Anyone ever been sick on Christmas?

It appears this year I will be sick on Christmas again . Two years ago I was nailed with a cold on my birthday then got it again for Christmas two months later. Woke up Sunday feeling like a truck hit me my muscles were killing me, I was nauseous, my head felt heavy and my throat was killing me. Then later that night I got a fever (that is gone now I believe thanks to some drugs). Ugh, I hate being sick my poor dog hasnt been out much yesterday or today. I hope im better by Saturday because I have 4 hours of driving to do . Still no cough yet or runny nose. No idea if this is a cold or flu im dealing with.

Body aches, fever....sounds like the flu. From what the hospital is telling me it is really bad this year. I was told that because I refused the flu shot. I'm sensitive to eggs, so don't do it, but because it's not a full blown allergy they laid into me pretty hard...

Anywho to get back to your original question. YES I have been sick on Christmas, but only once. It was horrible and I hope to never repeat that again. I didn't even get out of bed to open gifts. My kids still had a great time, I guess that is what mattered..lol

Hope you feel better soon. I feel like I have a bit of a scratchy throat and upset stomach today, I hope it doesn't get any worse and just passes. I haven't (nor intend to) had a flu shot...maybe I should've LOL Seems like a bad flu season...I'm in SW Ontario and they've been talking about it a lot on the news that it's hitting earlier in the season than usual this year. Try and get lots of rest and get feeling better, being sick sucks...especially on holidays/birthday. Your pooch is probably taking good care of you I hope

I've woken up Christmas morning to my period Thanks mother nature !

I don't think I've ever had any major illness on Christmas.

Over the weekend I felt pretty crappy, I'm hoping I can fight it off until after the 25th!

I don't get flu shots either, never have (I'm 60) DH had the shot once and was sick from it, never got it again. No one in our family had ever had the flu, DD works in a doctor's office, refuses the shot and has never had the flu.

Every year we are bombarded with the media telling us what a bad year it is/going to be for the flu. Remember the H1N1? I can honestly say I didn't know one person that actually had it.

I had H1N1! It was awful! I was asleep for like 3 days straight with a high fever but I survived without taking anything except some Gravol haha. It wasn't as bad as the media made it out to be.

I've never had a flu shot and never will.

Yes, I was sick for Christmas about 15 years ago. My parents had just moved 60 miles away, so I was in denial being sick, and my now husband and I took the trip to visit. I just wanted to sleep the whole time I was there, I tried to act excited for everybody, but it was terrible - see I still remember it like it was yesterday.

Sleep I believe is the best medicine, try to get it at the earlier symptoms. I find if I try fighting a sickness, it lasts longer. Hopefully you will be better by next week.

My mom used to make me get the flu shots every year because I'm supposedly immuno compromised due to my asthma. I would always get sick right after the shot, so as an adult - I don't get them.

I am actually fighting an infection right now. I've had it for about 10 days and it really whipped my butt. No fever (I rarely run one), but it started with a scratchy throat, and sinus pressure (no stuffy or running nose). Now we're up to nasty mucus, extensive coughing, no voice and puking up most meals (because I'm coughing so hard).

I'm hoping i'll be all better by Christmas.
