Any of you been diagnosed with it this season? It's going around so bad down here and I'm going to get my flu shot tomorrow since I'm over my respiratory infection/sinus infection finally. I am paranoid I'm going to get it before my shot takes effect though :/ If you've had it, how bad was it?

No, but I was pregnant in 2009 when it went around, and ughh that was stressful.

We had it in 2009 when it was going around. For a month on and off we were not feeling well. We just rested when we felt yucky.

 I got it in 2009 when it went around and I was the sickest I've ever been but I was fine within a couple days and survived :)   I don't get flu shots....there's no guarantees with them anyway.

Ugh I had it a few years back, was pregnant and delivered just as I was recovering. That crap was horrible. I felt like death. Try pushing when you can't breath through your nose and everything already is achy.

I was also quarantined from all of the other delivering mothers.

No.
My mom works at the hospital though and she's said 10 people have already died from it, most of them healthy.

I was going to get it right before thanksgiving, but because I had new insurance I couldn't get in to a doctor, and Walgreen was about to charge me $200 for it. By time I could get in to my doctor, I had a respiratory infection and then a sinus infection, followed by a uti so I had to wait 72 hours after antibiotics were finished :/
