Weird day with a bit of a shock
For some time now my best mate and flat mate has been couging up blood and sweating, and a few other things... anyway, came back from hospital diagnosed with TB (Tuberculosis).
For those in other countries, TB is almost illiminated in Great Britain, and children are routinely immunised (including my flat mate) but there are still 7000 cases a year here. It has 99% successfull treatment rate and yet worldwide still claims 2 million lives.
Anyway, I went straight to the hospital for x-rays and... amazingly (as I seem to catch every cold and flu bug going around), I don't have it. At least I am showing no signs of it but have to get some further tests done twice over during the next 6 weeks while my flat mate is being treated.
So, some part of my system is working properly anyway. I'm glad my poor flat mate has finally found out what is wrong and can get it fixed.
