Default I feel like crapola !!!!

I feel like Crapola!!! Went to the ready clinic and thank god no flu, just a minor viral cold. You are talking to a person that gets sick about every 10 years, so anytime I feel bad, I'm a baby. At least, all I want to do is sleep. Everyone have a safe & healthy New Years. Looks like I might be bundled up & sleeping through this cold front

I have the Flu. Our entire boat had to go home due to everyone testing positive for it. My skull feels like it will explode any second.

On day four. Hate missing work. Fn' up my weekend as well. Got into my chest and the doc put me on Levaquin, and it's ripping me up. Okay, I got the sand out of my crack.

Hope to get out for this cold snap. Deer will be hitting the feeders hard.

Been a pretty miserable week. I came down with Strep on Christmas Eve. Then gave it to my wife and one of the kids. We are just now starting to recover. Dr at the clinic said it's been a steady flow of flu patients this year. Heck the flu would have been nice.

Took me over a month and 3 courses of antibiotics to get over strep/bronchitis, my immune system being seriously compromised had the doctors freakin’, they were on the verge of hospital rooms and iv antibiotics.

Same here....clinic was outta flu test but all my symptoms meet it. Treating it as the flu. Sure does suck sitting here in the house all day staring at the walls!! I believe the coughing is worse I've ever had but it doesn't help that it feels like someone beat me wh a bat!! Hopefully everyone gets well soon!! I'm just praying and hoping my kids don't catch it

I got knocked down yesterday. Stared as a stomach bug and by dinner time I just skipped dinner and went to bed. Had a fever and chills. Went into deep hibernation for 2 hours, woke up and hit some more theraflu, then slept for another 12 hours. Thankfully woke up feeling back to 100%.

Wife and daughter had it before Christmas and 12 yr old son right after. My 3 yr old has it pretty bad now. I'm the only one who hasn't gotten it.

My wife is out of town so I'm at home with them. I had planned on my mom watching them and me slipping out a couple evenings for a hunt but I'm not going to do that so she can get it too.

Da3n it! I hope you're doing better. That sounds like a rough road. End up as pneumonia?

No thankfully that 3rd of antibiotics got me back up and running. Now just gotta get past the wife and doctors wanting me to live like “the boy in the bubble”.

There's no such thing as thinking you might have the flu.
If you have the flu, you actually think that dying would be the best remedy.

Doctor told us it takes about 4 days from when you get the symptoms to actually get the flu.

My symptoms were, sore throat, coughing, chills, sweating at night, headaches,and muscle aches.

Hope you take meds as soon as possiblr
