There are three stages of advanced sickness:
1. You think you are going to die
2. You hope you are going to die
3. You worry you are not going to die
Fortunately I never even reached stage 1, but I was pretty sick this weekend with all the classical flu symptoms. I broke out my stockpile of Tamiflu and after 48 hours have gotten rid of the major symptoms, but am still pretty fatigued. With an incubation period of 1-3 days, it means I picked this up in Taiwan or more likely on the plane ride back.
The common refrain from friends and family was that it is surprising it took so long for me to finally catch something during all my travels.
