I'm sorry you're sick...
I had the flu a couple weeks ago, and if it's like the one everyone around here has - I took mucinex (the one with the green label) and I was better 2 days later, which is like a miracle from monkeys for me.
It especially helps with the breathing while asleep part.

I hope you feel better soon. & I hope you get comfortable rest!

Can't beat watching Buffy when you're under the weather. Sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly.

There's nothing worse than feeling sick and being unable to do anything comforting. Hope you feel much better soon! I haven't caught the flu since I started knitting, but I tried to start a diagonal rib scarf once when I was very sick with my monthly problem. The diagonal rib was zigzagged. I have no idea what I did to create that, but it looked pretty good. The problem was, I couldn't keep the zigzags even because I didn't know what I was doing wrong!

(I'm with you on not going to work sick. It's just plain rude.)

Get better soon !
I know it is not nice to be ill. Ihave had my 7yr old son at home from school for the whole week with the cold.

Just take it easy and the knitting will wait for when you are better

Aw. Bless your heart. Sick AND too sick to knit. Really s*cks! Just curl up with a hot cup of tea and the remote. Maybe watch movies with knitting in them while you are snuggling up to a hank of Malabrigo. Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes! It makes me feel a bit better!
I do feel a little better today, but I figured since it's a Friday and I'm still achy and tired I would just stay home again. No sense in going to work and not getting much done when I can just rest more. Work will still be there on monday

There's definitely something going around. My DH decided to give me his "allergies" (that's what he kept insisting his sore throat and stuffy nose were) a couple of weeks ago. It is miserable. Then DS got it. Anyway, I find that when I have a bad cold or something to that effect I have trouble concentrating with my eyes. They hurt too much. I tried to knit a Clapotis last Winter while laid up with a sinus infection. I made so many mistakes I had to frog it four times. Lesson learned - save the knitting for when your eyes aren't achy. It's a bummer because being sick is so boring, but I hope you get to feeling better soon. Get lots of rest and drink lots of fluids. And eat anything you feel up to eating. That's what our mom always told us.

I once had to unravel half a baby sweater because I tried to knit when I was sick, so I learned my lesson. lol. I hope you're feeling better soon. There really is nothing like some good Buffy episodes to perk a person up.
