Yes, pickle_breath, I caught the flu. Sadly, I caught it almost a week before I wanted to. This sucks.

Oh, wow, sick season again.. *huggles* Feel better soon, Goo! I can't remember the last time I've ever had the flu, but I know it must really suck. *lots of love*

I may have to see a doctor, actually. I am not that sick, but I've had a flu shot not long ago, so I shouldn't be having flu-like symptoms unless they're symptoms of something other than the flu.

I've been told that you can get the flu shot and then get the flu shortly after.. I can't remember the full explanation of that, but, yeah, a doctor's visit would probably be the best think to do =P

As I said, get well soon ^_^ Lots of rest and fluids, hehehe

Awww, sick again are we? Feel better soon, and eat the soup! It really works, I'm telling you...heh, but if you're really worried about scurvy still....*hugs* Get better quickly, ok?

As I told Caity, considering I've had a flu shot I should probably get checked out. Either the shot is bad or I have something other than the flu, and a lot of diseases start with "flu-like symptoms".

Ah, but flu shots only work for a few of the most common strains, or rather what the administration believes WILL be the most common strains. There are so many strains of flu that there's no way one could be immunized against all of them.

Which is why I've never bothered with flu shots. Always figured with my luck I'd just wind up either contracting it from the shot itself because my immune system can be weird, or I'd be lucky enough to run into someone who has some strain that hasn't been seen anywhere except my state, and therefore wasn't included in the cocktail.

Hah! I told you that wishing illness on yourself isn't good!

hopefully you'll still have it for the 13th. ;)

Hope you feel better. I'm hoping I don't get the flu. *knocks on wood*
Make sure you get to the dr if you need to. *hugs*
