    I was flattened with the flu this weekend. It started coming on late last week but I attributed it to either allergies or the hectic life of traveling every weekend to play rugby. But come sunday night I was shivering more violently than I have ever shivered in my life, while in full sweats and under my covers in bed.

    This is the first time I have ever had the flu and man does it suck. I couldn't look at anything bright or my head killed me, I tried to get on here but couldnt stand to look at the computer. I just stayed in bed from saturday night til now pretty much.

    Being sick - sucks period. Hope you feel better soon. Take it easy for a few days until you are completely recovered. Don't try to get back into everything at once.

    i had a VIOLENT flu for 4 days back in feb...i was not out of bed other then to shit and throw up(usually at the same time)...the same time was when I had forgot then I bought a brand new 24 pack of coke to take to work, and left it in my truck and it had gotten to about 4degrees outside for those 4 days. So, you can imagine the mess I had to clean up.

    It was actually bad enough once that I was hallucination, I probably should have gone to the hospital at that point.

    Yep I feel ya man. I got sick this weekend too. Started with a scratchy throat all day saturday and im just gettin over it now. Sunday night was the worst- from freezing cold with a fleece and down blanket in bed, to sweating like mad with no covers on all night back and forth. No fun. Missed a few days of classes now too so that aint gonna be fun to catch up on. I just found out today that one of my friends that I was hangin out with on saturday night got sick and went to the doctor today.... turns out he has swine flu.:eek:

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I kind of wonder if me and my wife got H1N1. We were really sick half the day Sunday, all day Monday, and today I feel a little better, definitely getting over it. We were both throwing up like mad. I haven't been that sick in years.
