re: Right Angle Falls

<t>I too have boofed that fall, totally by accident. I didn't fancy stopping to look over the edge in the eddy, so I did a good right hand sweep stroke as I came round the corner. I landed flat, and it hurt a little. No injury though, thank god! I did think that I would not do it that way again thou...

Weils Disease

<t>I suspected I had Weils, and told my doctor from my bed, from which I couldn't move because of the pain in my legs. I showed him the page in the BCU yearbook. He didn't believe me, and treated me for flu. I ended up three weeks in hospital, and another couple at home recovering.<br/> <br/> The le...

HPP

Well, I got Weils Disease there a few years ago, put me in hospital for three weeks, plus another couple off work recovering (though that was partly due to the incompetance of my GP).
