So, as luck would have it, I ended up getting the 24-hour flu on Christmas night! It was horrible! The worst part was, there was nothing any doctor could do.
The only thing I could do was wait, drink gatorade, and eat Pepto like it was candy.
Now I'm back to work and feeling as normal as ever....you may feel like you're dying at the time, but just give it time and it will go away.
The doctor said that this is something that is going around and there is nothing you can do to prevent it, so if you get it, don't panic, just give it time.
