Ah, the Asian "Death" Flu...
In Japan they simply call it Influenza Type A or B. It sounds so innocent, so simple. And yet, one little letter and you find yourself practically under house arrest (for your own good and that of your co-workers'). A fever, problems breathing, muscle, nerve, and joint pain (you name it, it's all there). To experience so many glorious sensations all at once is a humbling experience. It reminds me that yes, I am still human, and unfortuantely no, I have not passed out yet.
Phones are off limits, except for texting, as I lost my voice somewhere in the early stages. For those who know me, yes it is very tragic that I can no longer speak. Azusachan I'm sure you would sympathize as would grey_demaskena, for you would most definitely feel lonely in the tranquil silence that follows in my wake.

And that's all the energy I have for now, so don't mind me while I lie back on my little sofa. And if my eyes roll into the back of my head, worry not, for I am just resting them.

Ugh, feel better Kat! I think it's impossible for foreigners to escape the flu, what with all their coworkers coming to work no matter HOW sick they are. Make sure you don't bow to their pressure to sacrifice your nenkyu - use your sick leave!

Thanks Amy. Thankfully my school took the news rather well. My supervisor said "Stay home for five days and get better. Don't worry about classes" (because she knows I'm a worry wort). As long as I bring in the doctor's receipt (the one with all the drugs I had to buy) then it will count for my sick leave. I think the biggest tragedy for my school is the fact that I have no voice. No matter how much I wanted to, opening and closing my mouth without sound wouldn't teach the kids anything... lol.
