    so my brother who works in HR told me that there is this gobshite at work: a real slacker, who phoned in with bronchitis and has been off all week, Had it before apparently !

    Also claims to have fallen down the stairs. He reckons it will get him only light duties when/if he returns to work....

    Don't you just hate those people ? and the union will probably defend him regardless

    Nasty shit man , had a horrible dose 3weeks ago . The mornings were the worst , as soon as i woke i'd be coughing so violently i was getting sick . Some disturbing dreams about paint a few nights in a row . Took honey and lemon drinks to ease the cough and got a course of antibiotics into me . What you should watch out for is the throat infection you have , if it continues to get worse get your ass to a doc or your local A&E dept . Dont wanna worry ya too much but in extreme cases people have died from it , no bull . All the best horse
    I have no signature at the moment

    For sore throad, there is a spray you can get from the chemist called Diflam I think. It tastes nasty but does kill the pain.

    Keep looking at the lovely pictures on this website and your antibiotics and you'll be better in no time. I know it's not much consolation now but there could be worse things wrong with you. At least it's curable.
