The Crud

I'm on round two. I never get sick this much! Missed work today, but, thankfully, my doc can fit me in this afternoon. I've got derby practice starting tonight. First bout is in a month. I cannot be sick!

Misery loves company. Anyone else sharing in my misery?

(Then of course, for those years when you may be exposed to the flu and it could help, sometimes they guess wrong on which flu to immunize against that year)

So really, getting flu shots may only prevent the flu once a decade or so. Since the flu shot is so cheap, and the flu is so awful (the real flu, not a cold, a lot of people get a cold and think "the flu isn't so bad"), its still worth it.

Just because you don't get sick often doesn't mean you have some magical super-protection against the flu, unless your immune system is shot, you aren't supposed to get sick very often.
I don't think I have the flu. I'm not chilling and don't really have any aches. This time, it's a deep, croupy cough. Started having a slightly runny nose this morning. And just a slight headache. I was running a slight ever when I woke up, but I think that has subsided. I'm making sure to get in to see the doctor this time. I had this late November/early December, only my throat didn't get this sore, and it was more in my head. This time, I can feel the heaviness in the top of my chest, and coughing hurts.

Metabolism boosting dinners

strengthen your immune system

natural cold remedies I know, colds are not the flu - but the info on building up the immune system is worth having. Eat more home made sauerkraut, kimchee, yogurt, kefir and so on. Get those bugs to working for you instead of against you.

I am going to operate under the following assumptions:

1) Tequila is a disinfectant

2) If I drink too much of it I could die

3) If I drink enough to kill the germs, but not enough to kill me, I win

4) If the germs can survive more tequila than I can, I'm kind of ****ed anyway and I will probably need medical attention regardless of what I do

I'm feeling progressively worse as the day continues. I don't want to take anything until after I see the doctor though. [/whiny misery]

Sounds like bronchitis. Antibiotics will clear you right up.
