We were told to be careful not to over-exert ourselves.
I didn’t have to worry about taking it and not getting it and it was not as good as what we would normally take.
I remember feeling like, “You know what, I can do this.”
What I didn�t understand at the time is that you can take a few days of what you can get from the NHS, or from other countries, and you will be able to take it for the rest of your life.
I have to say, I felt like a complete idiot.
It took me a while to get used to this idea that you just take the pills, and it is OK.
I was doing my own thing, so I just took what I was getting.
I have to confess, I had a few sleepless nights, but I did not feel like a fool.
The flu is a terrible disease.
There is no question about that.
When you are in hospital, there is no place for you to take the pill.
I was told not to do it because it might kill you.
There are so many people dying in hospitals every year, and there are so few of us who know how to take medicine.
I would be really surprised if we didn’t find a way to find a pill.
We had to get up at 6am and go to work.
I had my own schedule.
For the rest, we did everything else.
We did our washing and cleaning.
We had our breakfast and lunch and went to sleep.
My friend was a nurse and she said, “If you can’t take it, what do you have?”
And I said, “Well, I just have to take some.
I don’t know how I can take it”.
I would have been fine if I had had the flu and it had been like the flu that day, but it was the flu of my life.
I am not saying I was lucky, but if you are having to take an overdose, and have to go to hospital, you need to do what you need for the time being, not how you are feeling.
If you take the flu, take the right medicines, take a couple of days off, take some vitamins and supplements.
People don�t realise how serious the flu is, because it is not really about the flu itself, it is about the virus that is making you sick.
It is very hard to get flu when you have the flu in your body.
In my hospital room, I was doing a lot of things.
I did my homework, I did what I normally do.
I went to the bathroom and washed my hands.
I took a tablet, and then I took another tablet, then I washed my face.
I checked my blood pressure and blood sugar, and I had to go home and change.
Once I went home, I realised I had overdosed, so after a few weeks I had some antibiotics, and some vitamins.
At the end of my first night in hospital I felt very tired and a bit depressed.
I woke up the next day and I was feeling better.
After that, I really started to feel like I could get up, and do other things.
It was good.
I could do a lot more.
So it was good that I got the flu again.
I wasn�t able to get to sleep, so my husband was sleeping on the sofa, and he woke up.
This was my first flu episode in 20 years.
It wasn�s like a nightmare, because I had just gone through it the day before.
I was having a bad flu, and the only thing I could think of was to sleep with my head down.
Now I know that this is not normal.
I really had to do everything I could to be able sit up.
I think my husband, when he got up to leave, he thought I had passed out, so he got me out of bed and he said, you are alright, but you are just tired.
A couple of weeks after I got my flu, I came home and my husband came in and he started to say that I was really ill, I couldn�t breathe, and so he asked if I wanted to go into the kitchen and cook dinner.
He said, I am going to have to do that now, because if I don�ts do it, I don��t think I will be alive.
And I thought, OK, I have had the last flu in 20 days.
On the day of the first flu, in April,
