Last year I got the flu and it wound up turning into pneumonia.. it stuck with me for months and I swear the flare that I've been in lately all started back then. I never really got 100% better. I had some good days here and there but overall not the greatest. Sorry to sound like a bummer right now, I'm usually pretty positive. But that was the sickest I have been since my last bout of Lyme Disease back in 1999 and it zapped me for what's feels like forever.
One thing I DID do this year.. was get a flu shot. I don't ever want to go through that again!!
I sure hope you feel better soon. Having the Flu and Fibro is just plain awful. Take good care of yourself and GET WELL!!!!

P.S............ I went back to work WAY too early after the pneumonia thing, the doc. told me to take atleast a week off.. I went back after 2 1/2 days, because they "needed me", 7 months later I had to leave my job because of my health. So, PLEASE, take care of yourself!!!
(Duh... fibro fog, I meant to mention that in my earlier post)
I too have suffered from w/drawls and I SWEAR it feels like the flu! I'm so sorry to hear that you are having problems with your insurance. Insurance, to me, is a good thing on one hand because it can cut some of your health costs, but also it can be a pain because they make you jump thru hoops just to have it!!
Hope you are feeling good soon AND get your insurance trouble lined out!!
Donnaeil,I have never heard of the Salvation Army hrelping with the cost of meds. I didn't know they did stuff like that. I may have to look into that...
