Anyone Have Swine Flu?

Anyone have it yet or any experiences with it, My doctor says I do, it sucks huuggee, but definitely not as bad as it is broadcasted.

I got it about 4 weeks ago. Then, once I thought I felt better, I started playing football again, but unfortunately, this caused to resurface and hit me harder than before. However, I do agree that it isn’t as bad as it was broadcasted. My biggest problem was the huge fatigue that hit me.

Swine flu doesn’t get me, I get Swine Flue.

yeah man i feel that, i’ve been forcing myself to eat for energy. i just hope i can play this weekend.

I think I have some sort of flu right now. Hit me last night and its worse today. All my joints hurt, fever and I don’t feel like moving.

My niece and several friends have had it. I think I might have - a shitty cold that lasted for a month, but certainly wasn’t as bad as a typical flu.

I was actually just thinking about how I had the exact same thing last year…and hey! wait! it’s the normal flu.

I have no idea if I had it or not; bad headache for a day and chills, and lots of crap in my throat and fatigue for a week, but no fever. I still did everything like normal except for the first day.

I had it end of August beginning of Sept, hit my campus then.

Soreness in joints, high fever, fatigue and generaly felt shitty, but not that bad.

Bout a week to feel normal again, strength and endurance in the gym suffered for about another week after that.

My little man had it.

He was out for about 4 days.

It was hella better than the regular flu. That shit kicked his ass. Swine was a piece of cake for him.

Chuck, is that you?

I had it, and didn’t know it for a few days. I just knew I was kinda sick. I took my temperature with a thermometer that just happened to be low, and so I didn’t even think I was that bad. So I played in our game Friday night, lifted Saturday, and went to school and practice Monday before hearing about a kid that had the swine flu. The symptoms they warned us to look for were ones I had so I went to the doctor. He told me I had swine flu, and I laughed. Seriously.

Taking a week or two off might be the best thing you ever do for yourself during this illness. It kills your energy and doesn’t go away if you work your body too hard. I have already had to miss two games and might miss a third.

I can neither confirm or deny that accusation.

I love how people get a common cold and it miraculously turns into the swine flu. They could have the regular flu but to spice things up a bit, its the swine flu. Swine flu this swine flu that, who gives a goddamn fuck. Anyone who is bitching about the swine flu needs a tube of vagisil.

haha thats something along the lines of what my dad said, pretty funny.

I love how hyped up it is/was. they were saying like 1/3 of the world was gonna die and shit…

the dr said that i had it and it hit me for about 2 weeks to me it was just like the normal flu. i feel like anyone who goes to a dr with the flu the doc will just say its the swine flu which pisses me off. some girl in my area recently did die from it so i do believe that it can be fatal but so can the regular flu. to me its all the same.
