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.
Then they are idiots. Medical personnel are the first people who should be inoculated. By the way the vaccine is the exact same vaccine they use every year. All they do is change the virus within the vaccine. There's nothing new to test.

Re: F... getting sick

I'm curious if anyone has had swine flu yet? A buddy had it over the summer and was incapacitated for like a week. Then I overheard people talking about milder strains of H1N1 where you get sick but not scary, hospitalized sick.

...and then I came down w/ the weirdest crap I've ever had. No head cold but insane aches and pains and a lot of pain in my lungs, and super serial tiredness of course. It's weird for me cuz I get a couple head colds every year but never the flu. So do I have swine flu? BTW I'm not going to the damn doctor to find out. One of my girlfriends had it over the summer and went in...they basically told her to stay in bed for as long as it takes.

Re: F... getting sick

LOL? I think you missed the point.


But back to what The Goat was saying, the doctors basically told me the same thing. They were pretty sure I dont have H1N1, but they said there are milder versions without fever. But those generally have severe gastrointestinal symptoms. Vomiting, pain, bad poops etc. Lack of energy as well.

It just can be confounded with a stomach flu. Either way H1N1 isnt that big of a deal for most people. You jsut have to rest, etc. Not much different to really do, beside taking Tamiflu. Also based on new CDC suggestions they wouldnt give me Tamiflu! Due to low supply its only for the old, young and chronically ill. I begged, but it didnt help. I shouldve lied and said I had asthma
