Robin had it as well, and we both had breathing difficulties, which scared him more than me. I know what it's like not to be able to breathe because of my asthma, and i had that as a benchmark. He's never experienced it before in his life. Suddenly turning wheezy when you're sat down doing nothing at all is bizarre and, yeah, kinda scary. Other than that, it's just exhausting. I'm still getting over the exhaustion and am nowhere near back up to speed again, though I'm over the actual flu itself. I'm just trying to keep going at a pottering rate and not overdo things. Every day gets a little easier.
But, had it now, which is good. Annoyed at the timing - and i really felt that the information out there about what to do was just awful. Confusing and contradictory, it really wasn't helpful when trying to work out how to react to things. What's on the news was different to what I found when I was trying to figure out what to do when I realised that I'd come down with it. But, I guess that's par for the course *sigh*.
