Thread: Swine Flu

  1. #31
    h1n1 is not as severe as regular flu. and as he said, if you're on this forum, you probably are reasonably fit and are not at high risk. my gf is a nurse and they're not even testing people for h1n1 anymore, they're treating it just like seasonal. and yes, many more deaths occur as a result of seasonal flu... if you've already been exposed to h1n1 there is no reason to get the shot...keep that in mind. i went to a friends wedding couple weeks ago and was in a hotel room for a weekend with someone who was diagnosed w/ h1n1 the next monday, yet none of the others who stayed with us got it...so, don't freak out. the flu is the flu

    The more you fight it the more it kicks your a**... I knew I was comming down with it in september and so I ignored it (like i a good little workaholic). BAD MOVE. I ended up on bed rest, with a 105 temp (while on tylenol) and seeing stuff.

    Hallucinating aside tho, its a little over rated. I mean the fever is the only bad part.

    Yeah I started coming down with it on Tuesay evening. I woke up at like 4am on Thurday feeling like a Mack truck hit me . I forced myself to work cause the other guy I work with took off cause his kids were sick . So after work I drove myself to Cape Urgent Care where I was tested for h1n1 and came back postive. Today the shakes are less and the hot and cold spell are few between and my fever has gone down alot . Work told me they dont wanna see me till 24 hours after my fever has broken

    Thanks. I'm obviously hoping to avoid the virus, but if I get sick I won't have the time off until 01/01/10. I wouldn't want to get canned for being sick!

    There is a really easy homeopathic way to break the fever... I can imagine you are sick of it.

    1. Heat your feet up, like either get under the covers or put your feet in really really hot water.
    2. put a ice cold compress on your forehead
    3. sweat it out, drink fluids

    basically when I get sick I allways do like a deep detox and it allways seems to kick the buggers butt.

    Works for me. But I allways have some one watch me to make sure that i dont like pass out.

    Cool, that's comforting. The Dept of Labor has been keeping its eye on my company anyway, so I don't think they'd do anything stupid.
