  • Not the big one.... I had a cold that took about five weeks to stop coughing. How about you?

  • We've been battling it for over a week now. The first two days I thought for sure I was going to die and I'm no baby lol. I couldn't get off of the couch and dh had to help me to the restroom because I was so weak, third day was good I could function again but still achey. I just have a residual cough and runny nose to deal with now.

  • I have not been sick at all this winter. My girls caught something that made them sick for like 2 days and now there better. I hope it stays this way cause ive had the flu so bad at one time that i had to go to the ER and get fluid sucked out of my lungs and my temp was at 104
