Meh. I'm kicking it old-school, using my immune system. Hasn't failed yet.

I'm using my immune system as well. It just happens to have been educated to look for this years most likely strains.

Mine is uneducated, but effective in its barbaric way.

Sure you did. Just have a hankering for brains now, otherwise doing just fine.

It's floating around my office and among my social circle so I always serve hard alcohol at gatherings at both the office and parties.

I read a story yesterday about a 17-year-old who died from complications of the flu. That complication? A staph infection on top of pneumonia. Gah.

Are there no editors?  Are there no proofreaders?  I despair.

Influenza turned my vaccinated fever-cooked spouse into a zombie.  She couldn't even remember her own name.  (She couldn't walk either, so my brains were spared.)

I've always had some kind of bizarre immunity to the flu.  I very rarely get it and it never lasts more than one day.  I'll see if I get it now since I met my stepmother for lunch yesterday and she was coming out of it.

St_Francis_P: Meh. I'm kicking it old-school, using my immune system. Hasn't failed yet.


I haven't caught flu in 25 years. My immune system is great on flu.

Sinus infections....not so much but better in recent years.

Caught something last weekend. Nausea and   diarrhea still.  Lost fourteen pounds, and due to not eating for five days,  developed a bad case of gout in my right ankle. The antibiotics haven't helped my appetite any.  One of my buddies is coming over with some percocets and a case of Hamm's. I'm a man. And a Farker.

/In Oklahoma, so there's no reason to go outside anyway.
//Sincerely hope none of you catch this. If so, get well soon.

That's why you NEVER go to the hospital.

I got something in early December. Sore throat, cough, fatigue, headache that was bad for a week but lingered in some form or another for another two weeks or so. But I only had a slight fever a couple of days on and off. That wasn't the flu, right?

Nope. Flu gives you a higher fever, muscle aches, and LOTS of coughing. Most people who think they got the flu, didn't.

Same here and I am still not quite right. Lots of fatigue going on.  It was mostly coughing and a headache at its worst, but I haven't slept 12+ hours given the chance in ages and now all I want to do is sleep since it started.

Yeah, the fatigue was awful, and a consistent low-grade headache around the forehead and temples. Ugh. I couldn't sleep well at all.

Yeah, from what people describe the flu as being, I don't think I've ever had it.

I'm keeping my gun nearby at all times. If that damn flu comes anywhere near me I'm gonna shoot it.
 
2013-01-05 06:54:18 PM
Wife and I are battling it now. We and the kids all got our shots as usual. Its not as bad as without the shots but its still noticeable. Local doctors are telling us the shot isn't protecting well against this year's  Influenza A strain and that its bringing in tons more people than usual, even those vaccinated.

Tried daily guanefesin and lemonade/citrate supplements? Works well to keep my UA levels down, usually.

I am vaccinated by God through the power of prayer.

No shiat.  That shot only improves your odds, it doesn't protect you completely.

AlwaysRightBoy: I hoping to catch the Norovirus  that's coming over from Europe.


I got Norovirus two years ago when it was going around Northern Virginia.  It's an illness so insidious I simultaneously threw up and shiat my pants in a Metro station and I had to be carried out on a gurney.

It is terrifying to be so sick you can't prevent yourself from shiatting your pants.  I prided myself up until that point that in my entire adult life, I had never vomited where I didn't want to, and I had never shiat my pants.  Then in one terrifying day, both records were shattered.  I felt fine in the morning and I was in the hospital that night.

I'd also like to eternally thank the group of teenagers who took pictures of me collapsed on the floor of the metro station, covered in puke, while helpfully pointing out "Dawg shiat himself!  Got shiat all over!"  That was helpful.  I really appreciate it.

I work directly with the public. I handle objects handed to me by the unwashed masses and share close quarters with at least a dozen strangers every day. I only get the flu or a cold once every couple years but I will be pleased if I make it through this flu season without breaking my current streak.

My son had it just before christmas. woke up with a 103 fever, wife brought him to the docs and he got some tamaflu. lasted the weekend and it's gone.
My daughter got the flu shot at school so she was good.


/hoping it stays away now.

We need to name flu pandemics like we do hurricanes and tropical storms.

I'll with the first 6 ironically named after my ex girlfriends: Alicia, Jill, Pamela, Patricia, Claire, Pamela.

We should ban viruses. They do nothing good for us.

I try to avoid Autism, so HELL NO to the vaccine.

You guys all are probably already Ass-burgers so it won't matter.

Copious amounts of vodak is as good as a flu shot, right?

I have it now. Fever, aches, congestion, general misery. On day 2 alone. Husband, who NEVER gets sick for more than a day, has had it for a week and is just coming out of it.

We and kids got flu shots, to boot.

/kids are fine

Actually, the correct answer is "more guns" because the less people alive, the less likely you are to become infected.

About 127 million doses of flu vaccine have been distributed this year from the 15 million doses produced for this season.

Maths.
 
2013-01-05 07:40:32 PM
Buh buy? I don't think so. The one time I took a flu vaccine I was the sickest I have ever been in my life. I thought I would die. I've never had another vaccine of any kind and I haven't had the flu. I may get the flu but I will survive without having toxic waste products like Thimerosal injected into me. You people are so scared and brainwashed it's pathetic.

Sounds more like Norovirus,  There is a particularly mean one going around.
