Is this going around? Misery loves company.

Went to Florida to visit my folks over Christmas and the wife and I got this really nasty sinus/postnasal drip/ sore throat virus/head ache, hacking etc. etc. that we've had for a week! We can't shake it! Hell I didn't even get a lousy t-shirt while I was there! Can't even contemplate getting any work done as I'm so miserable.

Finally gonna see the doc today and just wondered if this wasn't going around. I did run into someone else that had something similar.

This is not the annual flu. In many ways I would rather have the flu! It's worse! Only almost funny thing is we sound like we're dong a mating call to each other but the call is not music it's coughing.

...oldest boy has had the whole Christmas break. No fever, no stomach problems just hacking a lot, a bad cold and sleeping quite a bit too. He has asthma and we've been watching it closely, but no wheezing yet. Nobody else has gotten it (yet)...

Drink 2 bottles of Nyquil (25% alcohol) and you won't care if you cough or hack or not.Works wonders.

I did have to drop the dog off at a kennel for the vacation as the condo the folks are in doesn't allow pets. Could have picked it up there!

Saw a St. Brenard puppy there when I pick up my dog. (Bed & Biscuit in Albion) Wasn't yours by any chance was it?

It's might be ...

that lovely airplane air you shared with all those other folks(assuming)you flew. An eye.ear and throat Doc i know says flying is one of the best places to pick up an infection or virus. He as several salesman/clients that come in frequently to get antibiotic's before flying. Do you remember when people were allowed to smoke on planes? He also stated that the airlines, in order to increase profits, have cut way back on cleaning the planes in between flights. Makes sense to me.

My pup went to the K9 academy here in Angola when we went to Detroit for Christmas. It broke my heart to leave her at the puppy prison. And now she's getting fixed(broken) and dew claws removed this week so she'll be away from me for two more days. I never knew a dog could be so special as she is to me. Chloe is her name and she truly is every bit the love intented through her name! Peace- Jeff F.

Post Election Selection Trauma - heard that's been going around left corners these days LOL !

I had the same thing

This response submitted by KB on 1/3/05 at 7:37 PM. ( )

(not pest syndrome), with one day fever, and the cough didn't go away for about 5 weeks. Speaking of doggies, our german shepherd has an interesting dance she does....when she hears the staple gun being used in the shop, she (being outside) races to a certain spot about 30 yards from the shop, and leaps around in circles barking and throwing dirt. She keeps in up for several minutes sometimes. And she hates the taxidermy shop. Some watchdog. Even after a year she is still as nervous as can be in here. But we wouldn't trade her.

That stuff is all over Florida where I live and it is hanging on to you for weeks, can't get rid of it. Probally something being dropped out of planes as a test by terrorist in training at our local flight schools.
