Well, I'm not 100% sure if I should be oinking - based on the NHS website, I have all the symptoms of the dreaded swine flu, but then again it could just be any of the 1000s of other flu bugs out there as well.
Whichever one it is, I'm feeling very sorry for myself. It arrived of friday and seems to be getting worse not better.
I was able to get a bit of sewing done yesterday to distract myself but today I have barely got up from my bed.
What is most disappointing is that I take a magic potion to stop this sort of thing happening to me. I moved to London at 2 and the pollution didn't agree with me. I started off with whooping cough and for most of my life I was prone to getting anything and everything doing the rounds and they always ended up as chest infections. About 7 years ago I started taking Aloe Vera and it boosted my immune system so much that since then I've only had a couple of days with a cold - until now! I guess I thought it was invincible and that the flu wouldn't effect me.
How wrong I was.
