Been ill all weekend, was off work on friday and don't think I'll be in tomorrow.

Next year I'm getting the flu jab.

Ebola in its initial stage is often mistaken for the flu.

think I'm safe, been feeling crap since thursday afternoon and as yet theres no blood coming out of my ears.

So its not ebola.

Probably bells palsy

to add to the comedy value I spent most of last week teaching about infectious diseases...

To be fair, I've never seen it written with a ' before.

Must be a biologist thing.

I'm so glad about the worst effects I get from flu is an annoying cough...:)

The inverted commas indicating that you say it's flu but it's really just a cold?

Finally we are getting to the bottom of the fact that Beta actually has a case of 'manflu'...:D

Basically you get a little teensy-weensy cold and the whole World grinds to a calamitous halt for at least a week to the abject misery all those around the stricken 'victim' - usually the long-suffering wife/girlfriend...:lol:

Funko

ie. ridiculous sexist generalisation which is why I hate it.

You never know if you aren't really experiencing the first stage of ebola. It's entirely warranted to take the matter extremely seriously.
