Flu

PITTSBURGH AND PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE -- Anybody else got the flu? For a week I've had some combination of muscle aches, overwhelming tiredness, nasal congestion and sore throat in varying degrees. I used to think of "flu" as a winter thing. Now, it's like pineapples and clementines:  you can get them all year round, but they could be really lousy.

Daughter in Australia had the gunk-from-the-nose version. Sister in South Carolina had the headache version. Folks at the hair salon passed it all the way around.

I slept 3 hours this afternoon, and now I can almost function. And I'm trying raspberry/elderberry zinc lozenges. Hope everyone else affected is on the mend.
