firstly, it’s crazy that it’s november! 😱 #what. secondly, i have man flu and i think i might be dying 🤧
of course, the only thing that i can write about in my current state is definitely man flu … it’s a legit thing everyone!
#tdil that a study in 2013 actually proved that man flu might be an actual thing! 😏 #toldya
whenever us dudes get even the hint of a cold, we’re always ridiculed with the ole “it’s only a bit of man flu!” line … like, i’ve been a dude for 26 years now and can 100% confirm it.
now, however, it seems that the kind folk at stanford university school of medicine 👨🏼⚕️ have found that the additional testosterone found in males might actually weaken the immune system when it comes to fighting influenza (flu’s actual name … not italian for ‘influencer’).
how did they figure this out? they studied the reaction of men and women to the flu vaccination. they found that the women in the test tended to have a stronger antibody response to the jab than the men – subsequently meaning that they were better protected 👍🏻
apparently, men with lower testosterone levels also had a stronger response and women with higher testosterone responded like the testosterone filled dudes 🙃
to be honest, i think i have a pretty low level of testosterone, so i probably shouldn’t moan 😂 … but let’s face it, if karl pilkington taught us anything, it’s that moaning makes the world go round 🙌🏻
i think you can probably just take this scientific study as yet more proof that the ladies are just superior to us fellas 🙈 … sorry guys, i’ll happily admit that one 😅
anyway, i’m going to return to my wallowing and self-pity 😷
peace out ✌🏻 #tdil
right, particularly uninspired writing this one 😅 so hopefully it’s still amusing! if you want some slightly more inspired postings, just go ->here<-
