For the past 4 days I have been sick with the flu. :( I've been out of work since Tuesday getting over it. And just today it's beginning to subside. It's all over the place in Rhode Island. My mother's bridge club had several people out sick. My boss's wife has been at home sick. Have you had friends or family that have gotten sick?

fun, isn't it?

Last time I had the flu, I didn't eat for nealy four days straight.

My wife keep pressing me to get the flu shot even though I'm not a high-risk individual.

This one of the worst strains I have ever had I felt lousy on Monday and I still have a low grade fever. The worst thing about flu is when I coughed and I would get this sudden pounding headache on my forehead right about my right eye.

75% of the people around here have it/had it already, myself included. It sucks.

Oh, you poor thing! Feel better soon!

My mom and brother had it really bad for about a week. I got it too, but mine only lasted three days. A lot of kids at my brother's school are sick as well.

There's also a nasty cold going around. Nearly everybody got it (including me).

My mom just had the flu recently for practically three weeks straight! I'm very lucky I haven't gotten it yet. I'm surprised, too.

I've has a woman of a flu, along with a cold, a couple of weeks, ago. I had to stay home, all the time. It wasn't fun.

I hate the flu, I had it for two weeks and I was hallucinating at times. I actually thought my brain was getting bigger and bigger and it was going to explode.

Whenever I get flu, it always stays with me for weeks and I end up in bed thoroughly dizzy with a headache.

Pretty much my whole family was sick with the flu on Christmas. I wasn't because I had a flu shot that the university provides for free. However, within about a month and a half, I had a grand total of four colds.
