Dear Local Newscasters,
I'd like to say thank you, for making me freak out all day on Sunday thinking I had the Swine Flu. 'Since Flu's are not in season, if you have these symptoms, you should get checked for the Swine Flu immediately' was the quote that did it.
As mentioned in my last post (last week) I'm not feeling well. I haven't been able to taste or smell anything since Thursday. Well that continued into this past beautiful weekend, ruining all plans for enjoying the warm weather and prompting me to finally see a doctor today.
Thoughts on the way over to the Doctor's office...
- When was the last time i was in Mexico???
- I can't be the first person in Massachusetts to get the Swine Flu, that'd be absolutely insane.
- This was NOT how I was going to be featured on the Today Show and be interviewed by Matt Lauer
I chuckled 'Phew, I'm glad it wasn't the swine flu' and her eyes lit up and she said 'Do you know how many calls I've gotten today from patients who think they have it? Most with no symptoms whatsoever!!'
I think these newscasts just opened up Pandora's Box.
On the plus side, this no tasting thing has jumpstarted my diet getting ready for bathing suit season. But yeah, everything else about a Sinus Infection completely blows.. no pun intended.
