off ill for a week

Last Saturday J was in bed all week with a flu-like lurgy, which I promptly came down with on Sunday. Not very pleasant at all. And once that had worn off (it was a quick 24hour period of pain) I suddenly had the most massive sinus infection since 2000. I was unable to stop sneezing either, so I was worried that it might be hayfever too. I've never had hayfever before though, so I was quite confused. I managed to make it into the office for my review on Wednesday --- since my manager was in town from Singapore I figured I owed him the effort :) --- but then went straight home. It is a very very long time since I've had this much time off due to illness, so I'm really happy to say that the antibiotics (generic version of Amoxil) are working just fine, and I've also been taking Claramax and that seems to be making a lot of difference as well. I've had persistent allergic rhinitis for as long as I can remember and this stuff is the first that seems to actually be making a difference. Yay for advances in medical science. Anyway, there was one other thing that has been a real bummer about this past week: no daily walking. Sure it's been nice to not wake up earlyish and have to commute, but I miss the fresh air and the exercise. Really, I do. I'm not a very sporty person and I find it difficult to go to a gym or exercise class, so the daily 3km walk is a really good thing. It also has quite a low impact on my joints, which I appreciate. So I'm looking forward to going back to work tomorrow, and walking walking walking as much as I can.
