    Anyone else got a cold?

    I'm dying! AT least that's what it feels like, everyone in my house has a cold, the kids have been up and down all night, and my nose feels like the snot tap has been turned on. Apparently it is doing the rounds, so am I suffering alone or are there others like me out there?

    Was off work last week with it. One of my minions had it worse, he got tonsillitis as a result.

    Just finished getting over two weeks of sore throat and stinking cold.
    I'm a fighter, though, and love my job so much I still came in to work... not that anyone appreciated that

    I've been to the doctors, who decided I also had a chest infection and promptly gave me some anti-biotics and an inhaler.

    Im still going to work because I am taking a week off with the rest of the staff and I have far FAR too much to do.

    Im milking the drinks and sympathy though ... im over the worst but don't tell anyone.

    Bin tryin for years to catch what everyone else apart from webman succumbs to with no success in 7 years.
    Soft is what I calls it here up North, flu jabs and gas central heating has a lot to do with it.
    No gas in our village so it's coal central heating, water from bore hole out in the back yard, netty (toilet to you southerners) in tha backyard having to brek ice before avin a tinkle, nowt wat a bit a backbone an some raw meat wouldn't sort eh!!!

    I'm feeling like cr@p right now. All light-headed and spaced out and my ears hurt. Whoopee.

    Loads of people off with it here over the last couple of weeks.

    I find I usually manage to save my turn to be ill for the weekends or the holidays....s'not fair.

    :-)

    Sniffing like a git. So is NM. Missus is too. Not progressed to a cold yet - still a mere annoyance.

    Went home last week and took a day off as I felt like I was dying.

    Pepped up, back to work and then took a couple of days holiday. Last night, I seem to come down with it again, can't stop shivering and spent a few close minutes sitting by the toilet.

    This has got to be the worse cold/flu I've every had, but I understand a lot of people at my School are suffering.

    Just sitting in bed with my laptop now to try to stop the boredom, everytime I sleep I wake up feeling sick.

    Pete
