Have you or anyone in your family had it? We have not been affected and hoping it stays that way fingers crossedbut the media is seriously wearing on my nerves. I'm having fear of the flu anxiety and I have NEVER even had the flu! I just worry for my son who has to go to a germ factory (school) everyday. UGH!

 Hubs has it - he was in bed for 3 days.  So far the rest of us have avoided it.

I'm sorry to hear that:(

I hope he feels better soon and the rest of you don't get it.

This is a snapshot for NJ, on CBS.com


New Jersey: Hospital emergency room visits by patients with flu-like symptoms in New Jersey are double the number seen at this time last year. Two children have died, both with underlying medical conditions that made them more vulnerable. Flu activity is highest in central and northeast portions of New Jersey.

Not yet,but right now im feeling kinda yucky. I feel it in ,my sinuses and my stomach has been tipsy turfy and I've had a slight headache all day.  I had the flu about 12-13 years ago and it was bad. I was in bed for 3 days and every part of me hurt.

Never had it before, but got it this year ...it was brutal, felt like crap for three weeks. Recommend MUCINEX DM, IBUPROFEN and Safetussin.
