Okay, admittedly a very odd choice of topic, but one I am going to tackle anyway.
I’ve been aware that for quite some time, there’s been some sort of stomach flu bug… or agent that’s been doing the rounds in our town. Usually I sort of accidentally found out about it from friends and people I know - that they’ve had it, or someone else complained about it that same week, or the week before - whilst i’m complaining about my miserable state.
Now that in itself wouldn’t really bother me, we live in a smallish town and people being people, tend to spread the joy around. Then about a year or so ago a friend of mine moved to the city. Now ever since then, she’s been complaining about the regularity (and severity) of the problem. It literally seems to have like a 3 - 5 week frequency to it. Which got me wondering (and please all the conspiracy buffs enjoy yourself - just leave out the puns) if this is just here, or if it’s being experienced elsewhere around the world. (I know the stomach bug etc. been around for ages and it’s a world wide thing, but I’m wondering if anyone has been noticing an increase in it?)
