Link This year is said to be a very bad flu season in the U.S., with many reported deaths. Three of my relatives whom I live with have all gotten sick within the past week. Another sister of mine and her family also got very sick. I got some kind of bug on Friday, the 18th, that started with severe coughing, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue. I had fever and chills that evening and have been taking cough syrup and other medicine ever since. I don't know if this is the flu, but I surely feel miserable. I got a flu shot back in December. Anyone else got sick this year? Has anyone been impacted in any way? What say you?
