Default Getting a cold!

How the hell can I be getting a cold when it's 30odd degrees outside!
Hope it isn't the start of the 'dreaded manflu'

Could be a few days off work and spend time on the beach recovering

Is this your first March out here? If so, could be the real UAE Flu - a really nasty version that could have you in bed for a week or more. Many people get it in their first year, usually when the weather starts getting warmer & all the viruses are about.

Let's hope you survive...

Gee......... good morning to you too!!
Only been here since Nov. I suppose I will get used to it eventually. It doesn't help going in and out of air conditioned buildings/car etc.
I better go and make my will. If I don't post for a few days send the paramedics round to my house!! (maybe with a body bag )

Seriously - I reckon the general atmosphere here is really unhealthy. The first year id when everyone gets various illnesses. I had a really bad bout of flu (major antibiotics, in bed a week) - my first in 15 years!

Most people do survive though!



Oh yeah - Happy Easter!

Default Re: Getting a cold!

I'm getting worried now!
I need a nice young lady to look after me, bring me lemsip and tomatoe soup and bread (with the crusts cut off!) and to rub Vicks into my chest.
Might have to see if I can drown the germs with beer/wine tonight.
