I'm suffering from man flu atm.
No, it's not the real flu, just a cold that's gone down into my chest and makes me regularly cough up slime.
As I've eaten bugger all in the last few days, my stomach must be full of slime by now.

I have a very sore chest from all the coughing and feel knackered. Not running a temp. Went to bed at 9 last night and got up at 8, convinced that I hadn't slept. Been sitting in a lounge recliner all day feeling sorry for myself.

Surely this is worse than giving birth?

On a positive note, I've lost 1.5Kg in 2 days.

Bring forth the empathy, sympathy, etc.

Had it a week ago mate :(

 

Pretty much asleep for 4 days straight, aching, high temp and knackered. Throat like a 1000 razor blades in there. I got a heap of sympathy from the Mrs...........NOT.

 

 

Ooh, and I think I lost 3k as well. But all gone back on and then some since I got up again. I feel your pain.

Weak as. Probably had a flu injection as it was free. I had flu in 1970 and nothing other than a one day cold ever since. Got the anti-bodies and staying healthy.

Whilst I'm strongly for kids being inoculated for whatever diseases I have my own theories about influenza. If you've had it once don't bother with injections.

Main thing is to be able to recognise when you've got the flu. If you're not bedridden for at least 5 days you've got a cold and you're as soft as marshmallows.

Weak pwicks with a pissy cold cost the economy a fortune each year with their oh poor me sick days.

are you immune from Influenza A if you had Influenza B once?

and are you still immune from each new mutated strands for both too?

what if you are bed ridden for 4 days?

Lol yeah even stopped me going to golf so could almost say was on my death bed! haha

 

Have had the flu injection once and guess what caught the flu that year. Never had the shot before or since and have never had the flu since. Have had viruses(Chest infections, sinus etc) and colds but that's the worst I have had.
