Flu loves me this year

8 replies 147 views Edited Feb 16, 2013
Apparently, the cupid decided the best match for me on the 14th was the flu. And that's not all, three times this year, I got fevers, then get better then get sick again and so on. Smiley Sad

So here I am, long weekend and instead of having fun I'm stuck in bed. Argh.

Anyone around here know of someone who got struck twice or more with the flu this year? I'm worried it's just me because I skipped Toronto's annual immunizations on 2012. Smiley Sad



(Note: I am NOT looking for medical advice from forumers, nor do I intend to ask any. I just want to get other's experiences this year.)

This year as in 2013? Or Feb 2012 - Feb 2013? Getting sick 2 times in 1,5 months is very unlucky. I know few people who are sick every month so maybe it's the immunization system or lifestyle that causes frequent sickness. I'm no doctor. 

 

I usually catch a cold once a year ( though I'm absent for school because of fever more often ). I've never taken annual immunizations, just diphtheria tetanus and pertussis vaccines.

It's this year as in Jan. 1, 2013 to today.

It sucks, but I hope it passes soon. I'd hate to miss the long weekend.

Fortunately for me, i usually catch a cold once a year during the winter time for a couple of days. Hope you feel better soon! Advil cold & Flu works really well.

You need to carry some hand sanitizer everywhere now. Just kidding.

 

I think that in my entire life I have only gotten the flu three times. Usually I just avoid sick people and wash my hands often, not all the time, but often.

That is some terrible luck man. Sleep as much as you can and drink lot's of fluids. Popsicles help out. An old saying goes "starve a flu, feed a cold."
