So many middle fingers.
Seriously, though, I'm feeling a bit better. When I'm a bit more motivated (still have the flu-muddled attention span of a gnat at this point), I'm going to compile the list of suggestions above and repost it as a "MAOI-User's Guide to the Flu."
P.S. Why does one faint in the shower, exactly? Here's a guess: The sudden temperature change (I'm assuming you need pretty hot water to get this) creates a rapid dilation of blood vessels near and in the dermis (to help regulate body temperature), and this, in turn, leads to a rapid drop in blood pressure. If combined with other factors (like drug side effects or illness, or both), the overall effect can be large enough to lead to a fainting spell. Is this anywhere near accurate?
