Literally as I walked to the tube station on Sunday after sauntering my way around the marathon I started to feel a cough taking hold, which exploded into a full on head cold and as the gift that keeps on giving has now added conjunctivitis, tonsillitis, a blocked ear and a cold sore to its list of attractive ailments.

Anyone else feeling sorry for themselves while soldiering on?

Moi. Stuffy nose and headache. Negative PCR. Doing as much as possible remotely so as not to share it 🙁

I had a corker last month. It lasted 3 weeks and was harsher than my usual winter cold.

I have been suffering for weeks, still got a bit of a cough. Antibiotics helped. Many bugs around here at the moment.

I keep expecting to feel better, and it doesn't help that if I go out for a walk and cough (in the open air and not close to anyone) it feels like I'm doing something illegal/taboo.

I had a really horrible one last month too. Lasted 2 weeks because it hung around on my chest.

I also had a horrible one about a month ago. Can't remember when I last had one. Used to have one a year when still in London, but since moving to a thinly populated area, I rarely have one.

Got something to say?
