    Is this RehabRhino?

    He told me he was suffering from a UTI but it looks more serious than that.............

    Are you suffering from 'Recession Flu'?

    The credit crunch is already having an effect on our health with living in a downturn also being linked to stress, heart disease, cancer and early death.

    Recession Flu: our health can take a turn for the worse when the economy falters.


    Headache? Can't sleep? Stomach troubles or soaring blood pressure? Drinking too much, feeling anxious all the time or perhaps simply too drained to get out of bed? The chances are you are suffering from "recession flu", a spectrum disorder that covers all the symptoms brought on by living and working through the early days of the global downturn.
    Most symptoms are manageable, but living in uncertain economic times can have a damaging impact on our day-to-day health and wellbeing, and should be taken seriously. A succession of international studies links unemployment and financial stress to cardiovascular disease: a report from the Central Michigan University last year found that socio-economic environment plays a significant role in deaths from heart disease. It reinforces an earlier, highly influential 1997 study by Prof Harvey Brenner, of the University of North Texas Health Science Centre, which studied the relationship between heart disease mortality and economic changes, including unemployment, in West Germany from 1951-1989.

        Ha

        I'm telling you, I looked a lot worse than that!

        Bladder infection followed by chest infection means I ended up taking two weeks off sick, four days in bed, two courses of antibiotics and had to go back to my spinal unit for kidney and bladder ultrasound.

        Went back to work today.

        Being off ill did allow me to be lazy and grow a beard. Took me an hour to shave this morning!

            I like the beard when it's scruffy, but not too long. Just in case you're interested. I also prefer a healthy Rhino to a sick one, so take care of yoself!

              LOL@ Timaru. That's a great find.


              Rhino, sounds like you had a rough 2 weeks. Glad you're doing better.

                  You just wanted a reason to do your best Adi impression!

                  Glad you are feeling much better sport.

                    You should have kept it . Everyone knows you'll never be taken seriously as a writer until you grow a thick beard ( and go mad ).

                        Thanks everyone. Definitely on the mend.

                        I quite miss the beard, I did imagine packing in the rat race for some Hemingwayesque existence pestering Foolish Old in the Keys.

                        It got mixed reviews from hot, intellectual and dashing to "you look like a dirty pirate or a tramp".

                            I would choose to take "dirty pirate" a compliment.

                              Paul, glad you're feeling better. You had a rough couple of weeks!

                              Attached is my beard at its zenith last Friday. I shaved on Sunday. Women need to make up their minds - it's either sexy or disgusting.

                              Sheesh.

                              Chris.
