I get the feeling that lately we took the concern with flu and viruses way to serious and it is okay to let the worry chill for a moment, by reading some funny flu quotes and bring a smile on our faces.
Starting with flu quotes:
Bombeck’s rule of Medicine: Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.
“One of the minor pleasures in life is to be slightly ill.” Harold Nicholson
The doctor tells the patient he has very bad flu. The patient says he wants a second opinion. The doctor says, ”OK, you’re ugly too”.
“A doctor is the only man without a guaranteed cure for the cold”. Dominic Cleary
“The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature affects the cure.” Voltaire
“If a doctor treats your cold, it will go away in fourteen days. If you leave it alone, it will go away in two weeks. Gloria Silverstein
A man walks into the pharmacy and asks the pharmacist, ”Do you have any acetylsalicylic acid?”
“Do you mean aspirin?” says the pharmacist.
“That’s it, I can never remember that word.”
“My dear doctor, I’m surprised to hear you say that I am coughing very badly, because I have been practicing all night.” John Philpot Curran
“I don’t know how not to get the flu.” Alfred W. Crosby
“Chain letters are the postal equivalent of intestinal flu: you get it and pass it along to your friends.” Bob Garfield
Ending with flu memes:
To be mentioned, that the source of the memes is: Google Images.
I don’t know what is happening to me in the last few days but I don’t feel so good. My energy is all drained and I feel like I am failing to perform even the easiest tasks at home and work.
In the morning when I wake up my body is weak and every muscle is hurting me, my head aches so bad and I have fever. The eyes are swollen and I can barely open them as I tend to weep.
My voice is changed and I cough now and then and I am dizzy, failing to pay attention at things being disturbed by a tinnitus. My chest is in pain and I can barely speak as the tonsils are swollen.
My food appetite is low and I mostly eat fluid foods and drink a lot of tea and water. I have chills and if now I am hot in the next minute I am so cold that nothing could make me feel warm again.
Yesterday I thought that maybe the change of program at work and the working hours could interfere with my physical state but I think it is something else. With this constant change of weather the organism tends to fail.
The day before yesterday, outside were only 18 degrees, with sun and warm wind and yesterday it was snow and -1 degree. No wonder flu and other diseases are so easy to appear and affect the body.
Now I am treating myself with hot lemon tea with herbs, Theraflu and vitamin C to help the body recover. In a few hours I have to get ready for work and start a new productive day, ignoring the flu that catches me in its nets.
I am hopeful as the weekend approaches and I am free to stay in the bed, rest and recover from the flu. How is your week going? 🙂
