My head is throbbing and I have 2 kids who aren't listening to me and I'm so sick I'm gonna die. What am I going to do???? Nothing is helping!
The only thing you can do really is rest as much as possible. I had the most horrendous flu twice in december and was sick through out christmas and flat out miserable. I was feeling so bad I would cry at the drop of the hat and I had every symptom in the book. If you head is hurting that bad, I would see your doc to make sure you're not developing a sinus infection as those can be quite annoying I hear. Other than that just rest yourself up as much as you can and with in no time you'll be well. Get tons of sleep...thats what helped me.
