Has anybody ever completely lost their appetite? I’ve had two pieces of toast in two days and I don’t feel any hunger at all. Not been on any gear either so wondering what’s up.

Possibly the virus.
I'm a greedy cunt but I went over a week without eating a proper meal because I couldn't taste anything and I just didn't feel like eating.
Silly question but can you taste/smell anything?

All the best to you and your pal spit. Big up yourself for looking out for him. That’s what good mates do.

Yeah maybe the heat. Can smell and taste not a problem. Although, I just broke up with my mrs so maybe it’s stress related? Anybody experienced that? (no soppy cunt)

It's probably a bit of both. My appetite is the first thing that goes if I'm stressed or down.

I didn’t get tested at the time as it was before the virus was officially here but 99% sure I had it.
I had nearly three days of feeling horrendous, quite out of it in general but the scary bit was not being able to breathe properly Sad Took me a week until I had any energy and a month before I felt up to going for a run again.

Of course I am old and fat so there was a good chance I’d have a bad time.

Sounds like a mix of the heat and stress then.
Can definitely stop you bothering with things but it will get better.

If you’ve paid for uk holiday accommodation and have tested positive for corona and have to set isolate at home can you claim back anywhere for the money you have spent ?

I think we just have colds but mrs got a test within 30 mins of applying so will find out. Don’t want to do the holiday let out of money. Maybe they can really let if turns out positive.

Travel insurance?

I get a policy with my bank which would cover this.

Yeah I got a hsbc premier which I think has this. Mrs result came back neg, waiting for mine but if had been positive wouldn’t have gone. Insurance is a bit hit and miss for pandemics though so who knows. It’s only a couple of G but would rather not have lost out. The travel companies are fucked though so wouldn’t have wanted to let them take the hit if insurance or CC would cover it. Going to be an interesting beak though. Not like normal.

Hsbc premier is great. Had to claim 3 times in the past on their travel insurance and never an issue. Pays out within a week or so.

Ticketmaster - went to book some tickets for the family - event is tomorrow at either 2pm or 5pm - went to checkout on the 5pm event and when processing payment it gave me a confirmation screen saying the booking couldn’t be processed. So went and booked the 2pm event no problems. Now turns out the 5pm booked as well - which is a joke as it never took me to an order complete page with tickets. Am I fucked or will I get the money back? I have a screenshot of the page saying it couldn’t complete - paid by CC.

My niece is getting married next year in Greece and my sister in her 50s needs something like a jumpsuit/dress that covers her legs size 16/18 that's suitable for 30-35C temperature. Budget £500.

Could any of you Gents ask your Mrs for any recs as to where she may buy online pls?
