    Default Anyone else suffering from the flu?

    I got hit with it on Friday...couldn't move for two days, here it is the following Thursday and I'm still not 75% yet. Been to the Clinic, got a battery of Meds....

    This is the sickest I've been in over 20 years.


    Anyone else?

    nope thank goodness...but it seems it is everywhere


    I got the shot

    and I wash my hands like a crazy person

    last night at the grocery store I whipped out a small can of Lysol and sprayed my cart down......I thought people would look at me like I was nuts, they just looked at me like "hmmm I should buy some Lysol"

    when I get something from the drive thru I take wet wipes and wipe it down...cup, bottle whatever....I don't shake hands and use a tissue to open doors and push elevator buttons etc

    and I have an ap on my phone "flu around me"

    but it is inevitable I fear

    I got the shot a couple months ago, but I work in an office of about 40-50 people. Two are already out with it, one more just got over it about a week ago and returned to work, and I am fully expecting two more to be hit in the coming days as they live in the same house as a person that has it right the fuck now.

    Get yer damn shots people. Like, today.

    I got the flu shot, but I ended up getting something very similar anyway. Started with pukey pukey, then the shitty poopy, then finished with the achey fever.

    I had it about a month ago for round one. My son and I each puked once and were layed out a few days. Round two came a week later right after Christmas. I wasn't puking on that one but it sure did want to hang on. Just got over it really and back to 100 percent about 4-5 days ago. A bunch of us that went down to the homeless shelter the day after Christmas all came down with it all at once so we likely picked it up there. Put my Dad in the hospital. He got really jacked up. All on the mend now. Imagine not having your comfy bed and having to deal with that shit out on the street. I felt bad for the homeless folk.

    Sounds like a Billy Ray Cyrus song.

    Got it bad just before Christmas. I was in bed for 4 days and was still not healthy when I went back to work...it took 3 weeks before I felt right. It felt like I was recovering from a bad car accident or something, worst flu I've ever had.

    If you are puking you probably don't have the influenza...you have norovirus...which is pretty darn bad this year

    Influenza is like suddenly coming down with the worst cold you have ever had with a high temp


    reason I saying this is that if you have had the puking norovirus aka stomach flu you have not had the flu and don't have any immunity as such

    so it's still not too late to get the flu shot to protect yourself

    the last year I did not get a flu shot was 1996...the year I moved into my new house and was delayed because I got the flu...bad...then the norovirus...then a cold with lingering bronchitis...then another strain of the flu again that turned into walking phuemonia...then I broke my foot, I had an inner ear infection with vertigo ...then got some kind of super painful kidney inflammation as a complication of the virus doctor said the first bad case of flu wore out my immune system and set me up for pretty much everything that followed

    with renovations and illness it took me almost three months to get moved into the house

    getcha flu shot folks!

    Drove cross country... likely picked up the flu in Arkansas or Oklahoma...

    First cold like symptoms - then aches and pains - then 102 fever - then bronchitis - then additional lung inflammation from the coughing - finally at end of week 2 feeling 85-90%. Had Biaxin for Bronchitis and now prednisone for the inflammation. Could be worse - no puking thank God...

    My mother had it pretty bad, just got over it. She's elderly so it was kind of a big deal. She had just had a flu shot to.
    The worst cold I ever had was right after the shot...so yeah I'm skeptical of them. I'm not Ted nugent I think the govt is trying to kill us all, skeptical, just don't believe they work.
