I think I had swine flu this week without even realising it!
I have just been talking to a friend who is a doctor. She was telling me about how her husband has swine flu. He has a slight fever, headaches and aching limbs, but isn’t feeling that bad. I had this earlier in the week! I felt a little bit rough, but took a few paracetamols and battled on, as you always do when you have two children to look after.
Swine flu is a real talking point in our town at the moment, as there have been a quite a few confirmed cases. Everyone is really worried, but like everyone else I assumed it was much more serious than my doctor friend now confirms it is. It is a much milder disease than normal flu at the moment and most people don’t even realise they’ve had it.
I think I must have caught it on my trip into London for Simon and Kim’s Book Group! Have any of you who attended this group also had these symptoms?
It is quite ironic that I was reading my Flu book when I had it! I’ll hopefully be able to finish this book over the weekend and tell you all about it!
Is swine flu in your town?
Have you had it? Are you worried?
