    I hate feeling ill. Fucking flu can fuck off. I can deal with the aching, i can deal with feeling dizzy, i can deal with almost any aspect of it due to the fact that ive got Hep C and feeling like shit is a regular occurance but the one thing i cant stand is the pain in my neck and at the back of my throat.

    My neck feels like its being squeezed out of existance every time i move my head and my throat is the worst, it feels like ive swallowed 150 grade rough aluminium oxide sandpaper.

    There is an analgesic throat spray here in the States called Chloraseptic. It comes in generic pharmacy brand versions too. It does a terrific job of numbing a sore throat- especially when you can't stop aggravating the pain with coughing.

    There are three general rules of thumb to follow when you have a cold or the flu in order to shorten it's duration. Drink extra fluids, avoid sugars (it is immunosuppressive) and eat extra protein. The protein increases your body's production of T-killer immune cells that fight your infection.

    Good luck!!!

    I have the tailend of a flu also <3 fuck, I empathize
    I think I've probably overdosed on advil because the aching and the chills are unbearable

    I think I've killed a forest of tissue-trees lol
    and eaten 10x my weight in throat/cough drops

    you'll make it! next year I'm getting the flu shot xP
