Had it a week ago mate :(

 

Pretty much asleep for 4 days straight,

 

 

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?

 

I am asking for a friend

 

Me?  :D

 

Nawwww, thanks Bumpy :wub:

Thanks for all the sympathy, Guys. There was some in there, wasn't there?

For those concerned about the national economy, I didn't cost anybody anything. No free injections, doctor, etc. no sick pay.

I played golf on Sunday, probably shouldn't have.

With not eating for 4 days, I've lost 3Kg.

Now that you ask, I've just had a heap of AFDs.
Time to get back to normal.

Probably a good time to invest in the garage door industry in the Gippsland region.

I am asking for a friend

Antibody CR9114 has been shown to work against both Influenza A and B. It is quite possible that I have a nice supply of it that can beat the mutations.

Researchers are hopeful that CR9114 will eventually be the basis for a universal flu shot.

In the last 20 years I can only remember taking anti-biotics once and that was was an infected big toe caused by an ingrown toenail. There is no doubt that avoiding anti-biotics helps the immune system.

Other than my wine consumption I have a very healthy balanced diet and my weight stays within a 1 kilo range all the time.

I rarely spend time in crowded enclosed spaces full of bugs such as schools and hospitals.

I don't put stress on my body by working out feverishly. Performance athletes and gym junkies seem to regularly succumb to colds and flu. Playing golf 3-4 times per week is enough exercise to keep the vascular system in good shape.

Am I lucky or do I lead a sensible lifestyle.

THE "man-flu", huh?

 

Hmmm, yep, been bitten by that beetch.

 

Did the WRONG thing and didn't rest, so it's lingered, for a few weeks and now my immune system is low and the good 'ole shingles started to flare-up. 

 

Yep. Great stuff.

 

MEGA high doses of Vitamin C and B12 over the last 48 hours seem to have held the progress of the Shingles back. Phew.

 

Rest. Rest. n more Rest.

I reckon we're breeding a nation of softcocks, and its only going to get worse in future years.

 

At the first sign of anything these days, its head for the pills, or the antibiotics.

 

Kids in particular should be made to get out and play in the dirt at every opportunity, to ensure they become immune to anything and everything.

Probably, to both.

I usually have a robust immune system, haven't needed a doc visit for years, but it let me down this time.
Others (many) who seem to have had the same ailment, have been crook for weeks.
I'm almost back to normal after 5 days.

Dr Sues had the flu (or similar) for 3 weeks and then her son caught it.    I had the flu shot and didn't get it at all.   Perhaps because it was a "girl flu"....not sure??

have you ever had an ingrown toenail?

because I am pretty sure if you ever have, that it will mean that you are immune from the flu or something something
