Now I’m not saying only Brits get the flu, but I only seem to see us vocalising about just how badly we’re ‘dying’ from it. Other countries have Malaria, HIV/Aids and other deadly diseases, yet do we hear the poor people suffering from those conditions complaining 24/7? No, no we do not. I guess its just a completely British trait. For the past few days I have been at the wrath of the flu, breathing heavier than Darth Vader and looking less alive than Frankenstein. There’s been nothing that could help me, no one could stop me feeling sorry for myself. My whole room has been turned into one big fume of Olbas oil and Vicks mixed together, to be honest it’s strong enough to clear even Voldemort’s nose. As much as Olbas oil and Vicks do help they are only a temporary option. Yesterday I got myself a saline spray, which I must admit I was pretty worried about just spraying up my nose, with good reason. The moment after I sprayed this mist up into my nostril my whole mouth could taste it, where does it say about this on the packet?! I was not prepared and my mouth felt violated by the surprise attack. On the bright side it did make breathing a lot easier and I was able to get a good nights sleep. All in all though I’m definitely not through the worst yet, pray for me.
