If you get the flu this year ...

Post by JM1776 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 2:40 pm

... take it seriously.

My temperature yesterday reached 105.1 F. I'm out of work today and they're not thrilled, but it's probably better than them finding me slumped over my keyboard.

This strain is particularly virulent and this year's flu shots evidently afford no protection from it.

My ribs are killing me from the coughing and sneezing. I feel like I've been worked over with a two-by-four.

But this is not about me. If you have even a SENSE that it could be the flu, hit your GP or urgent care immediately.

I'm a big, strong dude and it whupped my ass. Don't risk yourselves.

That is all.

I take a pain killer more than twice and I become immune to it. Sucks. #-o

Actually, almost everyone is resistant to viruses and bacteria. It's just a matter of whether your resistance manifests itself with symptoms and/or systemic strain or not.

And the plural of "flu" is "flu", not "flues".
