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.
