    Them blimin piglets.:mad:
    I have gone and got swine flu i have had it since last Friday.
    Started the Tamiflu a good few days back.
    But i am sure they are making me feel even worse.
    I have crippling stomach cramps from them.
    I really would not wish this illness on anyone its horrid.
    I am actually up and about the last few days.
    But still my whole body is very weak,and i am glowing not sweating.
    My poor Father In Law who lives with us is doing all the dog walking in shifts.
    Just hope he does not catch it he is much older in his 70's.

    They do say that Tamiflu only lessens the symptoms by about one day and can have bad side effects. So id personally rather not take anything for it and improve my immune system for when the stronger strains come about. :)

    My neice has also suffered pretty badly with it, and has a 2 year old child.

    Some people are lucky and have only mild symptoms, while others are hit really hard.

    Glad you are feeling better, and hope your back to full fitness soon :)

    Just getting over it, I didn't realise how ill it made you and how weak you get, just been taking paracetamol. I think the worst is over now, "Well I hope so".
    The only good thing about it is, I'm saving money so when I feel better I'm off to the shops.:D
