It's just over week now and although it's managed to move more into the chest, I still feel like uuhhgg! Had a fever about three nights in a row, I sound like I'm underwater and do nothing but sniffle and hack all day, my chest and throat have that wonderful "broken glass...
americans say "I have the flu" but most english people I know say "I've got flu"
I think the english are correct, flu being short for influenza.... you wouldn't say "I've got THE influenza"
can you tell I'm delirious???
