Flu

as in inFLUenza. Yup, I've got it. 103.2 temp since yesterday...
Needless to say, if I don't respond to your pricing requests, it's not my fault.

I'm tired of sleep. This is the first time I've been out of bed since Saturday night.

Re: Flu



Sorry to hear Chris, sucks being sick.

I think I spoke to soon last night after responding to the flu thread I woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather. It's not full blown cold yet, and damn it I'm going to fight it.

If I do ending up getting sick I guess I can't complain, I havenít had a cold in over a year and a half.

Re: Flu

Advil or Aleve for fever and sore musles (just check with your doc if ok).
Yes, sleep as much as you can, take time off, take naps - SLEEP.
Tea, water - drink lots even if you're not thirsty. Fever depletes your body's fluid.
Sleep some more.
Don't forget to eat. Bland mushy stuff if stomach can tolerate.
Sleep.
Buy a fluffy pillow and a warm fuzzy blanket to live in for the next week and a half. Send someone to get it - you won't regret it.
Now sleep again.
If you're feeling better within a week, you're still not better. It takes about a week and a half for your body's immune response.
Sleep.

I had this a few months ago. It sucked. For a week and a half, I was feeling better on two occasions, only to wake up and feel worse than before.

Re: Flu

At my age & having lived in Western Cdn all these yrs incluiding a lot of outdoor winter sports--------believe me I have seen a lot of flus come & go.

To those that do not have it yet (tap wood in my case) get the flu shot even if it is not PERFECT. Thoroughly wash your hands properly & often, do NOT become chilled at home, outdoors or at work. Do not try to be the mocho man in walking around bare headed when it is cold to snowing, close up the neck of a jacket when outside, make sure the cold is not going at the ankles or up the legs, or wrists & hands.

Do not weaken your system by parting untill the wee hrs & do not become stressed at work or home. You have a hot tub ----- then stay clear of it for a while. Someone around you coughing, blowing nose continually or hacking then try to get clear of them.

You drive a cage in this time of yr then toss in extra clothing to keep you warm under normal conditons ---- more so then what you started out on. In my truck is a long & much warmer coat I used when surveying, along with extra socks of thicker wool in a pair of winter boots, to even an oversized pair or warm pants to fit over what I presently wear, another heavy oversized sweat shirt, numerous toques & hats to at least three pair of gloves & latter are a pair of snowmovile ones & a few thick wook towels that can be used like winter mufflers. Crumbs there is even a good sleeping bag, survival blanket & an ex-army wool blanket. Simply so many yrs of living in the Mtns (as I still do) & knowing what it is like to find myself cought in a snow storm & no way out or place to stay. So I can bundle up in the cab or dress up properly & hike it some 2 to 6 miles to a place were I can obtain help, meals, sleep, etc.
May sound a bit extreme, BUT I have been forced to use the above more then once when travelling from one spot to another.

Re: Flu

Really sorry to hear it, NH.

Did you get a flu shot? Not criticizing if you didn't, just want some data to see if it failed to work.

Cure ? Chicken soup, of course.
