    Who all has been sick since Christmas?

    Ugh, holy crap. Two colds and three stomach flus have stomped through our house since the Saturday before Christmas. Anyone else been miserable since the holidays?

    I felt crappy last weekend, but it never quite got to full blown sick.

    Runny nose the past couple days but I think it's just due to the changing moisture in the air with the melting snow

    My fiance has been sick a couple times and somehow I haven't gotten it. Woke up w/ a bit of a sore throat a few mornings, but that's nothing.

    My mom had Influenza A over Christmas, then decided to pass it on to me. Luckily, she still had some Tamiflu left over and some other stuff, so it was just a really bad cold.

    Does Tamiflu work pretty well? Is it over-the-counter, or by prescription? I remember reading that a lot of places had run out.

    I was sick on Christmas, just a bad head cold that lingered for awhile.

    Fiance got the flu pretty bad right around New Years, which I luckily avoided (without the flu shot I should add). I had one of the worst sore throats I have ever had last week, which has subsided quite a bit, and of course I did pass that on to her.

    I think it works really well within 2 days of getting sick, but after that it is useless. Im pretty sure it is prescription. My mom had to go to the hospital before she could get it.

    Re: Who all has been sick since Christmas?

    I've barfed so many times over the last month that I seriously had to check for alternative reasons. Honestly, I'd rather have a 24-hour stomach bug than a horrible cold that lasts 10 days, though.

    Was sick all last week. Started with a sore/dry throat and led to a bad head cold that caused me not to get much sleep. It wasn't fun.
