Yeah you couldn’t make it up.

i spent the best part of the warmest days in bed with flue and couldn’t decide whether to shiver or pour with sweat.

now the damp weather has done its best to make a nasty chest infection even worse.

at least it was an excuse to stop in today.

Oh I know how you feel I had a bad cold to start last month which turned into a chest infection and after numerous times of ringing my GP to get an appointment they said they would treiage me over the phone and then the doctor would decide if I needed antibiotics but they kept giving me phone appointments when I was at work so I had to decline and do you know what she said to me “ you can’t take any of these phone appointments “ I said “no”

then she said “ well it’s begs the question whether your actually ill” 

i said “when I want a receptionist to diagnose me I will ask”

not knocking any receptionists just this one 

So I kicked off and they just left me a prescription

I couldn’t get an appointment until the following week so other than the two minutes the receptionist spent convincing me to stop being a drain on the NHS and just grow a pair it’s ended up being plenty of rest and strong tablets from over the counter.

3 day’s is the longest time i’ve been off work for 20 years though so whatever it was, it’s a nasty little sod.

Have have you got antibiotics if not you need them it won’t go away in it’s own

They won’t usually give them for flu unless you’ve already been measured for your coffin.

the chesty crap came afterwards and they tell you to let it go by itself but if it doesn’t go pretty sharpish they’ll have to give me something

Flu itself is viral and antibiotics won't help.  However any secondary infection could turn out nasty.  In my case a minor chest infection developed into (bacterial) double pneumonia with pleural oedema that put me in hospital for couple of weeks, and two courses of  Doxycycline and then one of Amoxicillin.  This was at the end of last November.

Recovery from pneumonia can take several months and I still have relapses. The lousy British winter doesn't help.

 Might be worth keeping an eye out this evening. Possibly about to turn to snow at Caernarfon.

Green phlegm is a green light to go to the doctor
