Would I Still Fancy A Pint If I Had Swine Flu?

I have a stinkin cold and the NHS Direct website obviously tells me I should nail my doors shut and prepare for the onslaught of zombie flu...

But... I've never had flu before, the advice is to drink plenty of liquids and I quite fancy a pint, it is possible to have swine flu but still fancy a cheeky pint or two?

As long as you don't pig out too much you should be ok? HTH :thumbsup:

Are you on any medication?

In short.............no. :-D If you had real flu you'd just want to go to bed.

That's what I thought... It's clearly a cold but even more people than usual are avoiding me! :thumbsup:

So the general consenus is then that... yes, flu is that disabilitating (sp?) that I would not fancy a cheeky pint or two?

Agreeing with Sy!
If you feel like a couple of pints, then you may or may not have swine flu but you're not very ill, so a couple of pints aren't going to harm you if you're not on any meds.

I rarely get ill so have little to compare it to, if that makes sense?

Yup - she's right.

I have only ever had flu once in my long life....Lasted a total of 5 days and I couldnt get out of bed and thought I had a brain tumour!
at the beginning of the Swine Flu outbreak I caught a cold, a simple summer cold.......and got sick to death of people asking me if I had swine flu everytime I had to blow my nose!

condolences

i thought it was ridiculous when they made a huge fuss over the amount of reported cases dropping by 75% or whatever it was, maybe tht was because the stopped testing for it

It was probably all the chavs getting it to sell on

go for it !
