Oh, yeah. I had my bug last weekend when the site was offline. Stuck at home with no place to go! Then the rest of the family had it. Great stuff, huh? Stay well. It's a lot more fun.

Woke up Tuesday night before work with a scrathy throat. Got home Wed. morn and slept about 14 hrs. Went to work and slept away about 10hrs on Thrusday. Last night I was up 'til midnight (a 26hr day) with about an hour nap in the after noon. Slept until 7:00 this morning. Now I'm so high strung I can't sit still. I'll take in a long walk shortly. But my head is still plugged up quite a bit.

BAD Cold going around Ma./NH. area. I had it last week. Starts off with a little dizziness, then a super high fever from 2-5 days depending on your immune system, hands trembling, chills, etc..., tacks on a nice head cold and cough for 3-5 days after the fever is over.

My brother just left for EOD cold weather training in northern Maine. He was coming down with a cold just before he left.

My whole family has it- me, my wife and son. We are slowly getting better. But this bugger keeps hanging on and on and on. Anyone else having trouble shaking this flu?

No, I am immune. Okay not really, but I'm one of those people that rarely get sick... I can't remember the last time.

Ditto. However, I take a 500mg capsule of Tetracycline every morning for Rosacea...being an antibiotic,could this help me in general against typical Flu attacks??? [:\]

Don't see how. Cold = Virus; Antibiotic > antibacterial

TopCrest, all that smoking and drinking and staying up late couldn't have worn your immune system down any, could it?[;)]

This is the second sinus infection I've had in a year. I think God, the universe, nature, or my body (depending on your religious persuasion) must be telling me that smoking is bad. I'm sick. Started on Friday. Damn it. And: Ban all colds, flus, sinus infections, lung infections, ear infections, and general malaise illnesses. For the children.

There's been a bad cold going around my office for about a month now. Knocks people out for a week or more at a time. I've got my usual bad sinuses, but I take my vitamins, drink lots of water, and never get a flu shot so I should be okay. The flu thing tends to make people a little nervous since our building came back positive on an anthrax test a while back.

My youngest son brought it home from school, gave it to my daughter, gave it to me. It is the worse cold I've had in years. When I cough, it wakes me up in the middle of the night, sometimes 3 or 4 times. Got it for 7 days nows. What a pain.
