    Right now I'm stuck at home being miserable 'cause I have a fever and I'm congested as hell. This really sucks 'cause if I don't work I don't get paid (and I haven't been sick since April of last year). *sigh*. Time to go make some warm vegetable soup. [​IMG]

    I was sick from Dec. 20th, had to drive home on Christmas day because the flu just kicked my butt, and then I finally got better as of last weekend (feeling totally normal).

    Yeah, being sick is crummy. And I was on my vacation for most of my sickness. Grr...

    Ron, are you sure you don't have a bacterial sinus infection? They can last that long if untreated, while colds usually last only a few days. If your "discharge" is bright yellow and looks like it might be radioactive, then get yourself to a doctor. If it is a sinus infection, then he should get you feeling much better in just a couple of days.

    Brian is right.

    A sinus infection will last a long time and will usually only clear up with a 10-14 day course of antibiotics.

    Then I'd offically say I have a sinus infection. Damn! It is slowly getting better, but if not gone by next week, I'll hit the doc.

    Get well soon everyone. I've also been sick this past week. Hopefully just a cold. Can't wait to get some rest this weekend.

    flu shots are usually worth the bother of getting. The flu will put you down for 1-2 weeks but if you get the shot you'll either not get it or have a much shorter duration if the virus is similar to the ones you recieved via the shot.
