nope and i wish i just had the tshirt.

Four days was about it for my daughter...she started to feel better after that, although it was a severe 4 days. Hope you feel better soon

i had it for 3 days, wasnt too bad, never had the tamiflu, just paracetemol and ibuprofen

ye it was, i had all the symtoms and was confirmed by a doctor (my mum lol), ive never been ill apart from that and tonsillitis, never get colds, v healthy person, probably why it wasnt bad for me, dunno if thats how it works lol but it makes sense in my head lol

swine flu for 3 days and not taking tamiflu to cure it sounds abit... like a cold

i got it from my gf, she had it worse but mine wasnt bad, stong immune system i guess, its all pish anyway, hyped up by the media

i had it last summer and it was the illest i've ever felt. was pretty bad for over a week then took me another week and a half to recover fully. hope you get better really soon
xx

I had it. Came on very quickly, and I was SO poorly for a full three weeks, then it started to lift, but I've definitely still got the dregs of it. I can't take much of anything the doctor can offer (various reasons) so not being able to take tamiflu probably made it last longer, but I don't think it would really have eased the symptoms significantly. The kids all got it, but being much stronger than me, seemed to cope with just lots of rest and fluids. Still were very poorly, but they bounce back quick don't they. The littlest one was the most concerning, she's only just turned 6 months, and her breathing got so bad she nearly had to be admitted to hospital, but the steaming thingy just about helped her sleep through the whole ordeal. Hubby never caught it, but there's a good chance he passed it on to some chaps at work. They're all being tested this week.

Sucks, but now I don't have to face the to jab or not to jab debate. They all had the flu before the jabs were offered!

I had it,
I took a few doses of tamiflu but it didnt work for me - ended up having some allergic reaction and throwing up everytime i ate something.

Paracetomol is much better, give it a week or so and you'll be back to normal

Get well soon x x

There must be someone who can assist with the children!

I had it in june Couldnt get out of bed for 3 days, couldnt move without falling asleep not fun! Felt better after about 7-8days and totally better after around 10 days didnt take tamiflu as i have allergies to alot of medicines and didnt want to risk it

Oh had it just before xmas and was poorly for 3 weeks, really really bad for 10days

My household as had it apart my from me.
This was 2-3 months ago now!

Hope you get better soon

unfortuantly i havent got anyone who can assist with the kids. i filled in the flu list online and it came up with seriously ill ring 999 for an ambulance. so instead i rang the nhs and told them i didnt want to go to hospital so they have given me instructions to follow. as for my partner he still ******ed off to the gym (selfish sod.) i am lucky that 2 of the daughters are older and they looked after the youngest last night so i could go to bed. still takes the peanuts though as my partner came in a 9pm and got one of the daughters to make him some dinner.
