CNN PRODUCER NOTE Instagram user jmkunz78 photographed her flu survival kit on January 10. She says this is by far the worst illness she has ever had. 'It came on very fast and the recovery is slow. It really knocked me out,' she said. She says she did not get a flu shot because she typically never gets one. Her flu survival kit is comprised of cough drops, sports drinks, a thermometer and a variety of cold and flu medications. She says she doesn't have a suggestion for home remedies when it comes to treating the flu other than getting enough rest. 'I've never had the flu before, but lots of rest and bad TV seem to help with any illness,' she said.
