I've been sick with this stuff for over 3 weeks now with no sign of it letting up.

Severe Congestion
Swollen/Scratchy throat
Muscle aches
Puking (here and there)

It's not bacterial, doc said to look out for yellow/green snot.

Anyone had this? I don't know when it will end.

I started with it on Feb 28th, and I still have the "cough" every night.

I think it is a 3-4 week deal.

i had it. most of my work did too. i was out of work a few days with fever, then coughing and congestion for 2 weeks. then fever again, then it tapered off.
i'm still coughing a little every now and then. some people got bronchitis. others had a bit of puking.
it's all over though, indiana to florida, everywhere between i imagine.

I started coming down with it Friday night.
Spent all weekend in bed with a fever and chills.
Called in sick yesterday and today, I can't breath, I threw my back out during one coughing attack, my throat is scratchy.

Fucked up last weekend (I wanted to go dirt bike riding) and it's going to fuck up this weekend (want to go dirt bike riding).

Worst part about is that it takes about 4 weeks for this shit to run its course.

I wish people would stay home when they are sick.

These past two years have made me lose all faith in what used to be my iron immune system. Two years ago I got a touch of flu in the fall and a bad case of bronchitis in the winter. This last year I got a bad cold in the fall and two more in the winter. WTF. Those winter illnesses lasted a good month each before all symptoms subsided.

First time that I have ever called out of work.

I've been sick for almost three weeks now. I'm over it.

I had it at the end of Jan. for 2-3 weeks, then just got the damn thing again. Wife unit says this seems to be a common pattern this spring.

I don't think I've even had a serious cold or flu for ten or fifteen years. That's what I get for: going out in public/ to the dentist/ on an airplane/ to high-altitude he!! Colorado/ to high-altitude he!! New Mexico/ not drinking enough beer/ working out in cold weather.

Hit me about a month ago. Haven't been that sick in years. Laid half our office out. Still fighting a bit of a cough but nothing like what it was.

Haven't gotten a flu shot in 10 years, and never had the
flu once, despite having three school age children and
traveling a great deal.
