The sick season

February 11, 2016

Is it just me or has this past fall and current winter been especially punishing as far as sickness goes? (This is not a rhetorical question – I really do want to hear your observations.)

I still have a scratchy throat after catching something back in December. It wasn’t too bad and it didn’t really  slow me down. The Little Miss and the Mr. have been brought down by something nasty this winter too. I have colleagues at work that were ill for several weeks last fall and one of my teammates from ringette finally got back to the game after being treated for pneumonia.

The media are of course all over it, with tabloids hyping up the current flu season complete with graphic maps.  There was a bit of news yesterday that the current flu season is quite bad and that it has spread quickly according to authorities. The last bad flu season was back in 2011-2012 according to THL (the National Institute for Health and Welfare) statistics.

I had the flu last winter, and I can tell ya – it was a pretty tough few days waiting for it to blow over.

If you’re currently battling the flu – tsemppiä – hopefully it’ll pass soon!
