The flu is rough on the body. First, I had an upset stomach, then I had diarrhea, then I was vomiting. I also had terrible migraine headaches.
After all that was done, I got a runny nose and was getting a lot of saliva in my mouth.
Eco-friendly Tip: A spit bucket is a great way to collect the saliva, and save tissue paper.
After a few more days, I started coughing up huge amounts of phlegm and really thick snot. These huge globs were collecting in the back of my throat, and were practically glued there.
It feels weird to cough up mucus. Mucus is supposed to come out of the nose. Plus, you ever get that feeling you just coughed up part of your lung? It's painful!
In any case, I'd rate the flu 2.5 out of 5.
It's not pleasant.
It's not pleasant. It SNOT pleasant! Bwahahahaa. Hee Hee.
