I felt fine yesterday, and then BOOM, every bone in my body aches now. I took my temp and it is still normal, but, feel a little chilled. And, I got the flu shot! Can I say GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR? Ok, I just want some sympathy, so, bring it on!

    So sorry, Susie. Isn't it
    So sorry, Susie. Isn't it the pits when you think you have done everything to protect yourself, and come down with it anyway. Hope it is short lived, and you are feeling better soon. Sounds like it is time for a little pampering for someone. Hugs.

    Aw, I just got over it a couple weeks ago. It's the pits. Do you have a cough too? There is more then one going around so you could have gotten the other one. When we have the flu we eat jello, chicken soup, and grape juice. Hope you get well soon.

    No Marcia, no cough yet.
    No Marcia, no cough yet. Just feel achy and just crappy.

    Glad you got over it!

    VickiSam I know what you are
    VickiSam I know what you are saying. If my counts are up I'll get my 2nd round tomorrow, and then if it's a repeat, I'll be eating white bread and apple sauce for 4 days, and then chicken soup and crackers for another 4 or 5 days. I've been struggling with my weight for the last 12 years. I've lost 7 or 8 pounds since my 1st chemo. Since I have to go thru all this treatement I hope that I'll at least drop 30 pounds. It only seems fair that since my body has to go thru all this trauma, the least it can give me is the weight loss.

    You poor thing
    I hope you get to feeling better! I got the shot too, the regular flu shot, not the H1N1. But, I still feel ok. Hope it continues. HA!

    Do what everyone says, rest, drink fluids and eat whatever sounds good to you!

    :(
    I slept all day and now I am wide awake. :( I hate being sick like this. Besides being exhausted still from rads, now I have the flu on top of it. It just isn't fair!

    Sorry that you can't sleep
    Sorry that you can't sleep at night, but, if you are sleeping during the day Susie, it means that your body is trying to get over the flu. Do you have any sleeping pills or anything to take at night if you can't sleep? Rest is huge in getting over the flu. Hope you feel better today.

    Gentle hugs!

    Sleep
    I have sleeping pills and I did take one last night and slept great. Since I sleep so much in the day now with the flu, it is hard to sleep at night. So, if needed, I will just take them until I get over this stinkin flu. I am feeling somewhat better today!

    Glad you're feeling better
    And that you got some rest.

    Keep taking good care of yourself until you're fully recovered. Don't forget to get those liquids in!

    Take care,
