Allergies or the Flu - Christmas Misery

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Professionals MN Broker #40288835

I am sneezing, coughing and congested.  So are other members of my family including those who came home from Florida with me. I feel fine but am tired (probably a lack of sleep).  They, however are just miserable and have additional symptoms that I thankfully am not sharing.  Fever, chills, thick mucus, aches and a total lack of motivation (so they say).  I think that my problems are due to allergies and they have a cold or the flu.  If you are wondering about your symptoms here is a great link to About.com that will give you some help in sorting things out.  Of course, a visit to the doctor may be in order for some and do not let the Internet be a substitute for good health care!

At my house, these young and healthy individuals should bounce back quickly but since Mom (that would be me) is taking care of them and they are on vacation this could take a while.

Great photo! It's like they say, a picture's worth a thousand words!

When I was first coming down with the flu I too was online and found About.com to be very helpful.

How can you have a listing for $175 for a 3/1, when a 1/1 is $580. Is that a typo?

Kathleen, sadly we discovered a year or so ago that it's the Christmas tree we're all allegeric.  I'm still not willing to give up the tradition of getting a real tree so we all suffer through for a couple of weeks.

I have been real lucky to have just had one night of flu symptoms and a short bout with a head cold.  I will have to check out the link.

Vicki - that is a great photo isn't it.  I am a bit confused about your question - could you clarify?

Craig - allergic to your tree? that is tragic!  That can't be my problem unless I am allergic to plastic - all my real trees are still in the yard growing!

I woke up all stuffed up this morning thinking I forgot my allergy meds from having a little too much to drinky winky last night.  Going through the day now I am realizing it is a cold or some bug and I want to go back to bed, LOL!  Hope you are feeling better by now!
