When I say “sudden onset”, I worked out on Friday and didn’t begin feeling ill until later in the afternoon. The workout was terrible; my legs felt like lead. That happens sometimes, and I didn’t connect it with getting the flu. Instead, I went to the app on my phone for encouragement. According to the stats there [and they don’t tell you what the data pool is, making the number highly suspect], last week I was more active than 86% of Seattle. In the moment, that reinforcement was just was I was looking for.

  1. for Mary: Flu is a powerful leveler of anyone’s sense of invincibility. Since I can’t be on my feet for more than a few minutes without getting woozy, I am not on my feet. Stretched out on the couch with NCAA Women’s basketball on, and not doing much else.

  2. for Mary: So far am managing OK, and I don’t want the kids to be exposed to flu germs, although I will ask for help if I need it. This is one of the harder things about living alone. Last night I craved a cup of tea and didn’t have the energy to get up and make it.
