My whole family has the flu. This really sucks. It feels like my whole body has extreme arthritis. The weather has been clear for a few days but riding doesn't even sound appealing. Anybody else down for the count?
This is some serious shit: Public Health Emergency in Boston
I heard earlier today that police are investigating a 4 year old's death last night as potentially caused by the flu.
If you haven't been vaccinated, please get it asap.
I flew back from NYC on new years eve and came down with it within hours of landing at SFO. Bed-ridden sick for a good 5 days and I still have a cough. I was going to get a flu shot, but just never got around to it. Seems to be worse on the east coast so far; no one else around here I know has the flu.
I am in Philly for business this week and all I can think about is getting the flu.
my name is Houston
Got my shot for the first time this year based on reports that it was gonna be gruesome. I've read that the shot this year is particularly effective - researchers "guessed" the strain pretty accurately, apparently.
Getcher flu shot. Herd health and whatnot. Best of luck to those beplagued.
Edit: I've been telling everyone here in my practice (psychology not medicine) to get the shot, especially our receptionist, who comes face-to-face with everyone who walks in the door. She refuses to get one because "I've never had the flu before." Pretty rock-solid logic, huh?
I told her that I've never been infected with HIV before, so I'm going to go out and share some needles with junkies.
She didn't get it.
