Flash flu

So I went to my cousin's bridal shower yesterday. It was fun, a little weird just because it's a bridal shower... but fun. All day though, my stomach felt uneasy. I couldn't figure out why, or how to make it go away.. but by the time the sun went down yesterday, my odd feeling turned into full blown flu symptoms. I was achey, definitely running a fever, and super nauseous.
Two Peptobismol pills and 600 milligrams of ibuprofen later, and I was sleeping sound.. only waking up to find myself sweating profusely. Idk what happened, but I'm fine today.. thank goodness.

What I really don't understand is why this has to happen? Yesterday, while basking in my pain and frustration, I was thinking about how we all experience this. All of us get sick and can't touch or hug or kiss anyone for as long as we're in misery. We all have to suffer at a distance from the rest of the world. Is this the universe's way of making us all empathize with the real suffering people in the world? What if the only reason we catch these ass hole bugs that make our world suck for a days on end is so that we open our eyes to the people experiencing much worse pain than us each and every day?
just a thought.
