Hi ML,
Seems like no matter what you do or don't do, that darn flu has a life of its own. Just be sure to drink plenty of liquids and get some rest. For all those aches and pains, just take tylenol and good luck, sorry to hear you are still sick

Having had the flu, boy I do feel awfully sorry for you. It's almost as bad as seasickness. If I had the remedy, they'd give me the Nobel Prize! Lots of water does help, stay horizontal and accept that it's invading your life. I think the more you can give in to it and stay horizontal, the faster you'll get better.

All good ideas! Also, if you have access to a hot tub, they can do wonders for the aches.

Time. Its the only thing that works. Get your rest. Acknowledge to yourself that you are ill, and treat yourself nicely.

Lots of hot tea and chicken broth. Inhale it (if you can breathe that is) before you drink it. It might not get you better any faster but it will be very comforting. Preferably herb tea.

Thanks to everyone for all the good advice. Unfortunately here it is day 5 and I'm still sick. This is by far the longest flu I have ever had. Again, thanks to everyone.
Everyone....stay healthy!!!!!

I totally agree with you and I am now in week 2. The stomach flu seemed to ease after a week, only to become a head cold. Now my stomach is still upset, my nose looks like rudolph and the sinus headache and heartburn from the sinus drip is miserable. I go to bed by 8 and wake at 1 to try to get up for work at 4:30 a.m. I want to go home to bed. As the snowflakes begin to fall outside my office window, I read on our bulletin board today; Only 33 more days until Spring.
Get well Soon

Mary Lou:
I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I had the darn flu right up to when I left for Tahiti. 10 days in French Polynesia cured me. I would suggest the same thing for you.

I really do hope you are feeling better. This flu is not fun.

Take Care;
Mike
