    It's not a flu, it's something more, something really dangerous...

    Technically it does help. If you wrap up, with gloves and a scarf. The scarf acts as an epic barrier against germs flying around, and the gloves mean you dont put your fingers in your mouth when germs are on them.
    hadn't thought of that haha, good point! but the act of actually getting the virus from being cold, naaaah :P

    Maybe just jealous because you don't have the legs for skirts?

    As for Xmas... I have so much to do and I have been ill for almost a week... it's just so not pleasant I want to start doing work so I can relax later...

    I'm ill all year round but since I got to uni it's been so much worse. I think I've had 3 or 4 really bad colds since the start of October, and I was in bed with the flu the whole last week of uni. I'm still recovering from a bad cold and no doubt I'll have this until I go back.

    I'm wondering whether it could be an allergy? Can anyone shed any light on this?

    thank you for that, little bit rude no? I may not have the best legs, but yes i can wear short skirts, and do, but not with barely anything else, and in this weather! that's just pointless and idiotic to freeze to death for the sake of showing too much skin.

    yeah i've been ill for 2 months and nothing can be done about it, got nooo energy, constantly dizzy and get shakey and really bad stomach pains and headaches, and constantly groggy and sometimes can barely move from tiredness. plus the uni work, shouldn'thave chosen such a difficult uni course worth it though

    Rude? I was hoping you get mad and try and prove me wrong by posting pics up :sexface: lonely nights brings out the nasties...

    Two months?! for the past few days I have had crazy headaches and shivering, stomachaches and unbearable chest coughs... If I had that for two months I would cry my self to death! I have so much work to do though, that's the real problem... Have you done any work at all whilst ill? I haven't and I couldn't. I guess I'm a softie

    I've been ill since sunday and it's REALLY PISSING ME OFF because, typically, I was fine for the entire semester, despite two of my housemates hacking all over the place.

    I have the god damn flu. I want to rip my head from my body. I can't even suffer in relative comfort, my neck aches in every position and my head is pulsating with the myriad of pains I seem to have. Sob sob, woe woe.

    ahaah okthen :P nice effort! i don't get mad easily, but you're out of luck, i don't do that anyway, wouldn't, and my boyfriend is on here somewhere lol doubt he'd be impressed!

    yeaaah the doctors reckon it could be some type of anemia but my red blood count is fine so they dont really know and i need moreblood tests frustrating when its gone on so long and i can't do anything about it haha. sometimes i feel better but just a bit dizzy and lacking energy. done 5 hours of work today, my course is demanding and this project is 10 pages plus computer programming codes which are ridiculous (for me, anyway, hate computer programming ), but i've been avoiding it mostly :P don't have much choice but to do it, the course is so demanding and if i want to go to america for my 3rd year then i have to get minimum 50% in everything, plus i want a first :P

      My whole family have been fine this year *touch wood*. In fact, I don't think I've had Christmas cancelled due to illness for about 12 years now :party:

      If you get ill, please cover your mouth and wash your hands as often as possible. Nothing worse than being absolutely fine, getting on a bus one day and somebody goes out of their way to hack all over the place with zero attempt at hygiene.

      One family member has swine flu, another has foot-and-mouth, it's like a total media cliche. Three other family members also have colds.
