Quoting *Lindsey Loves Joey*:" Oh I hope you feel better too btw! Never had any real flu. So many people use the term flu for a head cold but I have been told the actual flu in its varying forms is alot worse."
Thanks! Hope you got some answers and relief.
Yes, the real flu makes you want to die. I was hospitalized for a day with the first time I got it and out of work for over a week. Since I got the flu shots after that time (was stubborn before and always refused them since I was not in a high risk category) the following times have been more mild. Always get the shots! They may not prevent you from getting it, but at least they lessen the severity of it. I found out over 20,000 people die each year in the US from the flu!
Anyway, I hope they were able to tell you what you have and get you some meds. It's torture to be sick in the summer. Take care.
