. Isn't that a cure all??
