I had swine flu and it was strawberry floating awful. I got it while in Spain and it's the only time in my life where I thought I was going to die. I lived on my own at the time and I remember just lying in bed shivering to the point I was shaking and my chest felt like someone was standing on it. Worst thing was I couldn't go anywhere to get treated and had to have bog standard medicine posted through the letterbox by my parents.

Nope. My father had Swine Flu and was really bad. Think he was more at risk or death with it as he had serious heart conditions.

I had swine flu when that went round, a load of us who'd been at uni together all met up one weekend, and we all spent the next week feeling like gooseberry fool.

Had the most bizarre and vivid fever dreams while I was ill with it, so at least I got that experience, but it was horrible otherwise.

No I've got a good immune system and eat healthy.

It's no surprise who gets these things usually.

I had swine flu, I genuinely thought I was going to die. At one point I was so out of it I was forcing myself to stay awake because I was afraid to go to sleep. I thought if I did fall asleep then I wouldn’t wake up again.

I've not had anything, or known anyone who has thankfully.

I'm sure that'll change soon though.

Worst I had was a nasty Flu about 12 years ago (2007). strawberry floated me over for a good week or so and genuinely felt like I was dying.

Best part was when the fever broke and I woke up feeling amazing (by comparison). :lol:

Lost something like 20 Ibs and was hospitalised when I had pneumonia last year, that's the worst of this type of virus I've had though. Gonna be RIP'ing it up if I get the coronavirus.

I have a terrible diet and I have never caught SARS/Swine Flu/Coronavirus.

Your theory is shite.

The worst thing I ever had was scarlet fever as a child. Felt like someone had poured acid down my ear canals.

I have, but my diet of chips, burger and fried Mars Bars is protecting me.

Not had anything really bad yet, unless you count norovirus which was horrific but only lasted a couple of days.

Had the boring old regular flu a couple of years ago and had a couple of days of lying in bed staring at the ceiling as it was the only thing that stopped the head spinning feeling.

I don't think I've ever even had normal flu. I've never been the type to 'upgrade' a cold to flu.
