Has anyone else got....

Hey....Has anybody else got........................THE FLU? I have the dreaded flu :( So I'm stuck here with my duvet on the sofa watching TV with the warm lappy on my knee watching HorseAndCountry Tv online  Lucky for some? Well it isn't as nice as you would think, I can't taste the food I eat at all (even chilli!) my nose is bright red and sore from all the tissues  But I guess it's the last few days of school (all of the well peeps will finish tomorro at my school) so mum says I will have to give out cards and presents when I go back! There is an uplift tho, I can search on 'Horsemart' for a horse and I can have a good browse  Has anyone else got it? Speak soon x

No dont have the flu

The best thing to do when you have the flu is get up out of bed & get cracking!

Think when you have your dream horse,you wont be able to stay in bed with the flu! the horse will still have to be fed,so get in some practice & get up & go for a walk.

Sorry i would make a rubbish nurse!

The more time i spend with people the more i love my animals!!

The doc told me that when you have the flu you should take a paracetemol product and do as little as possible.  It lets your body use the energy to fight the virus.  Moving around, moves the virus around your body and keeps it there for longer so it can be a good couple of weeks before its out your system.  It also puts your heart and lungs under more pressure.  Not to mention, if you have the flu you actually cant get your head off the pillow even if you wanted to!  You feel so weak and cant stay awake.  Your also only like to get the flu perhaps twice in a life time if your unlucky.  Theres a difference between actual flu and a really bad cold, which can give flu type symptoms.

Trust me, if you've had flu, you can not move.  I had it when I was 14 and all I can say is oh my god!

Ive got a really bad chesty cough at the moment, it sucks!

Re: Has anyone else got....

Haha looks like a bad cold, every muscles aches at the moment :( I suppose there's weak flu and really bad flu. My friend went the doctors and was diagnosed with weak flu, but she still managed to talk on msn!! I have everything: chesty cough, blocked nose, can't taste ANYTHING, feel sick, got a headache....The list goes on!! But reading that Vik I wouldn't say me nor my friend have the flu, feels like I get worse EVERYDAY! I have prescribed parecetamol and then lemsip, vaseline (for sore nose after all the tissues) 1 box of tissues (got through a packet already I think!), galaxy choc ( :p ) umm an olbas sniffer (Can't smell it) strong soup with LOADS of pepper in (can't taste it!) and a few other things I've forgot! Merry christmas!! x
