Somehow we got sidetracked.
I only commented several posts ago that you can generally tell if you have the cold or a flu by the severity of the symptoms. Then I suggested checking for fever. I believe many people do mistake their cold for the flu. But in my experience, people that really have the flu (full blown; symptoms; etc), are pretty much in bed for at least a day or two. But it is (quite) possible to function with a (bad) cold.
But yes, I understand that the immune system can fight off the virus and you may never have any symptoms at all.
