Did it floor you? Were you unable to leave bed?
For a couple of days at its peak I did not eat anything and tried to sleep most of the day. Took lots of paracet and also some gravols (dimenhydrinate) to knock me out. I have a jar of them from Canada, over the counter there, non existent here. They work as sleeping tablets for me.
Appetite still affected.
I thought I was over it (started nine days ago) but today was not great. Had to lie down at 6:30pm. Was considering checking in to local A+E, but feel better now after a two hour sleep, and also didn't feel it was warranted compared to other reported conditions. Cough still persistent. Older kid also still coughing, listless and floppy at random times, and he also went to bed this evening at 6:30 which is unheard of.
The cough also feels different to others in the past.
FWIW I am 43, generally healthy, don't smoke, have been vegan for 16 years, run 3 times a week, and don't drink much alcohol any more. Very rarely off work with illness. My work is closed and WFH at the moment, but there's no way I could put in anywhere near a full day at the moment. Being sick for this amount of time with me is completely outside the pale.
