Hang in there. Hope you feel better soon.I just started to feel something coming on.. It started with a tightness in my chest followed with wheezing. Usually with the h1n1 it takes anywhere from 5 to 7 days after being exposed for symptoms to show up. Fever and body aches can be treated with nsaids, Tylenol or ibuprofen and lots of fluid. Elderly, under 2 and pregnant women are most susceptible due to compromised immune systems. There are anti virals such as tamiflu that can help. A humidifier to help liquid secretions and vapour rub can help with breathing. Most importantly, wash your hands. Regardless if it's the antibacterial stuff or not, the physical scrubbing motion with warm water kills more germs than anything.
Read that in the local news today. Quite a few in my city. I think the last time I received a flu shot was 20 years ago. I'm considering it but I also don't like all the crap they put in it too. My wife is allergic to them. We think the daughter had it but over a week later we are fine.The toll in Texas is now up to 13. Time to get the shot...
I EXPECT to see you in June so take care of yourself.Well of course I got it from my wife Nurseholly but in good hands. It is really fast moving and went thru the usual symptoms and now it's more of a upper respiratory infection with gravely breathing, coughing with mucus and blood mix. I'm treating with the usual over the counter stuff and lots of tea (honey, cinnamon, other natural goodies). Not a good way to start a vacation.
