7. Last March...
I considered myself not too sick to miss work... I couldn't afford to take ANY time off.
I had major congestion and a bad cough for about 6 weeks. Cough so hard I would gag and almost vomit.
Along with that, I felt very weak all the time.
No appetite... your basic walking pneumonia. I never was actually tested for swine flu... but three other people I
was around all had the same exact thing and all were tested and confirmed. I guess I was lucky and didn't get a full blown
flu, I really never got a fever... but it still lasted over 6 weeks to get back to normal.
