Feeling Flu-ish.....
I woke up yesterday and my throat hurt. I woke up this morning and I coughed and coughed. I checked my temperature and it was 102! I'm feeling a little flu-ish here.....

Bummer. The flu has reached epidemic proportions according to the CDC. Drink lots of fluids. I hope it isn't the same strain I had and am still getting over, it's a rough one.

Hang in there, hope you feel better soon.

Unfortunately it does sound sound like what Mason and I (and millions of others) had. Try to get plenty of sleep because that does seem to help.

I heard there is another strain of flu that isn't part of the flu vaccine. You may have that as I heard you have high temp with it.

For sore throat this never fails to work for me. It is a very old, old remedy, probably nearly 100 years old. I have it in an old medical book I have. Drink it often. The taste is not bad sort of a sweet and sour thing.

8 oz mug hot water, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon vinegar. Mix well and drink. It will help keep you full of fluids and it really does help a sore throat. Whenever I or my husband get sore throats, I make up a 1/2 gallon pitcher of the stuff and just leave it in the fridge then heat it in a mug as I want it. Just remember to mix the pitcher up each time in case the honey settles.

Hope you get to feeling better real quick!
