I think you probably have the flu, honey. Some of the symptoms are fever, headache, cough, and body aches.
Ugh, I don't feel very good. My head and muscles hurt and I think I have a fever.
Relax. The flu (aka influenza) is a contagious virus - it can spread when droplets from a person who has the virus get into your body. There are 4 types- A, B, C, and D. You most likely have A or B, because those occur seasonally.
What? How did I even get it? Will I still be able to go out with my friends tomorrow, or will I be like this forever?!?!
And no, the flu doesn't last forever. It usually goes away in a few days, but I'm taking you to see a doctor. Also, you can't go out with your friends, unless you want them to get sick too.
Some time later...
Thank you, Doctor.
I've decided to prescribe you some antiviral drugs to reduce your symptoms. Make sure you stay at home until you feel better! You'll be able to do anything you want after that!
Remember, to prevent this from happening to you again, get your flu vaccines on time. Also, avoid contact with sick people, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and wash your hands as often as possible.
Okay! I'll definitely keep that in mind so nothing like this can happen again!
