So, who's sick then? Just seen Jay's post on FB (replying to Caff) and it looks like lots of peeps (including me) are having a real shit start to 2023.

I was wondering if mine was just down to the constant off and on'ing of the heating, but if everyone else is ill, maybe not!

Mine's down to my boss who insisted on coming to work, looking and sounding fecking awful, as she had a very poor sickness record with HR and then went off sick anyway. So she passed it to everybody. And I've passed it to my family too.

Yay.

Anyway, I'm starting to feel better now, but haven't been able to sleep the last few nights due to a constant hacking cough.So better, but absolutely shattered.

My dad's been seriously ill in hospital with it since 1am on boxing day. That was a long wait in a&e I can tell you. 11 hours before he got into a bed. The first 5 hours there were no doctors in a&e due to it being Xmas as sickness staffing problems.

The NHS crisis right now isn't due to staff sickness - it's due to there not being enough staff there in the first place. It was a skeleton crew before, now it's a vacant vessel

@Andy - Big hugs and fingers crossed that your Dad's on the mend.

@Jay - Sorry for the politics.

Yes, I didn't want to say that and go into politics but I think everyone knows.

He's doing much better since when he went in, but it's vicious.

@rockford - it's not just on me any more, that's what the down buttons are for.
Also, @ doesn't work. Should it? How would that work. I imagine that'd get annoying if it was useable to light up threads..
Also, spent three hours on the phone trying to get Patient Transport for a checkup tomorrow.
Not looking forward to seeing how bad my lovely Salford Royal is coping through all this.

@AndyH *hugs for all*

Nah, the @ is here just to highlight the message was more for the named person, It's perfect as it is Jay. We've always used it like that, haven't we - or replied directly to the post above?

No flu here, but my heart has been in Afib all day and hence have felt like crud and zero energy, not that I wasn't outside working in the dark at 6am anyway and am just now at 850 pm able to sit down and relax.

@Andy, hoping your Dad is home soon, Will keep him and @Rockford in our prayers, as well as your families. Get well soon, all of you.

Some of these discussions of illness seem to have leaked out of my monitor and manifested in the dreaded 'general winter illness' damn to all!!!
