I have been sick for over two weeks now with not covid. I am one of the ones who have not had covid but from what I can tell what I have had must be like it. Cold/flu like symptoms, coughing, unable to sleep because cannot breathe (effecting asthma). Have had to use steroid tablets and use my inhaler so much it made my mouth hurt. No energy to do anything! So feeling for any of you that have had covid and it was nasty for you xx

Feel better soon!

I've had friends who have had something similar. Not covid according to PCRs but a very bad cold/flu. The doctors told them it was just a case of not being exposed to any cold/flu for a few years and so it hit them worse than normal.

Thanks - that sounds about right. Up until now I have not had a cold/flu since pre covid days - Thanks to transitioning from feb 2020 to working from home full time and not having to travel for work anymore. I feel bad as I am supposed to be going to a birthday celebration for my neighbour tonight but I can't. I walked the short distance between our two houses to give her a gift and I feel exhausted!
 

February

I think, therefore I am, I think ...
Sorry to hear that @Isee Hope you feel better soon. All these non covid ailments sound just as bad as covid.

I also still haven't had it, but had some horrible chest infection months ago which I felt had to have been it, but wasn't
All too strange!

Hope you get well soon. Yes, bad cold/flu going around and as @up_all_night said it's hitting us harder than normal because we weren't exposed to anything for a couple of years. Bring on summer and the great outdoors.

Re: warts

Hi Timmy, nail polish could be a good idea, but sticky stuff has a satisfying pull each time you replace it

ZOMG the nail polish worked! Was thinking yesterday it had been a few days since I last gave it a top up (or replacement) coat, and I touched it with my finger and couldn't feel it... checked in the mirror and it's gone. Amazing. 25c bottle of clear nail polish achieved what $70 worth of two dry ice zappings failed to do. BEEUUUWWW!

It's interesting to read that one of the four main flu strains (B/Yamagato) may have become extinct over the past two years, thanks to a combination of masking, improved hand sanitary measures and lockdowns around the world.

Just seems crazy that had the whole world collaborated, we could potentially have eliminated the flu and Covid all in one go. Imagine a scenario where all countries simultaneously went into a six week lockdown. Difficult politically, economically, and practically, but we kinda had our chance and blew it. NOw that borders are open and world travel is back, there's no chance of ever achieving it.
