Flu hitting me hard


Recommended Posts

Left work early last Friday with 102 fever. I slept from 1230 Friday afternoon to Saturday morning at 6am. Sweating my ass off, freezing my ass off, diarrhea, vomiting, haven't ate anything in days. Sore throat. Went to the doctor today. I have the flu for the first time in my life. I'm 31 years old. This sucks. They ordered in tamiflu but doc said I may have waited to long. ... my living room now looks like a homeless guy lives here. What a mess. Maybe next year I'll get my first flu shot. I never bothered with flu shot because I never got the flu.

Damn!  Feel better!!! Wonder if they can determine the strain and if the flu shot would have helped.  I never get the flu shot either.  I figure it protects against a dart throw at a few strains of the flu which are guessed to be most likely that year, then there are dozens of other strains that wind up hitting people and the flu shot does nothing against.

wishing you a speedy recovery - yeah I been getting flu shot past two years, never did before but so far so good. 

I been getting the flu shot for as long as I can remember.  Had the flu twice when I was a child but, not since thank god.  Feel better.  You can understand why it kills people.

I get the flu shot and pay attention when out and around and touching things (door knobs, etc), even the change you get back when you buy something, and shaking hands to keep my hands away from my face (eyes, nose & mouth) until I have washed them.

I thought, growing old would take longer ! 

I spent most of my money on shotguns and fly rods.  The rest I just wasted.
