    Got the flu

    This is not helping with pain but I did get my shot a few months ago and I'm hoping that'll mean this will be a mild one. Two years ago I was crying in pain, my girlfriend stroking my forehead. So far it sucks but it is not awful. I'll take less than awful any day! Only thing is I wish I wasn't out of oral Flexeril. I haven't needed it for years but it is the only drug that gave me a high I enjoyed. I'd be flyin' tonight. :-)

    If you are within 48 hours of getting symptoms, contact your doctor for an Rx for Tamiflu.

    All the best,

    GJ, do you know if Valacyclovir HCL-1 will work also. I got a script for it a while back I never used because I thought I had herpes but did not, I know it's a anti viral med also. If it does help I'll take some of it when/if I get the flu. I'm very nervous about getting it because I work with College students in a teaching position.

    Thanks for the advice, I think I'm going to tough this out. It's not as bad as the one I got two years ago. I'm thinking/hoping it will pass quickly. Lousy night but who knows, I may start feeling better soon. Oh what a headache I have.
