    The flu sucks

    So, last week I was in Austin, TX, for our national sales meeting and of course, being indoors around 500 other people for a week a sickness was bound to get spread. Sure enough, I fly home Saturday and have a slight cough, but Sunday it's a full blown sick with body aches, sore throat, etc. Here it is Tuesday and I still feel like utter crap. Here's wishing that no one gets what I caught!

    Hope you feel better.
    I had the flu last year and it took a week to heal and with tamiflu.

    Convention Flu is real.

    I had the flu two years ago around Christmas so I know how you feel.

    I hope you feel better soon. If you don't catch it early, there's really nothing much to do but ride it out.

    So sorry to hear this. Did you get a flu shot? I think that has worked for me.

    I never get one...this is more of a cold than the flu, but I hate the body aches. I've slept 12 hours the past two nights and yet I'm still tired and need a 2 hour nap during the day. I hope I feel better tomorrow.
