Sick and Tired of Being Sick!

Okay so Craziest weekend ever! Over the weekend I felt like I was feeling just fine. Friday night after hanging with some friends and eating at Texas Roadhouse disaster struck…..  I was hit full on with the worst flu bug I have ever had in my life!!!! This was bad folks. Literally when I say worst in my life I would take back days of morning sickness and nausea if I didn’t have to go through that again!  Horrible cold chills, violent stomach ache, couldn’t even hold down a sip of water without throwing it up 5 minutes later.
