The Flu is not to be futzed around with, particularly this year's. I got the Flu Vaccine every year for free as a nurse and when I retired I thought I probably no longer needed it so I passed on it. That year I got a case of the Flu so bad I wanted to die. I was sick for about 2 weeks. To make matters worse, my doctor gave me Codeine for my coughing and it apparently makes me crazy as a Shit-House Rat.  :idiot2:  Sometimes a Flu bug will hit you all at once with a high fever and body aches but be gone in a day or two. Other times it's less acute but causes a lot more respiratory problems-- thems the ones you got to watch out for. And the over-the-counter stuff will only help so much usually.

This is very tragic. :( RIP Jim and Angela. I greatly admired Jim's work, and he was an inspiration.

It's kind of silly to investigate whether or not a Clinton is lying. That's sort of like investigating why the sky is blue. Banzai_Cat
