Are there many bugs going around? I seem to get them all!

Stomach bug three weeks ago, nasty cold two weeks ago, and still recovering from it. I feel dizzy, sinusy, headachy, fed up... Is it just me?

nope - at home today with a bug which has floored me sad

there's a note up in nursery about tummy bugs going around, so it's not just you being got at by the beasties - not much comfort though.

Hope you get better soon

Thanks! I think that having young kids brings all the bugs home, I've had quite a few this winter...

Same here! Have picked up every single bug going recently. Chesty cough and aches right now. Am a teacher with 3 small peskies so that is my reason! Am going to do a serous immunity boost - vit c, zinc, hot ribenna - you name it!

I'm a teacher too, with two little ones at home! I'm going to investigate about immunity boost, and definitely getting flu jab in autumn. Thanks, sometimes I feel I'm the only one...

By the way, how long should I expect a virus to last? this last one has been a week of feeling under the weather...

We got something off DD, who has recently started going to the playgroup i.e. picks up every bug going.

It's been two weeks now and no signs of improvement. Mine went into chest after a week so am coughing my lungs out, DP has it in his sinuses. It sucks.

A normal cold usually lasts about a week, but if you get bronchitis or something like that, it can lasts for fucking ages.
