    It was horrible. I never want to get sick like that again. I have had this DD for about a year and a half and never got the flu until 2 months ago. My head and face felt so awful. I could not even watch TV. Just lay there and listen. I felt alot of anxiety was very dizzy, and could not even imagine walking outside. I could barely get up to eat my soup. This lasted for about 2 weeks and then another 2 weeks I was still very weak.

    My brother is just now recovering from West Nile Virus.
    He was VERY ill for weeks from it. Horrible stomach upset and awful headaches.
    It is really rampant in Colorado and South Dakota where I live. they are skeeter bombing the entire black hills area tomorrow evening, and there have been several deaths in this area from it. All elderly people but one.
    Not trying to scare anybody, just beware. I haven't taken the chance of getting bit, because if I go out in the evening I put on off, or wear long pants and shirts.
    As weak as I am, I don't know what a case of this would do to me.

    Oh yes, for some reason when fibro patients get sick, WE get real sick because of are immune systems are lower. I think I have found a little trick. It is a homeopathic drug Zicam liquid nasel gel. When I feel like I am even getting a hint of a cold I take the zicam and extra vitamin C.I work around the elderly so this makes it ten times worse for me. I believe it has helped. I get pheumonia every years I am keeping my fingers crossed that I dont this year!!! Stay healthy and wash your hands alot!!! AMY

    I have had bronchitis for a week and it has made me more fatigued and achey than it use to. Hard to believe! LOL

    Get lots of rest and hang it there. I think I am going to order the Zicam and see if helps next time I feel a cold coming on.

    Gentle hugs,

    Hi TobyJ------

    I am so sorry you are really ill. I've been so sick also----the lastest was pneumonia in the Hosp. I can give you some uplifting advice: "this too shall pass". Keep that in mind. I know it's extremely difficult and no one but "us" really understand much, but with time the illness will subside and you WILL make it through............
    I'll keep you in my prayers.
