I'm in flu hell

And I just need a moan! Have had flu since Sunday and I'm feeling sooooooooo sorry for myself. Everything aches - jaw, neck, throat is red raw, glands are the size of eggs and I'm either shivering and shaking with piles of clothes on, or sweating. Haven't slept for more than 30 mins at a time since Sunday - this is worse than when ds was born!!

Right, just needed to offload. I'm taking Brufen, paracetamol and am going to down some night nurse tonight in a desperate attempt to get some sleep - is there anything else better I should be doing?

dp is being an absolute Trojan - looking after both ds's all on her own, + me - so I'm feeling very guilty aswell that getting up every now and then to look at Mumsnet (keeps me sane?!) is just about all I can do before I have to go back to bed...

Right, that's it - grumble over..!

Aw so sorry you feel this way. I had a horrid fuley thing three weeks ago and have had a few minor bugs since so I am sure my resistence was lowered by it. Just take it easy and let dp get on with it. You will return the favour one day I'm sure.
