but rather the winter cough illness (not the vomiting kind so far). So much for having a few days off. Spent virtually all of it in bed, coughing extremely violently, bringing up all the mucus, aching, and generally feeling very sorry for myself.
Despite being generally much fitter recently than I was a year ago, mostly thanks to all the swimming I do these days, I have had a bad run of breathing problems. I am a serious asthmatic (using four different inhalers a day). This bug, unusually, does not (yet) seem to have impacted my chest as most illneses do. A small relief.
I plan to go back to work tomorrow. Fingers crossed that I am well enough. I do hate taking time off.
