FLu + flu like symptons

Postby buxbunny » Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:58 pm

i have flu.

Its flu on top of flu like symptoms. Its like double negative so shouldnt they cancel each other out. imagine that getting better by getting worse.

I hate how some symptoms contradict each other it makes sound bit stupid when explaining.

hope you are all wrapped up bad weather not getting you too bad.
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

Hi Bux

I had that last week and yeah you would think that logically two negatives cancel each other out lol. But I find that whenever I get a "normal" illness like stomach bug/cold etc that my FM feels worse too.

The weather isn't helping at the mo either. Have lots of rest, stay wrapped up and drink plenty of fluids.

Hope you feel better soon.
