Oh yuck!  That sounds horrible!  No flu in my household yet, though a lot of people I know have had it.  It’s a bad one this year, and I guess the shot was estimated at abou 10% effectiveness.  Hope you don’t have any respiratory complications!  Glad you are back.

Glad you're on the mend, Rob.
Flu should know better than to mess with you.
I learned first-hand all about pneumonia last month.
I learned I don't want that again.
I'm going to get the vaccine soon.

Glad you're coming around.

I caught something two weeks back and stayed home from work a couple of days.  Initially it was slow going but eventually things turned around and I felt much better.  One nice thing I learned was that my wife really loves me.  You know that whenever the mailman came by and headed toward the door, my wife ran out to meet him? I could hear her excitedly saying' My husband is home! My husband is home!"  She's a love alright.

Yep. Nothing to mess around with.
Especially if you're getting chills and/or have a fever.

Rob, sorry to hear about your affliction. But I am sorrier still that you have a frame of reference for the taste of chicken poop.

Sounds like you may have developed pneumonia Rob. See a doctor. Pneumonia is no laughing matter. I've had it once and, like Queequeg, don't want it again. I can see how it kills people.

Current research suggests that the flu may predispose to secondary bacterial infections.  Time to call your Dr.

dbrchett I know the taste of chicken poop because as a child my grandpa's favorite mulch for his gardeb was chicken poop and while helping spread it I got some in my mouth its a taste you never forget.

Went to the doc and was told that I have a sinus infection but since I had anti biotics a 2 weeks ago he won't give me more.He did offer me lyrica for my body ach's but that is one drug I'll never take.

Have you ever used a Neti pot?  Great for sinus infections.  If you don't have one you can use a saline solution, (Ocean ), to irrigate your nasal passages.  Google it.
