in from the cold
It has been over two years since I have had a cold or flu. It was around New year 2005/ 2007 and it was my first ever experience of a proper achy flu. Needless to say it wasn't nice. Three months on I had my first CFS crash. I don't know if the events were related, but it is possible. However, I find it very strange that someone with such a poor immune system over the last few years - I have picked up infection after infection - has not had even a sniffle in that time. It was with a feeling of inevitability then, on Sunday when after my wife had had her fight with a bug, that I would get my turn. However, by Monday I thought the worst had passed. I was feeling pretty much OK again. Tuesday was fine, a little achy, but fine. Wednesday, I kept working away, but by the evening I was dead. This is where you find me now: an achy, painy, nausea-filled, choked-up feeling sorry for myself mess. Actually I'm starting to worry that this might lead to a full-circle situation. I don't even want to think about that!
