    I got nothing! *knocksonwood*

    I am thinking my regular daily shots of raw apple cider vinegar helped :mrgreen: That shit seems to work wonders!

    I hope everybody gets better soon!

    I'm doing good so far...but after standing in multiple lines outside in the cold in Seattle and seeing a lot of sneezing and coughing people on the plane home yesterday....I feel it's only a matter of time.

  • Luckily, I was sick for 2 weeks BEFORE my Portland show. I was all better for the show and since. I got lucky.
    Is it so wrong to think that love can keep us safe?

    2 of us got it. Waiting in the ticket drop line didn't help. This is my 2nd day holed up in a motel in North Bend recovering.

    So it WAS you! :nono: :evil:

    kidding! :lol:

    I was pounding 2 packets of Emergen-C twice a day every day since Portland, it finally took me down in Vancouver, and I was in a haze since then. I feel so bad I missed out on so many things I wanted to do with friends that came out to visit.

    Still amazed by the number of colors that my lungs and nose can produce...:sick:

  • Got two hours of sleep after the Seattle show and before I had to head to the airport.
    Spent last night with a 102 fever and out of work today.

    I got sick within 24 hours of the Seattle show. Hard to believe that the body can produce such copious amounts of mucus every 30 seconds...

    On the brink but thinking I might be able to pull through (fingers crossed). Waiting in the GA line in Portland, Spokane and Seattle (ESPECIALLY SEATTLE) certainly did not help, but I also resisted from sharing wine unless I had the first sip. Learned from Europe last year when everyone pretty much caught whatever Ed caught from kissing the Swedish boy :mrgreen:

    :lol: Oh yeah! But this would be my remedy if shit hits the fan 8-) Also, what helps is a hot drink made of lemon juice, honey, a little water and sliced ginger.

    I got the flu after Spokane and barely recovered in time for Seattle.
    NERDS!
  • there's nothing new about this phenomena, it's call tourcough.

    the biggest outbreak of this ever began when they played a show on 10/8/00 in East Troy, WI. It was cold.

    everybody that was 'on tour' and went to that show got sick that show, including myself. my sickness didn't subside to weeks after the final seattle shows in 2000. i wasn't deterred though, sick or not, i did that whole north american tour and being sick was just one hurdle to overcome.

    i have a bit of a sniffle now that i started in LA and worsened camping out for GA in seattle. in this case also, it was worth it.

    The buddy i took to Vancouver has been barfing since. I've had no i'll effects.

    I'm still under the influence of pounds of DayQuil and nightquil, also i'm mute and my eyes are swollen :cry:

  • Pumped the Nyquil and vitamin C first sign of the cough and pretty much cut off the partying in Seattle. It worked but certainly made Seattle less fun and turned me into the 'buzzkill'.
    First Show: Chicago 1998
    Last Show: Seattle 2013
    Next Shows: Vienna 2014, Oslo 2014
  • It sounds like a relatively mild epidemic compared to 2009 when everyone who went to the Spectrum shows got H1N1. :shock:

    I was worried about getting sick in October; we drove home after all three shows, and I admit I'm a little old to be getting home at 3:00a.m. without suffering any ill effects. After the H1N1 beating the whole family took in 2009, I was thrilled to stay healthy despite the road trips, late nights and poor diet.

    I hope you all recover quickly. Emergen-C for everyone!

    Been blowing my nose for a few days now.

    Was sick after Philly and Hartford so this time I don't feel sick just all stuffed up.

    Still totally worth the trips!
