We just moved into our new house and it's been days upon days of really crazy chaotic frenzy. It's taken its toll on me and I've come down with some sort of illness. I took today off in hopes that I would feel better, but unfortunately I feel even worse tonight than I did at the start of the day. Not sure about going into work tomorrow at this rate.

I just ordered some Chinese takeaway, some spicy chicken and hot soup will hopefully help.

My hubby is much sicker Not man-flu sicker, but legitimately very ill. I'm trying to take care of him the best I can but he's hard to take care of. Thankfully he was able to take the night off from work.

I think his is the result of cleaning our old flat which had a fair bit of dust/mould. Maybe mine too, who knows. Or maybe it's from the flu shot!?

When was the last time you were ill?

January. I was in the hospital for an asthma attack following an upper respiratory infection.

I hope you both recover soon. Being ill ill is awful.

Oh never get the flu shot. It's a sure fire way to get the flu

No, that's a myth!

I've had the flu three times, one of which was after getting the flu shot. I've also had the flu shot a couple of other times without getting the flu.

But because of the baby, I was urged very strongly to get it this year, as he can't get one and I can pass on immunity to him.

I think I had a weird virus in August and I was absolutely exhausted and felt terrible with NO other symptoms.

It was really odd and I had to call in to work one day, which broke my year and three month streak for not calling in sick (I don't do it very much because I don't get sick very often).

The shots are only against the most common strain, right? You can still catch a different strain, which is annoying, but I understand. Only time I've caught the flu was no shot. It sucks so hard.

I've had the flu once in my adult life, and I slept for 2 days straight and had the craziest fever dreams.

I woke up really achy and sore today, kinda tripped me up. I haven't woke up sore in a long time. I haven't even had a cold for a very long while. Jan 2016 to march 2016 I was very sick.

The flu shots are made from killed virus (unless you get the nasal mist, which afaik they shouldn't recommend to a pregnant person). You can't get the flu from the shot, but cpayne is right that it's only to protect against what they think will be the most common strain(s). So you could still get a different flu.

The last time I was REALLY sick was two years ago August. I've had little things here and there, but that was a double ear infection that honestly knocked me on my ass worse than anything I've had in probably five years. Plus the antibiotics for it made me super sick to my stomach.

The last time before this that I was really ill was on the ship when I had a bad case of bronchitis. Ended up off work for 4 days and had to go to the medical centre several times a day for a treatment on the nebulizer.

I thought that calling in today would let me get better before I got any worse, but it doesn't seem to have worked and that's really annoying.

A few weeks ago I had a fever. And then after that it was an itchy throat and a a runny nose

I had a head cold bad enough to take a day off park maybe 3 years ago. I hate being sick. I don't have time for that kind of nonsense. My wife has had a horrible cold/flu thing for the last several days and I'm really hoping it doesn't glom on to me.

Haven't beem sick in a while, knock on wood.
But often when I leave work after a few days in the germy doctors office/sleep study lab, I feel run down for a day or so. I speculate that my immune system is fighting the bugs I picked up at work and defeating them.

I'm sick now hopefully it'll be gone by the time I fly to NY....

I used to have strep throat once a month for all of 7th and 8th grade. Started with a really bad case of it I got on our first day of Space Camp. Missed all of Space Camp because of it. And then without fail, on a monthly basis I'd be in the doctors with strep. I'm convinced that the antibiotics never actually treated it, because nothing else makes sense.

Anyway, this feels an awful lot like strep and that makes me sad.

Bumping because I'm still sick and I want to complain about it. Now it's out of my throat and all up in my head/nose.

Ready for this to be done.

I made some delicious french toast with blueberry sauce this morning. Now i'm not sure what to do about dinner but feeling inspired by skyfish's post.

Today's been moderately busy. I unpacked a couple of boxes and did some handwashing of laundry. We bought a washing machine and paid for installation but then they couldn't install because the builders had not cut a hole in the cabinetry for the hoses to go through. So we got them to cut the hole and tried to install it ourselves, but it seems like the hoses aren't long enough to reach to the plumbing. And our laundry situation is beyond out of control. My MIL offered to do a couple of loads for us tomorrow. I was excited to use the washing line for the first time though!

At least now I'll have underwear, which is pretty important to me.

Good deal.

Sometimes I'll hand wash a few items of my clothing, but handwashed underwear doesn't seem quite hygienic. Bras ok. Underpants...ehhhh.

I'm sorry you're feeling sh*tty, Spooner. Blech.

Haven't been sick since a year ago August - got norovirus. Husband got it first on the last morning of our cruise, so I had to haul 100lbs of suitcases all over the damn place, then we missed our connection back to the airport. Took another 2 days before I got hit with it and I barfed every-damn-where.

Weirdly in two years of working on a cruise ship I never got norovirus. We kept a pretry clean ship but still had a couple of outbreaks.

And yeah, not really ideal with hand washing of underwear but better than none!

I had my flu vaccine today. It's the first time since being pregnant 6 years ago that I've been offered it.

Not sure if my change in medication puts me in a catagory that is now eligible got it, I got it done anyway.

I'm too busy with work so I best not get sick now haha.
