It started yesterday with a slight sore throat, then all last night I had horrible achey tense muscle pain in my legs -calves and thighs, all day today ive had the leg muscle acheing, bad headache, sore throat, slight tickly cough, swollen glands in my neck, no energy at all, Ive been layed on the sofa-bed literally all day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Im either freezing cold or sweating hot, and my eyes hurt.<br><br>
I just feel so awfully ill, I guess its the flu? I didnt want to eat anything all day but just felt hungry a few minutes ago, so I had a cereal bar, chocolate drops, a few mint chocolate squares and an ice lolly pop thing to help my throat.<br><br>
Im feeling really anxious and depressed too...which is weird because although I do suffer from anxiety and depression (take meds for it), having the flu has never made me have more of those thoughts before. DS is thankfully in bed right now for the night, been difficult trying to rest while hes been here with me all day, luckily I didnt have to cook anything since I had left over dinner from yesterday for him.<br><br>
Just wanted to vent to someone...

thank you! you're words all mean a lot. DS had it all last week, and is still sneezing and coughing, hopefully I get better faster than him. I cant get to sleep tonight, im just laying on the sofa, which sucks because sleeping makes you better.<br><br>
Canadianchick I feel like that too, but luckily my mom only lives 10 minutes away. She came here a few days last week while I was stuck indoors with sick DS, and she bought the grocery shopping for us. If im still like this tomorrow, she said on the phone she will take DS to her house for a few hours for me, he always enjoys himself there.

When someone is sick in my family, I get depressed/anxious from lack of sleep and rest. How can you ever rest if you are the stay at home parent? Also I get lonely from being homebound. That makes it worse.
