A doctor told me this "joke" a while back"
A man walks into the pharmacy and tells his pharmacist, "Doc, I have a terrible flu, what can you give me to make me feel better".
Pharmacist replies, "You don't have the flu, you have a cold".
Man asks, "How do you know that".
Pharmacist replies, "Because you're here".
Point being, when you have the flu (instead of a cold), you aren't up walking around. It really knocks you on your *****.
The further point is that people often mistake a (bad) cold for the flu.
