    yea nice nice I'll let her know stuff like that and leave it be after because she might just be looking for sympathy if she ignores those facts, hah. Good joke too.

    She just felt really iffy at first and she didn't get much sleep before, then towards the end of the day she was all panicky so it's not like she was kissing me while she thought she had it.

    What do the doctors hand out, anything fun? Benzo's, sleep aids/painkillers. I wouldn't mind some to pass by boring ill time. :laugh: :yes:
    I think you phone your GP or there's a swine flu hotline. It's probably on the nhs site. If you want, they'll make an order for Tamiflu and you go to your nearest collection point to pick it up. Like I said though, it has some side effects and if she's already got an upset stomach, see of she can cope with normal painkillers.

    Offer to go to the pharmacy for her and keep asking how she is but I find being sympathetic but also, realistic helps the other person. Some things that help nausea are apparently mint or ginger flavoured things so tell her to try eating ginger biscuits or chewing gum.
