    How is the man-flu

    Post by Gypsy on Mon 15 Oct 2012 - 9:41

    Gotta say I am feeling better today, look awful but feeling OK, so wondering how LR is getting on - are you back at work? - Bloomin awful when you start feeling ill at the weekend but come a Monday everything is hunky dory. :doc1:

    Thanks for reminding me, I must phone the medical centre and make an appointment for my flu jab,

    Last year I went down for my jab and there were about 30 of us old codgers of both sexes having jabs, after you were given your jab the nurse said "have a seat for 5 mins after your jab, ok went outside to the waiting room only to discover that it was only men who were taking her advise, the women had all left and gone on their way , what are men like? wimps or what?

    I'm not too bad if I dose up on those flu tablets. I'm using Lemsip Max, daytime cold and flu capsules. A couple every 4 hours. If I forget to take them along comes the runny nose and streaming eyes.

    Careful Max 5g Paracetemol per 24 hours they say. 7g is enough to do irreversable liver damage.

    I've been taking two (500mg/cap) three times a day, so 3grams/day for the last two days.

    Yeah, that is the Lemsip capsules. Or do you mean the drink? I've only had 2 of those all weekend. I'm turning into a druggie! Help! What's the Samaritan's number?
