    I am practically the only person I know who hasn't got it. The constant barrage of coughing in lectures is grating!!

    I'm coming out the other side of it. It's not been too horrendous, just felt a bit crap and coldy. I slept loads this weekend and have pretty much recovered.

    I felt like death personified when I got up this morning (no exaggeration). Think I may have some kind of sickness bug as well guess that means no indian takeaway for me tonight.

    Urgh. I've got it. Although I've decided to rebrand it "man flu" as that means I can moan more . Can't remember the last time I could breathe through my nose/talk and sound normal/go out without three jumpers and a scarf. I went out the other night and started seeing double, so I'm taking it easy for a while now. Still, means girly movies with my corridor and lots of hot lemonade!!

    I got it as soon as I had a conversation about it with a 2nd year. But I probably got it because he had caught it too, and I went out a bit too much that weekend.

    Fresher's Flu != Actual flu

    I highly doubt many people get proper flu while they are in their first few weeks of uni. I was always under the impression that fresher's flu is just a bad cold
    Surely it's called Freshers Flu because of the alliteration?

    I've had a cold this past week. I had one day where I felt complete turd but the rest has been ok enough to still carry on with every day stuff. I had a terrible cold last year and only recovered when I finally decided to go home.

    :eek: How can you say that?? Squeeze half a lemon, add hot water to the juice then about four teaspoons of sugar and tell me it's yucky. It's the one good thing about being all ill!

    I haven't had the full lot of it. I have a bit of a cold etc but a few of my flatmates and friends have had it really badly so I'm quite glad I haven't caught it. I have to go and have a flu jab tonight as well!

    Exactly. Fresher's Moderatly Bad Cold doesn't have the same ring to it. I was just clearing it up as there seemed to be some confusion
