^ I had something exactly like that last week for about 7-8 days, missed three days of classes cause of it and i felt like it was the worst sickness i've ever had. it was the worst timing too cause it was midterms and midterm paper time and i did jack shit for an entire week cause i couldnt concentrate or move grr.
I had all of your symptoms too, just add in a vomiting and nausea almost like everytime after i eat i felt nauseaus and threw up three times altogether. Saw the doctor and he said it was just a really bad flu

so thankful its gone now though

I pay fucking $40 a year for mandatory immuniziations and they havent notified us to go in and take them yet
I thought health care workers are getting them next week (second in priority after the pregant and the elderly?

Why are they giving it to the bums first??

If you have flu symptoms please stay at home! no one likes you spewing germs at work/classes/buses.

yes but if the hobo get sick they will be sure to spread their germ ALL around the area and all over the money/coins. Worst case scenerio die and rot in the streets for a few hr before being clean up.

i'm non-medical staff, ie. i don't come into direct contact with patients, hence their reason for me getting bumped to the bottom on the list. however i do have to deal with other staffers who are front-line workers on a daily basis so...

the reason why i was allowed and was told to get my shots is because i have a chronic illness.

yikes 6-8 months... by that time the flu season will be over or you've already got the virus

i got my shots at work last friday. it's mandatory because i work in healthcare and i've been trying since it was made available for the general staff last monday, but there was so much demand they kept closing the clinic before it was my turn in line

by friday evening i was feeling a bit hot... woke up saturday and my arms hurt, and then sunday i couldn't get out of bed at all. the advil they gave me took some edge off all the aching... and now i'm at work and i'm still sore

Swine influenza is an infection by any one of several types of swine influenza virus. Swine influenza virus is any strain of the influenza family of viruses that is endemic in pigs.The swine flu is a global outbreak of a new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1, a type of swine influenza, that was first detected in March and April 2009.Swine influenza virus is common throughout pig populations worldwide. Transmission of the virus from pigs to humans is not common and does not always lead to human influenza, often resulting only in the production of antibodies in the blood.
