Have you ever been this tired?

I haven’t regained my strength since my husband and I both came down with the flu at the end of January, almost 8 weeks ago. My husband seems to be doing fine now, yay. But as for me, although I haven’t had a fever or any other flu symptoms for at least a month, I am still very weak.

A few nights ago I was sitting at the dinner table with our poodle on my lap, eating some walnuts, and feeling exhausted beyond belief. I took a swig of water and then, before I had even swallowed, I fell asleep. With a mouth full of water!

I woke up a moment later, spluttering and half-choking. It was scary and very weird. I have never done anything like that before.

I called the next day and made an appointment at a medical clinic. After examining me and taking my history, the nurse practitioner sent me to the hospital for blood tests. I will see her again on Monday to learn the results of the tests. In the meantime, I am still very exhausted. It doesn’t seem to matter how much sleep I’ve had, I still wake up feeling wiped out. But at least I haven’t fallen asleep mid-swallow again!

God bless you and thank you for reading. I hope that everyone who reads this is well. Here is a big grandma ((HUG)) for anyone who wants one.
