I had a doctor friend who I don't use say this... If you have some thing else that weakens your ability to fight the flu get it... If your healthy and don't have any reason to... don't.

I took that as don't and have never got one. I'm not against doctors but I find the less I go to them the less sick I get.

My cure for most ailments in a good swig of Nyquil, sleep, and lots of water.

Just seems to me from all the people I know that get it are playing Russian roulette.

He// CB your body would outright reject influenza. :lol2:

But all joking aside, lost a good friend about 4 years ago. Came down with the flu. Decided to just lay it out at home...found him dead a few days later just laying in his bed. He was a strong middle age man too.


I might get it tomorrow.
I just don’t get sick like that never had any of the childhood diseases either.
I think I had every one....

Cure for the flu is two BC headache powders and a red bull. And get your azz to work. Works everytime. No way I'm laying out of work to be sick. If im not going to work I wanna feel good and enjoy it.

I've never said anything like that. :?:
I can handle a little flu though. :D

Come visit. I've had it for a week now but i'll be happy to give it to you because I've always been of the opinion the only way I can get rid of it is to give it to someone else. Works every time.
(you can thank me later, and yes, I had the flu shot)


That's just bad luck friend.
Just think how much better next years gotta be. :D

I've had the flu twice...it was horrible. Didn't eat for over a week, threw up anything I tried to eat, threw my back out both times coughing. I was pregnant one of those times, so when I could barely move husband took me to my doctor. He just said try to drink.....but the worst of it all was I lost no weight...no food for a week and I weighed the same......ugh
I do not get flu shots.. I don't get around large groups of people anymore so my exposure is limited...

I haven't been to a doctor for over 20 years. I did go to the minor ER for stitches, and I did have to get a root canal, but as far as going to one to 'make' sure i'm healthy I don't do it. No mammograms, no papsmears, not doing it. I can take care of myself. My MIL was a doctor junkie...went for any tiny thing. ANd like the women of her generation who had their uteruses yanked out and then put on massive doses of hormones to make them feel like women then end up with breast cancer.... Nope, not gonna walk on that path.. Not only did she get cancer, but also Hep C from some thing done while making sure going for checkups to keep you healthy.

I am finally able to take a 2 week trip to Hawaii and with my luck I would pick up the flu on the way down there. So I'm getting one just to be on the safe side.

flu shots are not a good idea for so many reasons I would bore you in the telling. Just build your immune system up with food grandma used to serve like farm eggs (high in sulfur which moves through your body killing viruses and bacteria) could include in that group anything high in sulfur like olive oil, guacamole, well water, raw milk, etc. All help raise vitamin d levels if you include zinc.

Ever since they put aborted baby tissue in vaccines there have been multiple problems. The doctor who helped develop the vaccine came forward as a whistle blower.

Interesting, a few years ago, we had Sirloin/MedicineWoman/NCLiz here vilifying sulfur in post after post as the curse and bane of mankind's existence and seed of satan and now we have you, their antithesis and evidently, the anointed Sulfur Pimp, declaring it analogous to the 2nd coming of Christ hizself.

Seems to me the flu shoot is just a money making scheme. Everyone is trying to sell you one so there must be some good money made by selling them.

It's easy $ too. Medicare and many/most health insurance plans push it and pay 100% of it. Cheaper for the plans to pay for one shot than to pay for Dr visits and medication for 2 weeks.
Of course, that is only an accurate assessment if you don't get the flu anyway..
