The Swine Flu Has Invaded My Body!

This strain of the flu causes much suffering, so if any of you readers have the opportunity to receive the vaccine, I would suggest you take it.  There is no cure for the Swine Flu other than time, rest, plenty of liquids, the human immune system, and over the counter product such as Mucinex and Nyquil.

  1. Dear Readers,

    I just wanted to let everyone know the symptoms I had with this virus. They were the classic flu symptoms of fever, body aches, and fatigue. What was different for me was a very sore throat and the loss of my voice. After about a week I began to cough up blood with phlegm, and it really scared me, so I went to the doctor. The doctor told me that I had hacked my throat raw and that I needed to take it easy. So I have been resting and my throat is no longer sore. I still don't have my voice completely back.

    If any of you get this flu, please take good care of yourself. It takes about two weeks for the body to overcome the virus.


  2. I feel very worried about you. I hope you get better very soon. By the way your posts are never boring. And sometimes they are somewhere between funny and thought provoking. For example, your flu post made me feel tremendously empathic and concerned. Take care. charlotte

  3. Sorry to hear you caught this flu! Get better!
