Any Flu
« on: January 23, 2012, 04:17:01 AM »
Has anybody caught the flu or a cold this season? 

It dawned on me today that I don’t know of anybody getting sick this winter!  That’s pretty amazing.  Knock on wood, no sniffles here either.   I wonder if the warmer winter is affecting the flu bug.

No flu but I just am getting over one of the worst sinus infections I have ever had.  I got my flu shot as I do every year.

Maybe you are seeing a bit of herd immunity after the greater emphasis on flu vaccinations following the swine flu outbreak. 

Or maybe it's coming to your area!  We have warmer winters, and that don't bother the little influenza viruses none.

Apparently flu has been eliminated this year to give the networks enough time to cover debates and primaries (just cannot get enough of them....NOT!).  I don't think I have seen flu mentioned much at all this season :?.

Oh that's right.......

Been coughing up crap for over a week now.   I bought some dayquil Saturday a week ago when it hit.   Finished it Friday night riding 4 wheelers to stay awake and keep a helmet on.   It is still in my nose and lungs today.

Wife and I had the same thing since New Years.  Musinex, Afrin, Day and Nightquill and Asprin (not all at once :-D just as needed to be able to continue working...no sick days for the self employed).  Feel almost normal today.

Same with me worst ever sinus infection,  but no flu shot. I tried traditional meds nothing worked so I made up an essential oil rub and used a neti pot and finaly got it under control.
