Who else has a winter bug they'd like to tell us about.
I tell you what, the next time some one says to me 'Ive got a touch of 'flu', I think I'll slap them, because there is simply no such thing. You can have a severe cold, but this feels like it would kill me if I was elderly or asthmatic (i'm not elderly yet and i've never had asthma). The F@&*ing virus has wasted my holiday. There must be an epidemic in Scotland because about 70 percent of my friends are down with it, and a bit hogmanay party has even been called off because of it.
Solon (c. 630 - c. 500 B.C.), Greek Statesman and Reformer
Sympathies from here, my parents have both been struck down with this virus and spent Christmas being unable to eat and feeling dreadful.
You're right, there's a world of difference between a cold and 'flu, with 'flu there is absolutely no way you can work through it, you simply won't have the strength. It takes ages to get out of your system as well.
My husband was getting one virus after another and started taking ecinacea (sp?) a few months ago. Touch wood, so far, he's missed this one and hasn't been ill at all since he started taking it. (Famous last words!!)
I'm glad you're sort-of back on your feet now, but you won't be running any marathons for a few weeks yet, and I include Mendelsson in that category!
I ventured out to the sales in Dundee today, but couldn't concentrate so had coffee and went home. Imagine not being able to concentrate on new clothes and shiny new shoes?! Oh well!
Yeah, this one starts out as manflu and then goes 'hey buddy, now that we've met, why don't i try to seriously mame or kill you. sound fun?'
I started playing a bit today but coughed on my piano. I'll get the dettol out when i can be arsed. Its an indoor hogmanay for me. Might get some green ginger wine and have a whisky mac.
