Have you caught the flu this year?

Have a flu injection every year.
But this year is obviously very different. My autoimmune system is shot because of all the Disease Modifying Therapies I’ve had. Coronavirus for me is indubitably a death sentence!
I direct/produce a live topical comedy show once a week in the heart of London’s West End. Indeed I’m writing this after a show!
In the UK things seems to be under control but I probably should withdraw from the world.
102 years ago my grandmother died of what became known as the ‘Spanish Flu’. A bird virus that killed far more than the First World War had.
My very own warning from history!

Just read your post and listening to update on the condition of your PM.
My hub and I live in NC in the US. At the end of Feb he broke his hip – doing well now but, obviously, we had a head start on the “staying home”. I’m lucky that we are old enough not to have to worry about work but, is hitting all in the US very hard.
I have been diagnosed with SPMS for the last 3 to 4 years and, suddenly, this week had a whole new issue. I’ve been blessed with comparably minor impact in my life. Got out of bed a few days ago and almost fell down. Thank goodness for my poster bed. Even a cane couldn’t give me stability. WHAT!!! This is a new thing. I don’t want a NEW thing thank you very much. Doc says I need an MRI – yeah, like that’s going to happen. Not going near that place right now and she agreed. I asked, if when that happens and there are new things going on am I back to RRMS??? Could be – the lady said. Crumb I’m 75 – I don’t handle change like I use to.
Anyway, John, staying inside really is the best – get yourself a mask and lots of sanitizer and be well.
