I don't know if that's what they call it in Houston, but here south of Houston, we call it "the crud". :lol:

It's a lot of coughing, some moderate congestion, maybe a little fever.  It's kinda like a mild "little brother" of the flu.
Well I've got it!  I ran fever for a couple of days and went to the doc yesterday.  Seems I've developed an allergy to cedar, which blows in from the north and west with the cold fronts.  So allergies plus the crud have lead to a sinus infection.  Yuck! :p

Y'all stay healthy out there! :D

Oh my, the crud is everywhere 8O The docs office I work in had been flooded with it only here it seems to be starting with a TERRIBLY sore throat. I've lost count of all the strep checks we've done!! So sorry to hear it's caught up with you, Rest, get TONS of fluids to thin the secretions, Tylenol or Motrin if you can for the aches and get well soon, the crud is NOT a fun way to start a New Year :(

Yep...I've got the crud right now. Actually, if any of you know Spongebob, my daughter say's I have the suds! I've had the cough and congestion for three weeks now, and now I've got the sore throat runny nose thing on top of that! Yep I sure feel like crud! :eh:

I can't believe it!! 8O  I'm sure it's a global virus! I had it just before Christmas and absoluely EVERYONE i've met has now had it!!  My family and friends in the UK have had it since last week. I don't know a single person who hasn't had "the crud" (must think to use that expression in the future :lol: ).
Yep, starts with a sore throat, then fever, blocked/runny nose and finally coughing. My husband also has the sinus infection. Unfortunately no loss of appetite so no luck there then :roll: and i was hoping to lose a couple of lbs :wink:

Yep, definitely a global pandemic!  My mum is smothered with it and I'm starting to come down with it too.  And my sister was only saying last night that she has never known so many people to be sick at the same time.  It'll be Lemsips and hot whiskeys for me for the next few days!

And Annette, I NEVER lose my appetite when I get sick - it's just not fair!  I'm getting married in May and could do with a nice bout of stomach flu or something right around now - take about a stone off, ha ha!
