Anybody else had a dose of the flu?
We had a lovely New Year in Malaga with great weather for first week in January, but also lots of hugging and kissing ( on cheeks) welcoming in the New Year.
The day before we came home we both started with a cough, the shivers and just couldn't get warm.
The journey home was horrible, thank goodness there were no delays.
I walked in the house, took off my clothes, got into bed and lost 2 days of my life. Dave struggled further for the next 24 hours and then he had to stay in bed.
It totally zapped us both, you haven't got the strength to get out of bed, and from Sunday until Tuesday night I had nothing to eat at all, and just sips of water when Dave kept coming in the bedroom to check I was still alive.
Dave never gets poorly, but this put him in bed for a couple of days and we're both still getting over it.
Both young and old are losing their lives to this latest viral attack.
Just hope I haven't spoken too soon!!!!
Mind you I was really peed off today walking through a shopping centre. I heard it before I saw it, this loud barking cough. I then spotted the owners. Man & woman walking along, he keeps bending practically doubled over, whilst, mouth wide open, attempts to regurgitate his lungs! She was marginally better as at least she was upright.
I grabbed the neck of my jumper & pulled it up to my eyes (luckily was a big rolled neck one) as we passed them hoping they'd get the hint to cover their bloody mouths!
I hope you are both better soon & am so sorry the last day of your holiday was spoilt. Nothing worse than having to travel when your ill.
I remember last year having a really heaving cold. Started on boxing Day & we were flying to Fuerteventura on the 5th January. There was no way could I have packed my suitcase had it been any closer to travelling so I feel for you both xxx
At the moment we are flying to the UK every few weeks and it's odds on that one of us will pick up a cold from someone on the plane. OH has had two since the beginning of December already.
This flu is in a league of its own. When you get it, you'll know this ain't no cold.
On the flight home I thought my head would explode with the pain and every part of your body aches. You're burning up, yet have cold shivers, it was 3 hours of not knowing what to do with yourself and I cannot remember the short journey home from Donny airport.
Dave is up and pottering around the house, but he's tiring very easily, and like me, he hasn't been through the door since arriving home. Luckily we have plenty of food in the freezer and any weight we might have gained eating in a 4 star hotel with gala meals has been lost since arriving home.
You get the cheaper version via the NHS.
We go to the local chemist for convenience 👍 My doctor is a car ride away.
