Down and out again

I was at the doctor's again this morning. Bothersome immune system! It started with feeling tired most of the weekend (and with me wondering why), an onslaught of a sore throat, and then throwing up after dinner yesterday.

The sore throat lingered, chills came on, nose alternated between being stuffed and runny. I couldn't quite get myself up this morning. Unfortunately, I wasn't going to call in sick without an MC, so I trudged to the clinic.

A friend noticed that I have been falling ill rather frequently, and remarked that it could be because I drive everywhere. He recommends that I spend time walking instead. He himself swopped daily taxi rides with regular train and walk routes, and found himself healthier. Looks like I might take his advice, or maybe up my weekly gym sessions from one to two or three. He feels that I'm not going to be able to make time for more gym though, but that it will be quite different if I leave the car at home, then I'll have no choice but to walk!

nuttyjas: I need to get on a healthy diet like you! Slept most of today.

cote-p: Good thing it is not too busy a week - although I did miss an important meeting today. I really almost went back to work in the PM for it, but the doc's medicine knocked me out!

ruth: There is! Seems like one strain of flu replaces the next! Shudder
