alright, this is really starting to get on my nerves. this is the 3rd time I've been sick with the flu in the last 4 weeks. I'm so tired of it! My GI doesn't seem to care. I know this is related to my Imuran. My white blood count dropped to a 3.3, then 2.9, up to 3.5 (stopped taking it for a week) dr put me back on it and I haven't received results from yesterdays test yet (called to get them but since the drs aren't in the office on fridays they can't give them to me, grr!)

I'm sick of this, my job is suffering, my life is suffering, i don't want to have the flu every week for the rest of my life! Sorry, just had to vent

guess I should also add that it's not CD causing me grief. I've got the aches, fever, cough, and ever annoying runny/stuffy nose.

I went off Imuran cause it crashed my immune system after I accidently double dosed...
It was a blessing cause I ended up preggers like 8 months after I stopped it but.... I do think that is can def take a tole on your bodies ability to fight off bugs.
Good luck to you. Hope you pull thru ok.

Hope you feel better soon! The flu absolutely stinks.

Have you been tested for swine flu to make sure it's not that? Also, have you cleaned your house after getting better? Maybe you're picking it up because germs are in your house?...just a thought.

Sending get well thoughts your way!
