Thread Name: BS: Flu Vaccine Shortage
Subject: RE: BS: Flu Vaccine Shortage
Ah, you want to try gastric flu.... all the joys you have mentioned above, plus the beauty of a 'runny bum'. I spent 3 days wrapped in a duvet, on the toilet, cuddling a bucket. I swear I lost nearly 2 stones in as many days. It took nearly 3 weeks to recover properly, and another 8 to put back the lost weight! And those were the days when I could wear a size 12 dress (not that I ever did....)

The last time I had ordinary flu was the time that Limpit decided to bite the end off a thermometer... in Casualty the nurse started checking ME over!

And yes, that was the year I got the flu vaccine.....
