    And keep drinking warm liquids. If you get dehydrated, that would be the reason you would have to stay in the hospital. So if you don't want to be a patient in the hospital, drink those liquids! Try eating Jell-o or something like that if your throat is still scratchy.
    Viral Infection...she didn't say sinus. 1X Q 12 hrs pills a day "amantadine" for preventing or giving relief from an viral infection. Just can't handle up then like go back moimoi everytime. I missing out with my family get to gether at the Beach today! I can't go cause I don't want to catch this from me.

    Miulang and Serenity, Thanks so much! It's 3:41 pm. and made it through the worse times. I know I'm getting better when I could eat and it stayed down. I drank Orange Juice and lots of water! I want to visit my family at the beach but can't take the chance of falling to sleep on the wheel...so here I go back again to moimoi! Once again, Mahalo...Dea Internent Sistah's!

    Perspiring, thick mucus...and the pain when it's coming out...blood! Shit, anymore of the same, I may get admitted. I told the doc, I'll call her, either way. There goes my plans for tomorrow. My daughter couldn't take me, today is her first day to report to active duty at Hickim AFB. As for my neighbors? hahahahahahahah They're so afraid of me cause I run our building like the military. All yards and rubbish properly cleaned and stored.

    Eh Aunty:
    You must be coughing plenty, yeah? If cannot eat, at least drink LOTS of water and tea! You can go for quite a few days without food, but cannot do without liquids. If your electrolytes go out of whack, you could pass out or act even more crazy den usual.

    If gotta, can you take one taxi to go see da doctor? Or no moa people in da building with car who can take you? If you spitting up blood, that's getting serious. You daughter no can take you to see da doctor?

    I'm SICK, SICK , SICK! Can't eat, can't do nothing. Tonight my family will be taking our kid brother and family to an Elegant Restaurant. The total stems from 30 - 40 family members only from the island of Oahu. Then tomorrow, it's POT LOCK! I can't go due to being sick. About an hour ago, I spit up blood and called my Doc's office. No appointments till 3:30 pm. I told the phone operator that I couldn't drive cause I felt dizzy. Much more being it's Peak Hours for Traffic.

    I don't know what I post cause I go in and out of sleeping. Everything I eat, goes out! Oh, well, I ventilated!

    Just curious.

    Hui Serenity:
    It sounds like you might be lactose intolerant. One way you can test that is to stay away from eating any dairy products for a few days. If your problem with phlegm goes away, then unfortunately it means you have a lactose intolerance problem (usually the only people who don't have the lactose intolerance gene are the white Northern Europeans; the majority of Asians and African Americans have some degree of lactose intolerance).

    There are enzymes that you can take to lessen the impact of eating dairy products, or you can switch over to drinking soy milk and eating products made with soy.

    You can also go to a naturopathic doctor who can prescribe all kinds of natural enzymes to try to get desensitized.

    Eh Aunty Lynn:
    You still get one fever after 3 days? If your head feels like it's splitting after all this time, it sounds like you have a sinus infection. You better go talk to the people at Kaiser again. You might need antibiotics.

    Just because you got the flu shot doesn't mean you can't come down with the flu; it just means the symptoms you have are more likely not to be as severe. It could also be that what you have is not something that the current flu vaccine is supposed to make you immune from.

    You can get over-the counter medications that might make your life a little easier: there's a pill called Mucinex that breaks up all the phlegm in your chest and makes you cough it up (this will prevent pneumonia) and you can use Zicam on your stuffy nose. Drink lots of tea with honey and lemon. Take long, hot showers (will clear up your stuffy nose). Gargle with warm water into which you've put about 1 tablespoon Hawaiian salt (for scratchy throat).

    Have you had a pneumonia shot yet? That's even more important than that flu shot. People don't die from the flu; they die from complications like pneumonia.

    Re: Stopping the cold flu

    Speaking of flu & colds....

    I am not sure what is the normal dosage of vitamins
    for each individual(s)....

    & I am not sure if the weight & age has any factors in it, also,
    but I weight between 125 to 130 lbs. & I take
    Vitamin E @400 I.U. ,Centrum (A to Zinc with lycopene), &
    Vitamin C with echinacea (gummy kine made for kids & adults, I think).

    So far....

    That have helped me alot to preventng from getting any flu and/or cold(s).

    All I have to do now is figured out a way from getting phlegm
    each time I have any food substance that have dairy.

    Sheesh!.
    I sure hate it all the time when I have to constantly be

    Psychology is paying off because I just keep on telling myself not to get sick,

    To the cynics, it's brainwashing.
    But i see it as positive brainwashing at the very least.
    and it works.
    But you shouldn't take that slow approach.
    ...what you are using are two strong negative words:
    not.
    sick.
    and the subconcious picks up on these.
    Rather, Come from the end positive result:
    I am feeling great. i am clean and clear..
    i am healthy. I am filled with energy and vitality.
    ...etc.

    and use your imagination:
    see yourself as the above images.
    imagine your body and soul pulsating with white light.
    Corny I know, but it doesn't cost anything to try it.
    Remember:
    It takes more energy to be negative than positive...



    and of course, for hundreds of years, the wise are familiar with the concept; clean blood, healthy body.
    Get rid of cold and flu by the natural anti-biotic (anti-biosis = against life)
    garlic
    and also cayenne. african prefereably.
    put in double ot capsules and wash down with tons of water.
    two or three caps a day

    Adri, the cold and the flu are very very different things. Colds are annoying. Flu can kill you. They're both viruses, so antibiotics are no help. Tylenol will just keep your fever down (if it's the flu) but won't make it go away. Get rest and fluids. That's about all you can do, until the new experimental antivirals come into wide use.
    I've got the flu...two days now. All I've been doing is taking med's and Tylenol to bring down the fever. I couldn't drive or find someone to take me to Kaiser...I just love the phone appointments. I described what's going on with my body,...and Doc says it's the flu! She wanted me to come in for a better in depth evaluation. However, I can't even stand up for a long period!

    My kid brother is still here with his family. I caught the flu from his son. I'm not angry at the kid. What I'm pissed off is that I took the Flu Shot and I still got it bad! My head is starting to spin...talk story laters!
