well, the vaccines are usually only 80-90% effective, or you could have one of the other usual suspects, eg a metapneumovirus, or maybe RSV (respiratory syncitial virus). Good therapies include single malts and quality SA reds. Blends and cheap reds don't work, known fact. Oh, and drink lots of water and get some sleep.

Seemed to have been a lot of it around this year particularly in NSW and hard to shake off. Sleep and lots of water as said and I sometimes use olive leaf extract Vit C and citrus fruit. I don't know what hope you have if your wife works at a school or you have school age kids or use Public Transport. Also steamy shower and honk as much snot out as you can . Clean the shower afterwards with something powerful and change flannels . Nev

You probably don't have "the flu'... it is fairly rare.

Not the Flu, This time, but Oldmoneia ( pneumonia), ended with collapsed lung, and fluid there as well, And I didn't think it was that bad till the second xray result's came back.
The doc wanted to put me in hospital!. That's three year's about the same time thinking it's the flu,

Hot toddy. Splash of rum, brandy or scotch (your choice), teaspoon of brown sugar, mostly fill with boiling water and chuck in a squeeze of lemon and a lemon slice studded with cloves.

May not heal you but it tastes good, comforting, and will ease the misery a bit.

Also plenty of water and rest (if we're being sensible).

My wife's down for the fourth time with the dreaded lurgy.
Knocking her about this time & the Doc said if it worsens, go straight to hospital.
So the flue is getting very bad.
