    Angry Bad bad Flu Bug

    I got the bug last week and I thought I was in h*ll,

    For 5 days I had the cold chills and couldn't get out of bed,

    My ankles /knees/ elbows/knuckles/back hurt so bad I asked Dee to shoot me.<<<. I really did.

    Things are looking better I feel much better today.

    You can bet your last dollar that next year.. I'M GETTING THE FLU SHOT.

    I never want to live thru that ordeal again.



    Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

    My wife recently got the flu. They did the swab test and it was not one of the strains this year's flu shot covered so she didn't miss out by not getting one.

    I guess I got lucky. Mine hit on a Friday night (after eating a T-Bone) and it was gone by Sunday. Vomitted only once (remember that T-Bone I ate) and had a 103.5 temperature. Every bone in my body hurt but was gone soon after. I've had freinds who had it 5-9 days. No thanks!

    I have the same thing continuing from the day after new years day. I thought I was feeling better on Friday so I caught up on some things in the office and then Saturday it came back with vengeance. I have been on the couch and end ever since. Cough, sore throat, fever on and off, everything aches, headache, sinus congestion, you name it.

    FYI mucinex fast max only helps for a little while.

    The flu shot is only a crap shoot they get it right. The only year we had flu was the one year we got flu shots. Go figure.
