Not at all happy - started on Friday night, felt worse every day since, went to the docs today & I have a throat infection which is now moving into my lungs :cry:

On the drugs now (penicillin & an inhaler if I need it) so hopefully it will start to clear it up pretty quickly but terrible timing...

    I'm full of cold from yesterday so I (kind of) feel your pain.

    Illness sucks.

    What sucks even more is I will have got it from one of the fat lazy ****ers in my office who never excercise! :cry:

    You have my sympathies. I had this a couple of weeks back, and after trying to ride through it decided to do the sensible thing and stay off the bike for the five days I was on antibiotics. I was climbing the walls by the end but went out on day six regardless!

    I've had man 'flu since last monday.
    I thought I was OK for a ride on Friday so I went for a 10 mile pootle. By the time I got home it felt like I had raced 100 miles. I spent all of last weekend in bed and my bedroom had more used tissues in it than a teenage boy's bedroom after he discovered free online porn.

    Today was my first day back on the bike since Friday and I did the 12 miles slowly and I now feel very tired.

    Early night for me, methinks.

    Been dosing up on vitamin c to hopefully not get the traditional spring cold. Nothing worse than finally having warm evenings and being stuck in bed. Not rubbing it in fellahs :wink:

    The vit c obviously works if I haven't got the sniffles :P

    Thanks for all the sympathy - much appreciated.

    Feel a bit better today but still not great. Discovered this morning that the back of my tongue is turning black - seems to be a symptom of the infection, from what I can discover. Very pleasant..

    Enjoy the long weekend & the weather - don't worry about us sickies...

    Got a cold - had it since Monday - typical its when the weather is great....

    Have no energy what so ever, been doing things like replacing my worn cleats and cleaning my shoes, put a new rear tyre on as well.

    Bored now.

    My wife's had a cold & throat infection for 2 weeks.
    My son's had a cold that's come and gone in that time.

    So far, I've not picked anything up ... fingers crossed ....

    I walked up 3 flghts of stairs about an hour ago & spent over 15 minutes non-stop coughing & considering if I should call an ambulance as I couldn't breathe :evil: Who needs an open throat?
