I know we have a few threads that discuss the Flu but this is a yearly thing and some years are worse than others. Here is a refresher on flu vs. cold: Body aches is the one that is the most telling if you have the flu. There is so much information and disinformation that one doesn't know what to believe. I have read that this year, 7 out of 10 who received the flu shot are getting the flu. I also read a teaspoon of honey a day will keep you healthy. Hard to sort out the hype and the disinformation. Carry Lysol, bleach wipes and a mask. Avoid drug stores, medical offices. These are all things I do during the flu season. What to do when you have the flu? I always focus first on fluids and staying hydrated.
