    So I just came back to the world after 2 days of the worst headache I have ever had in my life. It felt like i was being hit in the head with a hammer every heartbeat.
    I started getting sick on Wednesday and buy Thursday night i was getting a fever...Sometime friday afternoon in morphed into 'holy fuck' status. This thing beat the crap out of me. I was in bed for at least 36 hours immobilized. Shoveling pseudoephedrine, ibuprofen and cough meds...fuck I don't wish that on anyone. I was rocking a 102.5+ for 2 days. This is one of those kill you in the 1800's flus. Fever finally broke this morning and I chowed on a bagel egg cheese sandwich from a local place...I was sooo famished.

    No I got a flu shot in November. I always get one. The 17% effective shot allegedly helped me some?? :( ..I had the flu back in early 2000's and always get a shot since then...This was brutal.

    Didn't get the flu but I've been dealing with bronchitis since before Christmas. Just this weekend I started feeling better.

    The pneumonia is a huge killer of the elderly.

    My daughter brought some bug home from kindergarten and gave it to me.
    The sore throat is not that bad, but the headache is killing. The headache is so bad that my entire neck and shoulders hurt, because I am constantly tense, trying not to move my head around too much.
    Husband is stranded somewhere. Caught flu on a business trip and stuck somewhere in Germany with it, doesn't want to come home and give it to me, the kids and my parents.

    Just looked at pictures. That's an ugly ass city. It looks like the town Charlie Bucket grew up in.

    Had the vaccine late last year, but when three people in the house all get it, it’s hard to avoid.

    Diagnosed with flu type A this morning.

    It’s been at least 20 years since I felt this sick.

    The Vaccine can make the overall illness and healing overwith faster...I was only deathly ill for 48hrs...But I have unvaccinated co-workers that were deathly ill for 5+ days...so you got that going for you... [​IMG]

    I never got a flu shot.
    Whatever I was coming down with is mostly gone now.
