Worked rather late into the evening on Thursday, and woke up Friday feeling a bit sick.
Nothing horrible, just a mild fever and a cough, bit of body aches, but decided to exercise a bit of caution and I took the day off work. If it wasn't anything, then so be it, but if I was actually coming down with an illness, I certainly didn't want to risk spreading it around the office.
Spent most of Friday and Saturday holed up. LOTS of fluids, a few naps, and orange juice and chicken soup by the gallon.
Feeling normal now, and I think maybe I dodged a bullet. Probably just a bit of a cold, but certainly not the flu that's causing a lot of folks a lot of frustration.
There's something to be said for living alone and not being a very social person: I don't interact with many people, which means the risk of catching whatever illness they might have is mitigated to a large degree.
