I thought that too mate and it smashed me like a sledge hammer ..

It’s 50/50 if you get it mild or get smashed..

You don’t want the latter believe me ..

Yep had it for 2-3 weeks, first few days I could of honestly said I was dying. Literally couldn’t get out of bed and felt like I had been hit by a car

It’s hit my work place really hard. One going to hospital, one calling an ambulance. Starting off as Flu A but then turning into pneumonia, chest infections, bronchitis, just not going away. 20-30 blokes sick for weeks.

Yeah man I got a chest infection at the moment and thought I had pneumonia. Nasty nasty stuff man.

Honestly the first 4 days I actually thought I was going to die.

OK, I just don't see the issue. Get all the shots, (covid x 2 plus booster, and the annual flu)

If you catch anything after all that, you'll have mild symptoms at worst, unless you're very unhealthy, extremely unlucky or a complete sook.

You can practice safe sex and still be shot by the husband

Not always the case mate. My wife and youngest had influenza A a few years back despite having the flu shot, it's the sickest I've seen her in 22 years and she's very healthy and fit. Really wiped her out.
