Nowadays, many people are coming down with some kind of flu, sore throats. My teacher's student and her daughter have also come down with this kind of flu. Mine started yesterday. I came down with a sore throat during the day and I didn't know it would get so serious, I even went to play badminton. After that, when I came back home, I was feeling hot and cold at the same time. This morning, I vomited and had a slight fever. My mother took me to my doctor and she diagnosed me with stomach flu and also an infection in the throat. Geez~ I guess my immune system is not that good after all.

Hiya Judge, Having not had a bad Cold for a long time now I went and got two mini Colds one after the other. However I put my remedies to work and kicked them out of my system even though the effects lasted three or four Days after. Now crossed fingers for no more. We have all got good immunity most times except against nasty Colds all of us get these and how.

Yea colds do get us in very bad moods. For me, when I get colds I will get really irritated.

Hiya Judge, Not only in very bad moods but for us Moms also it is not that easy to just go off to bed so we are there many times half gone with Fever and sore throat doing the things that need to be done before we can even think of lying down say for the Afternoon. No one wants to be ill with colds either they just happen and that´s it let´s hope they invent something better to help us get over them more quickly.

Flu is a disease which is contagious, you must stay away from everyone who has it. cover your nose and mouth always so that you don't come to direct contact with people suffering from flu. And you know what? there is no medicine for flu so far. You must try the natural ways to reduce the effects of flu and sore-throat, good that you have seen a doctor, but what i feel is although we go to a doctor we need to take care ourselves too by keeping our body fight with flu. try drinking milk in which pepper is mixed, this is a very good remedy for sore-throat and always include garlic in your food so that flu stays away from you. the best anti-virus food for flu is garlic. do take care of yourself and don't go out when you are not well.

hi judgeironfist I am sorry to hear you are feeling so miserable Its no fun having the flu so y esterday when I was at my doctors for the rash on my leg, I asked if it was too early for flu shots. He said not at all, I will get the nurse to give you so wait right here. It was not at all painful and this will assure me as a diabetic that I am not going to get the flu or bronchitis either. these are harder on anyone who has a diminished immune system. JUdge do drink lots of fluids and load up on vitamin C too also when I had a throat infection I found gargling with hot salt water helped stop the pain also drink ice water as it does really stop that horrid pain.A nice hot bowl of chicken noodle soup will help too and it really does work. good luck God bles

i teach kids and they're carriers of germs and all sorts of viruses. thank God I haven't gotten sick yet though i deal with my students really closely. anyway, one got the flu, and the others followed shortly after...the worst was when one got conjunctivitis. anyway, it really helps that i have a strong immune system, i take my vitamins and drink lots of water everyday. hope you feel better soon.:)
