Proper flu. Five days feeling like hell then two weeks feeling better until you try to do something and then feeling totally exhausted. I found the strongest painkillers I could get my hands on helped, with the occasional steamy bath and fresh sheets to crawl into (someone else to change the bed obviously.) Lots of hot drinks to keep fluid levels up.
Generic painkillers all the way. The rest is just advertising and packaging.
I have also stopped watching the news. I saw a photo the other day of somewhere in Aleppo consisting of a lot of stone arches. A before photo, and after a bomb had dropped through a central dome. I said to hubby, it looks like something out of one of those PS4 games, it didn't look real. Except you can't press Reset and start again.
