He was 21 and fit. He tried to push

Kyler Baughman seemed to be the face of fitness. The 21-year-old aspiring personal trainer filled his Facebook page with photos of himself riding motorbikes and lifting weights. He once posted an image of a kettlebell with a skeleton, reading: "CrossFit, hard to kill." So when he came down with the flu last month, his mother said, he possibly assumed he simply needed some rest. "I think he thought, ´I just got the flu; I´ll be all right,´ " his mother, Beverly Baughman, told NBC affiliate WPXI. But days after Christmas, Kyler Baughman was worse - coughing and running a fever, his family told the

I had influenza when I was 24, and thought it was going to kill me before the fever broke. It´s best to have your flu shot.

Headline is a lie, clickbait.
He went to the hospital and died of the flu.
200,000-500,000 die from the flu every year.
Many more in years with a major outbreak.

I read about the flu epidemic of 1918 that killed so many young men, especially soldiers at home, from the War, in the U.S. What was discovered that the virus itself was not that virulent, but it was able to trigger the antibodies to over-react and literally kill the victim. Youth was a factor. The more healthy and fit were most susceptible to the disease. Ironically, the so-called weak and elderly fared far better.

Influenza in general doesn’t kill people. It is the secondary bacterial infection and sepsis that kill people. If used early Tamiflu may help and antibiotics are lifesaving.

This is so sad, but a prime case of listening to your body and not thinking you are indestructible.

I had my worst cases of flu as a younger person. Turned out the worst topped the flu with a bacterial infection and possible food poisoning. I was within a hairsbreadth of being admitted to the hospital. My brother, a doctor, pumped me full of oral antibiotics and I got through.

As an athlete and personal trainer, he had a lot of bodily contact with gym surfaces (germ ridden) and people. He would find it hard to keep clean even if he were scrupulous about washing hands, taking care on touching surfaces, not touching his eyes and mouth, and using professional level bacterial wipes on surfaces.

If you continue to run a high fever, get to a doctor. Fast. FYI I react badly to all flu vaccines and haven´t had one for years--and this year´s doesn´t work against this year´s flu.

#2, There´s new research published by Kyle Harper in a new book, based upon descriptions in contemporary accounts, that something like the Spanish Flu may have been one of the plagues that brought down the Roman Empire -- the so called ´Plague of Cyprian´ starting AD 249. https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/11/solving-the-mystery-of-an-ancient-roman-plague/543528/

One of my uncles died of the Spanish flu onboard one of the last troop ships to head for France in WWI. (As it turned out, those troops were not needed. Irony.) One thing that contributed to the fatality rate was crowded conditions. This was certainly true on that troop ship.

My father was in South Carolina in an Army camp when he got that flu. He was in very bad condition. A nurse who was fond of him told him he’d never get well in that ward and moved his bed outdoors. Out of the crowded flu-ridden ward where he’d been getting worse. He improved. He got well. He lived to be 88.

The young man in the article did try to tough it out and get through the flu. He finally became so ill that he had to be hospitalized. The headline is essentially correct.

Wife recently had this strain, and it was bad. Lingered for weeks before it finally broke.

The Spanish Influenza was what broke the German Army in WWI. More men died from the flu than from battle.

Part of the problem here I think for the young is that they are historically ignorant. They aren´t taught about the 1918 flu that killed so many people worldwide.

After watching a documentary about the lack of hygiene in the WWI camps during the war, I also have to wonder if it wasn´t bird flu that killed all those millions of people. They put the tents so close to the chicken coops holding the chickens that fed them, that during the winter rainy season, it is no surprise that chicken feces might have gotten into the living areas for the men.

I know that this year´s crud was probably the worst I have ever had. You have to take illness serious. You cannot just flick it off.

My dad had the 1918 flu and nearly died of it. He had no medical attention since his parents were Christian Scientists. The positive thing about the experience is that my dad was hardly ever sick a day in his life after that and lived to be just a couple of months short of 100 years old.

Davin Brannon was a pilot, a spearfisherman, an avid cave and open-water diver and an experienced all-around adventurer, said those close to him . "I guess you could say he died doing what he loved," his cousin Pam Kirven said. "But I also know he’d never want to leave his family in this way. He loved us all too much." Brannon was 53 and a Dover resident. He died Saturday while diving in Weeki Wachee’s underwater network of caves known as the Eagle’s Nest, making him the 12th victim of that treacherous system since 1981.

Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said people were entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts. Clearly, Moynihan never dealt with Florida legislators. Because around Tallahassee, facts are fungible. They aren’t just up for debate, they’re up for purchase. You can find legislative priorities that are written like an online dating profile.

As soon as Donald Trump moved into the White House, the American Civil Liberties Union’s membership began growing to 1.6 million, four times bigger than during the Obama administration. Along with filling out ACLU membership cards, liberal/progressive voters also clicked in $93 million in online donations to the organization, an increase of $88 million from the year before. “We have bodies the likes of which we’ve never had before,” said ACLU executive director Anthony Romero. “We actually have dollars the likes of which we’ve never seen before.” With all that new membership and monetary might behind it, Romero told Politico there’s no

Why are so many Americans dying of drug overdoses? Maybe it’s because we’re a nation of junkies. At least that seems to be the finding from a new study that flies in the face of the more widespread view that the opioid crisis is the result of a weak economy. “The fatal overdose epidemic is likely to primarily reflect drug problems rather than the deaths of despair,” states a report published this month by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

MIAMI — The number of legal immigrants from Latin American nations who access public health services and enroll in federally subsidized insurance plans has dipped substantially since President Donald Trump took office, many of them fearing their information could be used to identify and deport relatives living in the U.S. illegally, according to health advocates across the country. Trump based his campaign on promises to stop illegal immigration and deport any immigrants in the country illegally, but many legal residents and U.S. citizens are losing their health care as a result, advocates say.

A 9-year-old student in New Mexico gave fellow students gummies - only to realize later they were not ordinary candies. The candies had apparently been laced with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the chemical responsible for how marijuana affects the brain, and were being used by the student’s parents as medical marijuana. Kristi Del Curto, dean of elementary students at Albuquerque School of Excellence, told the Albuquerque Journal the fifth-grader brought the box of gummies she found at home and shared with friends at the school cafeteria one morning.

WASHINGTON – Sen. Bill Nelson on Sunday offered "another reason" for his vote against the short-term budget, underscoring the delicate politics of the shutdown. "Another reason I voted against the Continuing Resolution Friday night was that it omitted the desperately needed hurricane disaster assistance to help Florida recover. Especially hurt is Florida´s citrus industry, which lost most of its oranges in the storm. They are now teetering on the brink of bankruptcy unless we can get them some help immediately," said Nelson, a Democrat running for re-election. Nelson did not comment before the vote and then initially released a fairly generic statement. "These

Normally so censorious of shutdowns, the media seemed eager for one on Thursday. Pundits offered up preemptive excuses for Senate Democrats who seek to torpedo a deal. The more that Democratic senators behave like hack liberal activists, the more the media cheers them on. The media is in a disruptive mood and sees a shutdown as a win for Trump’s enemies. Even as the House passed a bill to fund the government on Thursday evening, MSNBC contributor Howard Fineman was babbling about the GOP as the party of shutdowns.

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

No one thought it would be technically, financially and politically easy, but the way the project has been mishandled has some Californians fed up and demanding answers.
