EEjit surviving Swine flu
Thanks for all your good wishes, mucho appreciated. No swab test done to prove but Dr says in all likelyhood it's swine flu.They only test (here) if you have serious symptoms,.These 'mild' symptoms leave you feeling like you have been hit by a double decker bus (pains all over, hands, thighs and particularly back of chest,mine felt like I had been beaten with lump hammers, complete inability to move from the bed,wild horses wouldn't drag you nor a thousand euro tempt you,raging sweats -gallons of it and then frozen chillsan intense unlifting headache,chesty cough,occasional vomitting and that worrying feeling that you are dreadfully ill) so I sincerely pity the poor people whose symptoms are worse. Had a rotten interminable night last night,the worst of all, and yet here I am, hours later, at the computer again ,clearly over the worst and getting better.
