We seldom ever get the flu. We try to eat natural foods void of white flour, white suger, etc so as to pevent disease.
The number one most effectlive thing you can do to avoid getting the flu is to wash your hands frequently, particularly if you live or work in a larger city where you come into contact with a lot of people, particularly lots of people who are coming and going from other places.
Indeed, the worst flu bug I ever had I contracted after going to dinner to a tapas bar with a large group of people that included someone contaigous. Since it was tapas, we all shared plates. Ten out of 12 of us became ill; the two who didn't had gotten their flu shot that year.
Good diet, avoiding dehydration, regular exercise, enough sleep, and a positive outlook are all important for a healthy immune system as well.

Re: Getting there
glad to hear you are doing better.
Now, DO take your full course of antibiotics, and DO start washing your hands more and drinking more water (and fewer pints ).
