            Take care, RD. So far, I've been lucky. Age makes me low risk for H1N1, and I've had my seasonal flu shot.

                And by fluids, they mean water. There simply is no fluid better for you than water, especially when you're sick. Drink lots of it. It helps bring your fever down. Having an excess of water when your sick allows your body to quickly flush toxins from your system as well. It thins your blood a little bit by lowering the cell to fluid ratio which means your immune system cells can get around your body faster and easier.

                And yeah, lots of rest. Take it real easy. Especially with the cough.

                My wife caught the flu 2 weeks ago and she the flu itself is over, but the cough remains and it doesn't take much to set her coughing. So breath slowly and shallowly if you can until you beat it. Flu sucks. It's nasty. I know you probably don't feel to much like eating either, but be sure you get good nutritional food so that your body has the energy it needs to fight off the flu as well.

                Hope you feel better soon.

                Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                        I 2nd this about the cough. I had H1N1 in early Sept and the cough lingered until the end of October. I had about two cough free nights and then BAM!! I caught another bug complete with cough and sinus congestion! At first, it was tight like asthma and then (with the help of a cough pill from Costco - similar to mucinex), it loosened and is now almost gone. I feel your pain and I mean that literally. I coughed so violently with H1N1 that I swore I'd broken a rib or two.

                        Get lots of rest (I missed 2 weeks of work) and then rest some more on the weekends. I hope you feel better!

                          My household has been very fortunate so far this year. Seems like everyone I know has been sick over and over.

                          It sounds like a terrible time, hope everyone feels better soon.

                            Sorry to hear ya sick rex, especially right before Thanksgiving. Besides all the great advice already given here the only recommendation I can give is indulge in some good comfort food after the first few days.

                            I really like IN n' Out, so a day or two after I first get hit with the flu, i'll enjoy a burger from there. Don't go overboard and take it easy and only indulge if you feel you can hold down your choice food.

                            Plenty of fluids, plenty of rest. Catch up on some TV or DVD's and if it gets worse go see your doctor!

                            Feel Better soon Rex!

                                      I can't remember the last time I had the flu. It's probably been at least 10 years. I hardly ever get sick. I can kiss my BF when he has a raging cold and not get his cooties. Go fig.
