The flu has

Hit EVERYONE in my house! My 14 year old tested positive for Flu B on Wednesday and everyone else is miserable. We are all on TamaFlu but it's not helping much. We all went to bed last night at 5:30 pm and I'm the only one up. I need to clean but I am to weak and tired to do it. How long does this crazy shit last????

No clue. Luckily I have never had the flu and my kids haven't either.

I really hope not....they won't let my youngest have symptoms more than 5 days before they may have to put her in the hospital (she has a ton of complex medical issues). My oldest 2 have been sick since Tuesday..

Normally we don't get it....this one isn't covered under the shot and the last time my youngest was admitted to the hospital for 2 days. It's really bad in our area.

It's hit really bad and so late this year. Hope everyone is on the mend quickly. 

You need to rest, it'll take about 5-7 days to get over.

A week, roughly. I was diagnosed with influenza A. Apparently that's a more fast moving strain. I had a 104 fever yesterday. Fucking miserable. Tamiflu is helping me though, I only took the first dose last night and my fever is down to 100. Hope it starts working for you guys

Honestly with everyone being sick, I don't have time to rest because I am taking care of them too

I hate Tamiflu. It makes it drag out longer for me when I take it.
