What do you hate the most about having the flu?

Or a cold?

I hate it when my nose is stuffed up and my throat and everything is so dry from breathing through the mouth. Finally you fall asleep and then you wake up in the middle of the night, your tongue is so dry it feels like sandpaper. UGH!

  • I hate the fevers where I'm shivering and I think I've been asleep for hours and it's really only been 15 minutes. I just got over the flu and it was horrible. I had to drive from Dallas to San Antonio feeling like dog do do.

  • well for THIS awful sickness i have right now the worst part is being PREGNANT and not being able to use and abuse the many wonderful medicines out there that make you sleep! The being tired and not being able to sleep part sucks, and falling asleep with your mouth open because you can't breathe then waking up and peeling off two layers of your lips.

  • Knowing my kids are eating nothing but convenience foods they can heat in the microwave and destroying my kitchen in the process, but being too sick to do anything about it.
