What are some things to eat when you have the flu and are unable to keep things up? (19 years old)

Sadly, I don't live alone. I live with my mother and she is very protective of me. She keeps me from going anywhere and I have no job. I don't even have friends and my other family members can care less about us.

The only thing we have here is Pepto-bismol; in case any of us get sick, but I've used it before when I had the flu really bad and it made me worse.

We don't have any fruits or things like ginger ale, almonds, etc. We do have toast though.

Also, our water comes from a well and it does taste metallic, so I barely even drink it because I'm afraid of getting sick from it. If I do drink it when I'm sick, it might just make me worse, who knows?

I don't have the flu yet, but it is flu season, and I just want to be prepared.

Another thing, I do think I have a weak immune system, because I always end up sick somehow; even though I take my multivitamins and go nowhere and never around sick people actually.

You need lots of rest and fluids the most but if you can eat anything, have chicken soup. that helps, really! If not try chicken pie if you have it on hand. I order Chicken won ton soup from the local Chinese restaurant. That helps the most.

PS. At first I thought you had the flu. To prevent flu you should get plenty of rest. Also, think of how you are going to get a job and move out. You have to have a plan of action. Your mom's psychology is not very good and it's hurting you even more. Do you have heat in that place? It is important to keep warm in case you get the flu. Buy some bottled water.

If youre nineteen your mom cant legally keep you from going anywhere. It would be kidnapping or unlawful imprisonment. Youre an adult for goodness sake!! Im kinda worried. Do you know whst Munchousens by Proxy syndrome is? Its when an adult, usually a parent, deliberately injures or makes sick a child in order to gain attention for themselves OR to keep that child dependant on you.
If you truely feel trapped and arent
being given propper food and medical care you are being abused. Call the police or adult protective services. ASAP!!!
