It’s nasty stuff. If you don’t have it, I sure hope you don’t get it. It is a viral or bacterial infection that I will refer to as the “creeping crud.”
My first symptom was a cough; next came a nasty headache accompanied with chills and all over body aches. The muscles in my stomach and chest hurt from the coughing. Weakness is another symptom. I am now in week two of this miserable stuff.
I decided to go to social media to find out if others had anything similar and what they did for it. I was surprised to learn how many others had or have many of the same symptoms. My cousin, Mike, from California commented: “Wow. Didn’t know it was everywhere. My wife and I are on week five or six, I lost count. The symptoms vary from week to week, but the underlying weakness persists throughout. And the cough.”
A relative, Hanne Robenhagen, who lives in Denmark, said, “We have the same thing in our country; the same symptoms, coughing and all.”
