Damnit. Now I feel like I'm coming down with something today. Post nasal drip, scratchy throat, mild headache. I think you got me sick, Matty.

This reminds me why I like to stay away from people from December through March. I'll take 2 weeks of the common cold, 5 days of the flu before I'll take a 12-hour stomach virus.

Time to go get more hand sanitizer.

I am not a germaphobe or anything but I love that Purell shit. We had to buy that stuff for my daughter when she went to kindergarten and I fell in love with it. I use it everyday all day.

Re: F... getting sick

I am a certified germaphobe and I go through a couple of the big bottles of Purell a month. If you can't get to it, or haven't washed your hands thoroughly, as long as you don't touch your food, or put your fingers in your mouth for any reason, your chances of catching the stomach virus (medically known as Norovirus) go way down.

The problem is eating out -- you can still catch it if someone who has it handled your food. I also try to cut down on eating out during the sick season.

That's exactly how I feel, but I've been really tired too. Yesterday when I got home from work I went right to bed and slept until about 7:30, I got up and got something to eat and went back to bed around 10:30. I feel a little better today but I'm still tired.

Re: F... getting sick

I am now just getting over an upper respiratory infection that is now on Day #13.

UGH.

I missed a week of work (paid, luckily), but honestly I would've rather been working than at home feeling THAT crappy.

Re: F... getting sick

I've been overdosing myself all week on Cold-eeze, Airborne, and Zicam.

I've gotta say that while I'm still a little under the weather, it hasn't blown up into a full blown, miserable cold.

Re: F... getting sick

Matty, I asked the pharmacist about Zicam -- if you take a one-a-day vitamin with zinc, it has the same effect.

That'll save you about 10 bucks, but any way you can boost your immune system it'll shorten the duration and lessen the severity of a cold.

So there you go. Free advice from the germaphobe.

Re: F... getting sick

So I got the flu already. It freaking sucks.

I felt a bit under the weather on Monday, so I took off. I felt fine and worked all mid-week. Thursday afternoon I started feeling like shit. Friday morning I had like a 101 fever and the works. Drs say flu.

wtf, flu season hasnt even fully hit. Last two years I never got the flu. This year two or three people already had the flu at my work. That plus the hysteria of H1N1, is making this winter season really interesting. Just FYI, the doctor and nurse I saw said they would never get the H1N1 vaccine because of the lack of research.

skip the airborne and go with nature's way umcka if it's a cold

sambucol if flu

I've knocked both out in a matter or 2-3 days.. getting through the flu in 3 days is an amazing feeling

Re: F... getting sick

I've had a cold for about a week now and I've grown rather sick of it. My immune system is still pure and utter shit from all of the antibiotics I took for lyme disease, so I expect to have this another 1-2 weeks. ugh.
