I have the flu now. Symptoms started yesterday. So far it's not terrible. I have a low fever and runny nose/sneezing. No other symptoms. Thankfully I'm not throwing up. DD had it last week so I knew I was probably going to get it. I am little worried too but trying NOT to freak out because at this point there is little I can do but just take good care of myself. Rest, drink plenty of water, and I'm trying some natural remedies too, like honey and cinnamon in hot water, lemon in my water, peppermint and chamomile teas, and lukewarm baths to keep the fever down. I will probably take Tylenol too if my fever gets higher than 100.
I didn't get the flu shot and I wish people would stop judging others for their choices. I believe in taking the natural route whenever possible, and while I support getting required vaccines, I am just not a big supporter of the flu vaccine. That being said, I will get one and have DD get one next year because we will have a newborn at home and I know the flu in infants can be very dangerous.
