A medical experiment-Porkie Flu

According to the infallible National Pandemic Flu Service Angus has got trotters cough, or H1N1, or swine flu as it is lovingly known.

I have checked my symptoms against the list and have been issued with an authorisation number for anti-virals.

I know I have said many times that I wouldn’t touch Tamiflu with Gordon Brown’s, but in the interest of science I have decided to prostitute myself for the public good , and anyway, every little helps.

Add that to the fact that I am a man and can’t take any pain or discomfort without falling into bed for a week, and Tamiflu is nearing its sell by date it seems the sensible thing to do.

All I have to find now is a “Flu Friend” to go and get the things for me and I am all set.

What are the symptoms of swine flu?
The symptoms of swine flu are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular seasonal flu. People with swine flu typically have a fever or high temperature (over 38°C/100.4°F) and two or more of the following symptoms:

unusual tiredness, -Yes
headache -Yes
runny nose, - Yes
sore throat -Yes
shortness of breath or cough, -Oh yes
Loss of appetite, - No, at least not yet.
aching muscles, -Yes
diarrhoea or vomiting.- Sort of

Plus a temperature of 38.9 C,

Up to now I have been taking Lemsip, and resting, so if I may I would like to do a daily diary of how much I am suffering and the difference if any Tamiflu makes, this is of course in order to give a totally impartial view of the treatment and to illicit as much sympathy and parcels of goodies etc as I can.

As I will be confined to the house for a while I staggered out at 11pm last night to stock up on necessities so that I wouldn’t infect anyone else.

So keep tuned in to this channel for the next few days and be staggered at the scientific analysis of trotters cough.

If the posts suddenly stop, I will probably be dead, so don’t bother to leave comments.
