yep...they try to innoculate against the flu that is plaguing South America from what i understand. My brother in law is a virologist at the CDC and is on the team that designs the flu shot. It is a crap shoot at best. I never get the flu shot...ever

Now the flu nose spray - as my MD told me - is a different matter...not dead virus but live...ugh.

*edit - And my better 9/10ths is a school nurse - tons of flu and 2 different sets of symptoms.
1 - fever and vomiting = everywhere.
2 - no fever/nausea but a killer headache... flu sucks.
I have #2. the headache is the worst. But it's better then the vomiting.

Ouch - sorry to hear! Hope you get over it quick. I agree it's better than the puking strain - let's just say it's gotta suck to be a school maintenance guy right now... (they had to take stuff outside to hose it off...ugh.)

The perks of knowing how to start an IV on one's self is if you have access to IV bags and catheters is they are great for hang overs and sever cases of the runs

These were exactly the symptoms I had. I got the flu shot in October but I got this flu the week before Christmas. The coughing was the worst part. I had the fever, aches, fatigue, no appetite, etc. Lost 5 to 10 lbs with this thing. Took me a week or so to start to feel normal but that cough lingered.

This thing is kicking my ass I have never had anything like this. From growing up I remember the Flu running it's course in about 2-3 days.

I'm on day 4 now. I felt better yesterday morning. but as the day went on it got worse again.

I am not nauseous at all so able to eat and drink plenty. but damn....

Sounds like what I had. As the day goes on I would start feeling worse. I did start feeling better after 6-7 days. Today was the best I felt since I got it last Monday. 12 days now and I worked hard for 10 hours today, but I did start wearing down and got a headache. Feel a lot better though and I think a few more days and I'll be 100%.

My 6 y/o went to bed burning up. Woke up at 4:30 and got sick to his stomach. Looks like it's got us. We're off to his doc as soon as they open.


And we all got our flu shots.
