Getting Over The Flu

Anonymous

I got knocked out by the flu on Saturday. I'm finally starting to feel better, but I can't go back to work til Monday per Doctors Orders. Is it ok to exercise or clean the house or will I have a relapse? I've never had the flu before. I have energy for the first time in 5 days!

I would exercise. Almost nothing stops me from exercising.

Do something easy. Walking and maybe a 20 minute yoga for healing. They have yoga for almost everything on YouTube.

Glad you're feeling better.

I would say do what you have energy for. Drink lots of water and take it easy on foods.

Thank you!!! For days I just laid in bed or on the couch! I've never been so out of it!

Ok. Maybe I can go back to work Friday so I don't get too behind in my work.

I'm afraid I'm going to crash, but I'm sick of laying around!

Your doctor didn't give you Tamiflu?

No. Just said bedrest and fluids.
