    Oh I feel your pain! I've been struggling just to keep food in my stomach and I've lost my appetite completely. Gotta force myself to eat and drink. Even though it's tough, take the time to recover completely. You don't want this flu to linger. Hope you feel better soon!!!!

    Stress can really wreck havoc on your immune system. I think you still have a month left to study so yeah, a 30 is not out of the picture! :luck:

    Look at it this way -- it's good practice for your future career. When you get to the wards, you will get exposed to every cold under the sun (particularly in pediatrics and ED rotations), yet not even be "allowed" to be sick. I know folks who go through a drug stores worth of meds and antibiotics some months. Also, at least you won't be as likely to get this same cold/flu again thanks to acquired immunity; It's much better to have the bad ones now than in med school/residency. :idea:
