Cannot believe this - The WORST thing to possibly happen!

Re: Cannot believe this - The WORST thing to possibly happen

It's a good thing the old Infectious Diseases Act is not still in force - the one that said that returning library books after you'd had an infectious disease was a criminal offence, etc. Under that you would qualify for the cat with nine tails rather than a mere guinea pig with no tail.

I'm sure everyone present at the informal talk is going to be really pleased that you'll be passing on your highly infectious condition to them. Have you thought of ringing them up today for advice first?

Always - quick question - is gay man flu worse than regular man flu?!!

Or is it proper flu like us ladies get?!

The guinea pig in the room is definitely going! I had another chest infection about 1 1/2 months ago! To have another one in this close proximity since the last one definitely points to the little bugger giving me the flu!

It's not the guinea pig's fault. You have a virus - loads of people at work have bad colds or the flu at the mo.

As to what to do - take paracetamol regularly (1g every 6 hours)and drink plenty of water.

If you still feel like shit tomorrow then don't go - you will not be thanked for sharing your germs with all and sundry so close to Christmas. If you decide not to go, then make a courtesy phone call to let them know. It will be pretty obvious to the person on the other end of the phone if you sound like death warmed up.

Try this for a cure. Pour one large glass of whisky, knock it straight back, pour another one and take large sips, after about five or six of these, you should be in a state to take on the world, in an emergency Rum will do (Tho personally I`ve never touched the stuff since 31 July 1970) Best of luck.

LOL Well so far I've taken 1 anti-biotic pill and had a Lem-Sip and I'm feeling a million times better!

I'll be back to normal for the presentation! No problem!

It sounds like a pretty nasty virus you have, but possibly not the flu', though who knows what it'll be like tomorrow.

I'd give the AFCO a ring and see if you can put it back a while. The first meeting is generally very informal and you probably wouldn't be there too long, but if you feel as bad as you say (with the potential to get worse), you don't want to risk passing anything on. If tomorrow it does turn out to be the flu', you won't be able to roll out of bed, let alone get to the AFCO. And by then it will be too late to make the call! So rest, rest, rest, drink lots of water and make that call. It's frustrating (i had to put my aptitude test back due to medical reasons), but you'll thank yourself for it.

Well thats all good. If you ever get through training and join a ship and its alongside, you will need to get a grip of yourself. Imagine the young lovelies of Rhyl waiting on the RNLI slipway (allegedly) and you spend the evening running around the chemist for lemsip before trying to get some kiwi from argos. FFS this smacks of shag order! :lol:

Get on the CSB have a pot noodle and turn to!
 
Re: Cannot believe this - The WORST thing to possibly happen

Well I'm pleased to say I'm all better!

That was the fastest Flu-spell I've ever had!

I'm all dressed up in my new clothes, got a 'short' hair-cut and brand new shoes!

Wish me luck!
