Man do I feel terrible. My finger is on the mend, but I think the shock of it has finally opened the door for the flu to get me. It feels similar to the one I struggled through last summer, I just hope I don’t end up in the emergency room again. The worst part is the aches and pains – I’m not very feverish, I just have a sore lower back and pounding headaches. Good thing I have my Saltines and some water around!
