Had it, got over it.
Dont know about everywhere else, but here in Australia theyve basically given up on it it seems. Unless youre in a risk group (young, old,
pre-existing condition) they dont even test you for it initially.
I had what I assumed to be a normal flu, but ended up having to go to a doctor a 2nd time because it was kicking my arse so hard. Of course, by the
time I got the results back, Id already had a week off work anyway, and was comming out the other side. If I was going to pass it on to anyone, I
would have done it already.
To whoever asked about symptoms...For me, it was the usual stuff, except where as I might normally get 2 or 3 of the bagload of flu symptoms, this
time I got them all. Cough, sneeze, headache, fever, chills, no apetite, and when i did eat it came straight back out through one end or the other,
zero energy, aches everywhere, dizzyness/lighthead...
Besides it taking an extra few days to get over, and generally being more full on than any other flu ive ever had, I never once felt like I had
anything more than a really bad flu.
And no, there was no attempt to load me up on random drugs or anything. Like I said, its like weve given up trying to contain it, are accepting the
fact its going around, and unless there are complications, are treating it like any other flu.
Of course, thats just my story, YMMV.
