    Riding the Bed, stricken with the Flu, thank God for a lapto

    It is my turn. I normally somehow avoid getting the flu, but this year it got me. So here I am laying in bed, drinking my "Flu Tea" and overdosing on DC.com. My wife took away my wallet when she saw me visiting some Midway usa, and Brownell's.

    Someone care to take me out of my misery?

    Sorry to hear of your strife, sorry to no be able to commiserate with you at this point.

    My 17 yr. old daughter was sick starting wed, home from school th. fri, and my 8 yr old stayed home fri., and he was really red cheeked last night.
    Daughter had a very sore throat but no real trouble with the D word or the V word. (Coming out of both ends)

    Good luck , mend fast.

    I was there a month ago. It may not feel like it but you're going to get better soon. Hang in there.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Get better quick!
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    The flu does not cause gastro problems. It's a respiratory virus. There is no "stoamch flu."

    Had the shot ~60% effective, which means ~40% ineffective.

    I know which category I fell in.

    Are you soon enough to have TamiFlu help?

    Indications
    Tamiflu is for treating people 1 year and older with influenza (flu) whose symptoms started within the last 2 days. Tamiflu can also reduce the chance of getting the flu. Tamiflu is not a substitute for an annual flu vaccination.

    In order to get it, I need to see the MD.. and I HATE doctors, and by the time I get in to see him, I am sure it will be way to late. Besides after my purchase (I have yet to admit to) I can't afford the co-pay!

    Sounds like the possible side effects are worse than the flu:

    Hope you feel better soon.
