If you think its the flu, get to the doctor for some of that stuff that they can give you to shorten the flu.
Echinacea with Golden Seal - take 2, 3 times a day for 3 days.
Drink LOTS of water, i mean lots...There's alot to be said for flushing the little virus bastards out of the body. Also OJ for the Vitamin C.
Play hooky from work and rest, take naps, and just let your body fight.
Never under estimate the power of Chicken Noodle Soup and Hottie Totties...
Also...I wish I was hashing with you!!
