I used to work with someone who regularly had "24 hour 'flu" when he was on the Sunday shift. We called it a monumental hang-over as he drank "not wisely but too well", if you get my meaning.

Thanks for the good wishes. The ribs are still sore but getting there. The staff at the stables are so apologetic that they are doing me lots of favours!
Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

The true "flu" is a serious long respiratory illness, with other nasty symptoms. It can be deadly to many.
With all the blood drawn, a complete series of X-rays, a lung specialist checking me and my own doctor keeping an eye on me, it was determined that it was not the flu. I never had a temp of any aches in my bones or muscles. I had a deep chest cold and I kept an eye out to make sure the phlegm did not change color to green. Then I would know I had pneumonia.

Since young childhood I have been exposed to just about every viral illness a child can catch. Chicken pox, measles, whooping cough, you name it, I was exposed to it. When I talked to my doctor about this, he told me that it was his guess that due to the amount of colostrum I received from my mother nursing me, it gave me a built-in immunity. I simply do not catch the flu. I am the one who takes care of those that do.

Illegitimi non carborundum!
