What does this have to do with Winter Dysentery in cattle or cows getting the flu?

Wearing gloves? phhh bunch of wimps, I lick grocery cart handles to clean before using.

Last week it was reported that KS was the worst state. Schools are even closing. I didn't get the shot but don't get to town more than once or twice a week although the CDC says we still haven't hit peak season & recommends it. May want to reconsider.

Yes, but you are known as somewhat of a gambler............

I have heard this too! Everyone in my family and where I work has had it. Some get it worse that others. I do not usually get sick, but spent 4 days in bed, unable to even stand up, because of it. I had to take various meds to combat it and the symptoms for over 3 weeks. My husband just felt a bit under the weather for about 2 days. My 4 year old daughter has been battling it on and off for a month now. Just gets tired and throws a fever for no reason. This is a kid who, otherwise, has not yet been ill a day in her short life. I can tell you I monitor her health like a hawk these days....


It has been the flu from he77. Husband and I have been through it, and still dealing with lingering affects. Many days in bed with it, very painful. Its awful! One of the worst flu's I've ever had.

Missed seeing Workinonit at the Va Farm show @ Expo in Fishersville Va and I was glad that she was feeling too ill to come as I sure didn't/don't want it. Sorry that she was sick, and her husband too. I have heard horror stories about how bad everyone has felt from it. I do not want or need it and have had a couple of farms cancel because the help has been sick and such. I tell everyone when I call to schedule, if you are sick I am not coming because I don't need it.
I do not take the flu shots either, and they say this years shots are less than 10% effective against it, and that many have come down with flu like symptoms since getting the shot. No thanks. I do take extra Vit C and Echinacea and Golden seal and vit E. Should take zinc but it turns my stomach..... All are for the immune system.

Well, I always suspected as much. :banana:

Miss/er/ri also sounds like an awful state in which to live a life. :)

Too late for me. Been down & out for about 12 days now. Up & doing chores now, but was terrible. Then, I gave it to Phil. He didn't get as bad, but with both of us having a fever made it tough to get outside - we are calving - and it is winter, soooo, must feed everything. Can't the program "STOP" while I'm sick?????
