update on this jungle rot

I have all the symptoms of the flu except the fever.  Day Four (Monday) was worse than Day 3.  Ugh.

that’s all I’ve got.  No idea when I will head back to work but at this point I need to just be able to take a shower!

And yes, I got my flu shot in late September.  I guess it’s keeping me from getting a fever?  I don’t know.  Not feeling very lucky…

prayers gratefully accepted.

    Hey—my guy has had the same thing. Not having a fever has made us hesitant to have him see his doctor or get an antibiotic. But three weeks?

    His coughing all over the house, and just the normal spreading of germs has me also having a cough, sore throat, and head congestion. I had my flu shot in early December. I truly believe my doctor's advice—it would be worse without the shot.

    Hang in there, my friend.

    Sorry you're so sick. Sending prayers. When I went to the doctors last time he asked if I wanted a flu shot and I said no. I've never gotten one and I asked if they were absolutely necessary. He said yes and no, depending on what you do.

    Feel better soon. I thought I had flu last July — all the symptoms but it was July. Turned out to be Lyme disease and antibiotics were the answer. It is such a drag to be sick.

    My husband reported reading that the flu shot is only good now for 10% of the strains out there. The flu has morphed and it is taking a toll on people. So be careful and take care of yourself. Stay home too so you don't spread it.

    Oh dear… I'm so sorry! I'm not feeling great right now. I think I'm fighting a cold. I'm going to need to make some chicken soup soon. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll recover quickly.

    I just got my flu shot. Who knows if it will help. I sure hope you are feeling much better and very soon. (At least you have some good reading material!)
