It's so true

We chat with friends about all sorts of things, things we are worried about, how we feel , illness

We are not asking for a diagnosis, we are asking friends what do you think?

Not expecting a professional assessment

But a considered response

I'm sure if I had told Margaret in my opinion it sounded terminal she wouldn't have arranged her funeral

IMESHO - My philosphy is - go straight to bed, do not pass go, do not collect £200. Don't "soldier on", spreading your germs far and wide.

(I used to hate it when people came to work, coughed and spluttered till 11 am. Then gave up and went home, having infected me and the rest of the staff.)

Let husband/wife wait on you hand and foot, chicken soup, and whatever meds for the symptoms.

Don't get up too soon.

Forget the washing(etc), it may still be there when you recover but so what - anyone in your household running around naked? Drop the conscientious/guilt trip.

Benefits: you will recover quicker and more completely. Spouse will value you when you do get back to normal routine!

Excellent advice Kev and not just for such a viral infection, it also applies after trauma or injury, people rush back and then find they cannot cope and end up making things worse for themselves and those trying to cope with them....

Many people believe that it is best to "man up and get back to the grindstone" even when they are clearly not fit..... I believe now that GP's issue a "Fit" note that you can return to work not that you are too unwell to work.....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Ah but have you given him sufficient opportunity to practice???? You could fake one every now and then, like the city emergency services do.

Mine's repertoire is limited, but when you're sick who needs a full English or roast whatever with all the trimmings???

I have to give mine due credit - when I'm sick, like when I was having chemo, he turns into Florence Nightingale. A blessing indeed!
