…I have suffered torture today at school and at home because
flu has taken over me.
At school I was coughing, losing my voice, freezing and sneezing everywhere.
In the playground I froze and felt horrible.
For lunch I had to eat potatoes, carrots and mince which made my illness no better.
When I came out of school this afternoon I felt like dying.
I took some medicine but it did me no good.
The best before date was 7 January 1986.
Mum came and drove me home.
She gave me a hot water battle and a blanket and put the fire on.
I began to feel a bit better…
