I must have gotten it from you OP. I have a fever of 102. My throat is so swollen that I can't speak and it hurts to swallow. My head feels like it's about to explode. I'm living off cough drops, throat spray, ibuprofen, and water. I'm not hungry. I've gotten chills, and now I'm either too hot, or too cold. I'm constantly changing my clothes. I was actually seating in a small area of my neck. My limbs hurt in weird areas. It's godawful. I'm in bed. I've been sick since Wednesday. People around me were sick Christmas Eve. I want to kill them. Anyway, I'm somewhat watching reruns of Married with Children on DVD. I'm using my iPhone.

This seems to be a really bad flu season, which was predicted after a mild one last year. This flu seems to linger for weeks after. I was sick before Thanksgiving and only around Xmas felt normal.

Got one of the nastiest colds of my life the Friday before Christmas...I've been treating it with OTC decongestants, expectorants, and megadosing VItamin C (also having some local honey in all my tea). I'm definitely better, but still coughing a lot.

I have a really bad cold, cough, and achy and sweaty, yet my boyfriend still had to fuck me this morning. He pouted until I said yes. He said his cum has curative properties. The douche even made me swallow his load. Now I'm in bed feeling like crap and he's off to the bar watching football with his buddies.

It took me about 10 days to get over it. Apparently, very contagious. I caught it from my best fried.

Fever, chills, aches, coughing, even fucking diarrhea.

Not flu, but I've had a horrible virus since Sunday. Don't know whether to stand up or sit down in the bathroom - vomiting and diarrhea.

Something worked its way through the office I work in. 15 people and almost everybody had it. I thought I escaped it and on Sunday night my stomach started feeling weird and I called in sick Monday. Was off yesterday. Spent the past few days on the couch watching TV and not eating much. Ate dinner tonight and now I feel like it's about to work it's way through my digestive system.

Have been sick as DOG! Finally just got thru calling my doc and seeing he will call me in Tamiflu. I went and stocked up on cold supplies today.....didn't think I was even going to make it.....thought I would pass out in Krogers. Yeah, dehydration is a big deal....I havent been able to drink Coke....I can handle water a little bit better, but I have to sip on it. My lips are so dry. I didn't eat for 4 days.
Today, at least I have finally felt like I need to take charge.
But, it's my fault for not taking the vaccine.

Yes, my nephew was snotting on all the xmas presents. I washed my hands a million times for all the good it did. Started sneezing on the 26th and by Friday I had a 102 temp. I was really bummed because we had a surprise retirement party for my dad that weekend and after 9 month of planning I left after an hour and had to cancel NYE plans as well.
Finishing up my augmentin on Friday and hope to be feeling better by the weekend. My partner already told his folks we're planning to do like all the celebs and go to the Caribbean next year.

My bf just texted that he went home sick. Fever, chills, aches, sore throat, the whole thing. He was supposed to go the movies with a friend tonight while my FB came over. For all you pearl clutchers, we have an arrangement, so put down the smelling salts, dears. Anyhoo, I can't go to my FB's place because HIS bf is there and they DON'T have an arrangement.
I have a super-hungry hole that was looking forward to getting it fed tonight. Maybe I'll just stop by the gym and see what I can scrounge up in the sauna before I head home to El Sicko. That always works in a pinch, I guess.
Ugh, the best laid plans. If only he'd gotten his flu shot like I did. I hate to be a little told ya so, but I did warn him to get it, but he just kept putting it off. He never listens to any of my demands and warnings, so why should this be any different, right? Ugh, I can't...I just can't.

On Sunday morning I felt fine. By Sunday afternoon I practically couldn't get off the toilet and it's only winding down now, Wednesday. Chills, feeling too warm at times. I don't think it was the flu though. I had a flu shot a few weeks ago and this isn't what I remember from the flu a couple of years ago. It seems more like a bad stomach virus.

I hate discussin the "D"...I was on the potty and started throwing up......couldn't stop, so I had to just throw up on the bathroom, on the floor. I called my doc today, to see if he can call me something in. I don't think I have the strength to get cleaned up (I know) Havent even been able to brush my teeth, cuz I was afraid it would make me throw. It's funny, the female that I got my "best" with in high school.....she come down with it as the same time.....28 Days.

I haven't had a cold since I quit smoking 12 years ago. I sneeze a few times a day and wake up with a stuffed nose every day, though. I need a new Nasonex prescription. (Not as good as Rhinocort, but my insurance won't cover Rhinocort). I haven't had the flu since the 1980s when I started getting free vaccines through my job.
My parents had dogs and they were never sick. They both died after strokes. So I don't know if I've ever been "sick as a dog." If I have a stroke, I guess I'll know.

I get sick around this time every year. Not the flu just a bad cold and chest congestion. I figured out I must be getting it from my nephews when I visit with them at Christmas. Little kids are like walking petri dishes of germs.

Influenza isn't a diarrhea disease. Some people call a gastrointestinal infection a "stomach flu" but they really oughtn't do that. Flu is short for influenza and influenza is a respiratory tract illness. It's better to say "stomach bug" or "stomach virus." And, of course, there's always "the shits," "the trots," "the runs," "the squirts." All are acceptable nicknames for a gastrointestinal infection causing diarrhea.
Just pray you don't have C Diff.

I have not had a fever since 1984. I have beaten Jerry Seinfeld's "no vomit" record.
I even had a protozoan disease similar to malaria that is characterized by recurring fever, but I never had a fever.
I wonder if a fever will mean death to me?
If I get West Nile virus and get a fever, it will be Death From the Nile for me.

I take mega-doses of Vitamin C and haven't been sick since 1993. I was born in 1993 and coming through my mother's vag made me ill.

I'm bumping an old thread to bitch about a nasty cold that I caught from one of the idiots at work. The idiots I work with ALWAYS come into work when they're sick, hacking and sneezing all day, and it pisses me off because they do nothing but get everyone else sick. What really makes me mad is that I don't get sick days since I'm part time, but they do get sick days and don't use them! Therefore when I get sick, I have to take off work and don't get paid for those day.
Ugh! Anyone else sick and want to bitch with me?
