anyone had this pig !! of a flu? i have it and combined with back ache its horrible .i have just finished off my
tamiflu and i have just started some augmentin antibiotics.
i have not had real flu for years but trust me swine flu is real and its as bad as they say


  • My family had it back in early September. We were not given Tamiflu. My husband was very ill (he's a diabetic)- he ended up with pneumonia. He was sick for a full 2 weeks (laid up in bed). I was sick for 10 days and my daughter was sick for 10 days. The women didn't find the need to be in bed the whole time, but we did rest a lot. Aches, head aches, back aches, coughing, etc. I think we went through like 4 box's of tissue.

    Feel better,

  • Hey Tony,
    I've been thinking about you a lot lately and wondering how you are doing. I'm so sorry to hear that you got the swine flu. As if you needed anything else to go wrong for you.

    Any word on your MRI?

    My kids both had the stomach bug this week.

    I haven't seen you on facebook. I hope you Get well soon and we can catch up when you are doing better.

    You're in my thoughts and prayers,
    Your spiney friend,
