An all-consuming condition

It has long been known that man flu is virtually incurable. Unbelievable, indescribable pain and a temperature of at least 40 degrees – with these symptoms, the patient needs consoling straight away.

There is not much you can do if someone close to you has man flu, but the following might help:

  1. Provide round-the-clock care
  2. Give encouragement and comfort
  3. Take every symptom, ache and pain very seriously
  4. Always reassure the patient that they will get better
  5. Keep saying “you poor, poor thing” to the patient in soothing tones
