Horrid Head Cold!!!

Saturday night I woke up at 3am, thought someone had a blow torch under my nose. Head is throbing, ears are burning throat is killing me.

Breathing is fine and showing no sign of trouble wish I could say the same for the top half though.

Went to work today and bought disolvable cocodamal, they are doing just the job, took 2 at 10am-2 at 2pm-2 at 6pm then going for another 2 at 10pm.

Well just going to make a hot milky drink and then off to bed, busy day tomorrow and need a clear head.

Keep you all posted how the head cold is getting on, (man flu as the wife says).

Keep clear of any you know have lung conditions then you wont bring them down with you as it can be fatal for seriously ill patients contacting another dose of bugs.

Get the BLF to add Man Flu onto the list of things they support then it can be taken serious
