Since yesterday I have been on quarantine. And I have three and a half more days to go until I am allowed to see humans or leave my home.
It sucks big balls.
I went to the doctor yesterday because I had some gnarly symptoms that mimicked what one person had presented with earlier this week. One throat culture and an EKG later and I have the flu. And not the nice strain, no, I’ve got the gnarly H1N1.
Now I’m awaiting my cardiology referral because I had an irregular heartbeat and that has worried them. And in turn worried me, which is bad since my heart is already thumping wildly within my chest.
As a result of my debacle yesterday I had to notify another daycare of their contamination and they are all being treated with preventive drugs. I also received multiple phone calls from departments within the Navy hospital asking about all my symptoms and all of “patient zero’s” symptoms.
And I thought it was both cool and scary that I got to use the phrase “patient zero” in sentences.
So do me a favor people…if you have ANY symptoms of the flu, please go in to be seen or lock yourself away from everyone. Though the second idea is not recommended since this strain is killing healthy, young adults. People who have received the flu shot are not immune, as evidenced by the fact that patient zero in this outbreak received a flu shot.
Now, I’m off to have my heart beat wildly, completely out of normal rhythm, while sweating and aching and praying for death. I have set my blog to auto publish for the next few days.
See you on the other side. Hopefully.
