With a stopped-up nose and the voice sounds like a crow and a lot of sneezing I do not feel well, I probably have some fever and my head are banging on me. I have catch the flue. I do not feel ok, but still there are things have to be done. Take it in my own time frame today. Only the must do things, like make dinner, dishes. When I have a flue, I try to keep me warm, drick hot tea and use some med for lower my fever and get rid of the headace. I also need some nose spray to keep my nose free. But I also actually go to work... I know, that is not OK, but I have never been home any sickday, so that is why I never stay home. I go to work do what I should and then feel god with it. But yes, I know I should not. Anyway, how do you recover your self when you catch a flue?

i dont know if you call this a flu, but i think i got it from you... i have fever, and the food tastes bitter, my nose is not doing his job, as i am breathing from my mouth, i have a terrible ache, and i feel cold. my back is aching too. i drink paracetamol every 4 hours to keep my fever down, and yes i am taking vitamin C. drink lots of juices. and for that nose, before going to sleep, rub a generous amount of liniment or effiscascent oil on your feet then put socks on. it'll make you feel better, that nose will open up. i just havent done that last night coz i cant find where my kids put the efficascent oil. i still have this terrible headache. hope you're feeling well now

Well jayrene...I did not take care of myself yesterday. I went to work and it was a bit hard, but still. I have not yet had a sick day ever since I started working so I did not stay home this time either. And today, I have been helping my family with charaty work. We have two second sale a year and today was this years first one. My father put me to sale textiles of different sorts. I broaght in about $150 but I did not feel very well. Even my sister asked why I did not stay home and was sleeping. I got some great med from my sister and it has helped me with my bad cough that I have. As You I have headace and it has also got to my ears. My head feel like a emtpy fotball....I am tired, my eyes dropps...and I also feel week in my body. The food or coffee do not taste at all. So why did I do this and not stay home, you might wonder. I like to help, the money we get it goes to the children in our community for sports activity. And I feel it be very important that the kids have some more lucrative things to do, than stay out and do criminal activities. And I guess, working feeling this way is not making it better...I guess you can call me a workaholic....*LOL* Hope You feel better, and did take better care of You than I did of me....lol

im a little bit better now, thanks for asking... i hope you are too. no more fever for me, i took a quick bath tonight as my husband said i smell already... lol the meds worked for me. i still havent found my mentholated oil, for the footrub, it will do my nose good. but i can breath okay now except for that once in a while stop up and sneezes. the only thing that hurts me now is my head, sometimes i get this terrible headache, maybe its because i always sleep late. but if i try to lie down on bed early i cant make myself go to sleep so i stay in front of my computer till i get sleepy and its always almost morning here when it happens. tomorrow, sunday, i hope there will be no more rain, so i can go outside and breath some fresh air... will try to walk a little.

Waking up this sunday morning at 4:30 feeling a bit better, but not quit OK. I am going for work and see how it goes. . I have not had fever at all during this flu, but I seldom have fever when I am sick. The head I said feel like an empty fotball, and the sounds around you seems to be louder than usuall. My son had to take town the sound on his TV last night, since I got some headace from it and my ears got bad effected. I do not have pain in my ears...but...it shore has effected the hole head. I am shore it will feels even better tomorrow...by the way, we have had a warm and sunny saterday, and it seems that sunday will be the same.

Hi there anetteh, It will help if you eat half raw warm egg mixed with honey. Have some lemon tea too. But if i don't have one of those i go across the street to buy Decolgen and make a warm tea to drink it and get a rest in bed. LOL Happy posting always! oxox'dian from bali island.

thank You for Your tip. However, it would probably not have worked on this flu, I needed real med and got it from my doctor. I am better, but still not god enough to have the strengt to sing, talk god...It was a long running flu....however, I am suspisious of this one, since I had the same last srping time to...it might be some allergy. I guess, I should have stay home for some days and just take the rest and not do what I did, and work, work and work...but I am a very stubern person, never had any sickdays yet, and I am if I can not having one before the day of my pension. that is my goal...lol

I am that type who don't like to take medicine for common sicknesses. What I do when I have a flu is to take lots of liquid (water, fruit juices and soups) and take as much rest as possible. I might still go to work if I need to but I will definitely reduce my workload. Usually, such therapy works for me. When it doesn't, then I have to take some medicine coupled with anti-biotic and complete rest.

Well, my friend, I need to see a doctor before I can follow any prescription. And to get a doctor the first days is not easy, they only say I should take some fever killers and wait to see....if it is not getting any better I should call again.....

I'm also having a flu now, and maybe fever. I took some medicine, and sore throat became better. I don't have a good way to cure flu. I don't feel very painful is just because I caught a cold frequently. So I have have antibody to the flu.
