Got the Flu!

Postby shoorn » Mon Mar 05, 2018 11:03 am

Well last Thursday I started coughing and getting chills by Friday I was in the grip of the flu. DH has also come down with it so we are trying to manage as we can. Neither one of us is up to going out or doing anything. This is the first that I have been on the computer since Thursday. We got our flu shots and I know that they haven't been effective this year. I was hoping that it would moderate the flu if we got it. No such luck. I am sitting here and can feel the fever still. So I am going back to bed.

Will probably be off line for a few more days.

I'm so sorry you both got it, Susan! I also had it a couple of weeks ago and also got the flu shot. Hope you feel better real soon! Hugs!

Oh Susan, so sorry you're ill!  Hope it passes quickly!  So much for the shots, huh?  I decided not to get one this year.  Take care of yourself and get the rest you need!  (((Hugs)))!

I am so sorry, Susan.  It has been horrible this year.  Luckily DH and I have stayed well (so far). We got flu shots too but like you said, they are a guarantee against the flu.  I hope you feel better soon.

Hope you feel well soon!
When you get angry take a breath and count to ten.  Throw a punch when you get to eight.  Nobody expects that.

So sorry that you BOTh have it at the same time.

I had the flue 2 weeks ago, but no fever, thank-heavens, and DD and DH did not get it!  DH and I both had the flu shot a week before I got it.  I was sick 9 days before I went to Urgent Care.

Last time I had the flue, I was a Junior in High School.  That was 45 years ago, I have had the flu shot almost every year since then because the military insists you have it!

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes. I am slowly getting better - it has been 10 days - but still have a ways to go. I haven't even felt like scraping - mostly just reading. I decided to re-read all the Harry Potter books from the beginning. I am on the last book now. At least they have kept me busy and quiet. DH is still fighting it too. We had to go out to the grocery store Saturday and that wiped us out. We have no endurance at all. 

Still taking it very easy.

Ugh! No fun!! I hope you and your hubby get feeling better soon.  I haven't gotten it yet this year and I did have the flu shot but could still get it. I am hoping not!!
