I got it as a double-whammy:
First, the stomach flu early on New Year's Eve morning (which exited any way it could...ahem), followed by a head-throat-fever version soon after. The only positive has been losing about 7 lbs in 3 days. Now on day 4 and the stomach is about 90% better, the throat at about 70%, and the headache and fever are gone. Baby steps... I did get to enjoy the holidays all the way up to Dec 30th though, so it wasn't a complete loss.
The CDC knows it's bad this year too:
Anybody else afflicted with this deadly ailment?
