Anybody had the flu yet?

I came down with it on Thursday, it was a 24 hour bug. I dont know where I got it from, but there it was whipping my butt. At least it was only a 24 hour thing...and no sore throat either, just stomach and aches.

  • My WHOLE family had that just over a week ago and lucky me caught it yesterday ugh! I am soooo glad it was only a 24 hour bug though. I don't know if my stomach could have handled it much longer.

  • The horrible stomach virus going around the entire country? Yes. The flu? No, as we have received our flu shots.

  • hill, that does sound different. This was a throw up lay down get the chills, get up go get sick again, lay down get the chills over and over thing. I dont have any stuffy head symptoms at all from it.

  • DD had a 12-hour stomach thing, vomited a few times and that was it. No other form of the flu (influenza) or other stomach bugs. No flu shots either, as they don't prevent the flu, they just lessen the symptoms if you happen to get one of the few strains it covers.
