Re: Having the flu....
It was probably a booster shot of antibiotics to get into your system quickly and the oral meds for you to take for 7 - 10 days.
That happened to me 25 years ago when my husband and I travelled to Calgary (prime flu season in Calgary that year). I felt crappy just as we left there to come home thinking I was getting a cold. By 3:00 in the morning I had a very high fever and we had to go to the hospital in Swift Current. My fever was over 103 and I just wanted to die. I got 2 shots in the butt of antibiotics and oral meds for 10 days.
I slept all the next day at our motel and used gravol all the way home to winnipeg. I missed all the snowstorms (thankfully), but by the time we drove into our driveway, I was already feeling better. My biggest mistake was saying OK to Burger King. One bite of that burger, and my throat said Yuck, no way....I haven't been able to eat one to this day.
Anyway, that's my experience with the butt shots and meds. That's what the doc explained to me.
Get better soon,
It's all a matter of perspective!
