That is one seriously fucked up series of jabs :thumbsup:


Do Drunk Daleks get flu? After all you've learnt to climb stairs finally, a bit of a milestonestep for you.

But Who knew.

Walmart?


No, at my doctors office, I had to have some labs run at the same time.

I sometimes get a cold in the winter but the last time I had flu was 11 years ago, I basically stayed in bed for a month.


:yikes:

That sounds an excessively long time to recover.


Well yeah, it was the flu, not just a bad cold, which some people equate to the flu. Sweat and sleep was my life at that time.


According to the web, you should have recovered from flu after a max 2 weeks.

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/flu/


Thats just bullshit, designed to discourage people from seeking medical advice... for the elderly and anyone with heart/lung conditions, even young people it can be a killer.... at best can take months to recover fully!


Look I'm talking about the average person. I have no idea about Nucks personal circumstances.

For one thing I didn't know she got flu in a country outside of the UK.

If people don't fill in the blanks then you can only go on average times for the average person.

I wasn’t in the uk so those guidelines don’t apply. :snooty:

:mrgreen:


... and anyway it says nothing on his link about a maximum two weeks. More jra nonsense.


That was on some other websites, as in playing it safe.

My boss has booked us all in for one. Cheaper than forking out for supply staff when flu does the rounds. I had it last year & had a rotten cold afterwards. Hope it was just coincidence.

Nah, they will just release any old injection and hope for the best. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:


It does make you wonder as to how much research has gone into this added ingredient! :dunno:

:gigglesnshit: Probably. It’s possible that “most” people recover from the flu after two weeks but there will always be exceptions. I wasn’t officially diagnosed but I had the usual symptoms and the last thing I wanted to do was go to my doctor’s office. I could barely get out of bed never mind the house.
