Been out myself for the past 4 days...didn't quite have it as bad (with fever and ER...) but nasty throat and chest pain!

Hope you're feeling better.

I had the Flu jab back in November (it was free from the company I work for...) and have yet to even get a bad cold. Well, I have the sniffles at the moment, and will probably end up with a cold, but certainly not a bad one *Touches wood*...Hope you're feeling better soon, Synth!

I received the flu vaccine (while in the military...required) for 4 years in a row...and all four years I got the flu. Since leaving, I've only had it three times...in more than ___ years.

I avoid the flu vaccine at all costs!

I skipped my flu shot this year too. I skipped the 2 years before that too I think, and didn't get sick, so I don't see a point to it.

I hate doctors...I don't think I'd go just because I had a high temperature and heart rate. I'd at least wait until something started bulging from where it shouldn't lol.

I never get the flu shot...I've really only had the flu once, but that was bad. I felt like I was dieing.

But now even this year living in a dorm I got a couple of mild symptoms for about 24 hours and that was it.

I second that.... I've had it once at work.... that year i had the worst flu i've had, which then morphed into tonsilitis and eventually glandular fever. Fun.

Sweetheart, I now know how you felt. If you felt like I am describing below, you must have really felt crappy.

I was working at one of our plants in another state early last week and got sick with a 102 fever and aches. Ended up going to the urgent care clinic at a local hospital there and was told I had the flu and an upper respiratory infection on top of that. Was prescribed antibiotics for the respiratory infection. I started getting sick Mon and finally stopped running a fever on Fri. This was the worst I have ever felt in my life.

to beat all, I had a flue shot - the docs at the hospital I went to told me this flu which is still going around is a different strain than the one I was vaccinated against.
