I don’t get sick very often, which I largely attribute to how much I fly, since I think it has strengthened my immune system. However, over the weekend I caught a cold, and I haven’t quite been able to shake it yet. On one hand I suspect it has to do with the new climate I’m adjusting to and general time of year, though I’m also starting to think it’s cyclical, since I was sick the exact same dates last year during my trip to the UAE on Etihad Airways (yeah, I’m a bit of a conspiracy theorist, I guess).
Anyway, the issue is that I’m supposed to fly to Asia tomorrow for the (long) weekend, and it’s turning into a real nail biter. I really don’t want to cancel since I’m traveling with a friend and supposed to meet a few people along the way, though at the same time there aren’t many things more miserable than flying while sick.
I’m definitely in the final stages of the cold. I started with a sore throat and that was gone by Sunday.
Monday and Tuesday looked like this:
And today looks more like this:
Uncertainty sucks, though I figure I’ll pack my bags and see how I feel tomorrow morning. What would you do if you were in the final stages of a cold? Stay home or go?
