poor baby!

have you been drinking plenty of fluids?

taking tylenol for your fever?

nobody waiting on you like you wait on them when they are sick?

shame on those heartless thoughtless uncaring people!

(was that pitiful enough? if not I can do more icon_biggrin.gif )

Zicam and oscillococcinum are wonderful at warding away viruses and speeding up recovery! If you have other flu symptoms that have you thinking N1H1-swine flu you should go get tested because it only reacts to a certain antiviral drug.

Chicken soup. I'm one of those moms who believe that if chicken soup can't cure it, well then you're just gonna die! icon_lol.gif

My kids have a code between them: "Don't tell mom I'm sick or she'll be shovin' that damn soup down my throat!"

(But they DO feel better once I make them eat it!) icon_biggrin.gif

I'm so sorry you are sick icon_sad.gif I hope you are feeling better soon. Curl up on the couch with your favorite blankets and pillows and get lots of fluids and lots of rest. I am a firm believer in chicken soup, but I have found it works much better if someone else makes it. icon_smile.gif
Get to feeling better soon.

Feel better Madge.....like the other gals said, drink plenty of fluids. This darn flu thing is hitting early this year.

Did you get checked for the H1N1 Swine Flu? If you're not better in a day or 2 maybe you should call your doc.

Take care!

I am too sick to make myself chicken soup....when my son was at Pariss Island in the Marines he got a cold during boot camp, and I drew a picture of a bowl of chicken soup for him haha........so I am a big believer in chicken soup too. I never get the flu...last time, was in late 70s in nursing school....so you see I am a bad patient....yeah the fever wont go away, so I may have to get checked if its still here tomorrow............thanks for my pity party....I "cough cough" enjoyed it. Your all the greatest.

It will take a few days to feel better but when you do feel better, don't over do it you still need rest, open a can of soup and nibble on that and take it easy for a few days even (after the fever goes away). you don't want a relasp, I will pray for you and Texas_Roses daughter she is sick also poor baby

Absolutely! The rule in my chicken-soup-is-king house is "when you THINK you feel better, take one more day."

It's easy to fool yourself into thinking you're fine when you're laying around or just sitting in the recliner watching TV (sipping that soup!). But when you get into your normal busy and stressed routine, you find that you're not as "better" as you thought you were.

I'm glad you went to the doctor....when will you have the results of the swab test?

I came home from work this afternoon feeling nauseous and dizzy with the chills.....I'm hoping it's not flu.

What are your symptoms Madge?

We have our first case of flu at school....they won't test around here for the type of flu. But, we have 450 kids. How fast do you think it's going to fly through???
I'm getting my regular flu shot Monday. I'm hoping we'll be considered a high risk group (working in school) so we can get the H1N1 vaccine. I know I'm gonna get the flu one way or the other.... icon_cry.gif
I go to work and it's like diving into an ocean of bacteria!

I started out being dizzy...then diarrhea, then fever and chills. cannot eat.....nauseated....severe head ache....a cough that came from no where and only shows up sporadically, its weird...the doc said preliminary results tomorrow and final in two days...........its secondary bacterial infections that kill people. I had to laugh because she said my lungs sounded good and she never listened...........I figure I would tick her off if I informed her she never took the stethoscope from around her neck like a decoration haha.....I figure if I get worse I will go back and make them listen for real. Fever seems to be backing off now......man I hope this is over soon. Hope you all stay healthy. dizzy and headache and fever was the real bad symptoms for me
