So I am going back to work this evening after a long 3 day weekend. This was an unexpected three day weekend as I was unwell and took a sick leave on Friday. I’ve been nursing a bad cold, cough and phlegm infection since last Monday night. This started after I drank a lot of water on ice on Sunday night and then started getting the sniffles on Monday. At work they had cranked up the ac and it was very cold and by 10pm I had a bad cold.
Tuesday was the same and Wednesday it was a holiday on account of being Eid. Thursday was ok for the most part but I reached home only by 6 am and couldn’t get to sleep until 7 am and the power kept going off and coming back on and lots of construction work in the area next to me kept me awake for the most part. By 1pm I realized that not only was I really tired and ill I needed sleep. So I took a day off and went to sleep. Late in the evening I watched a movie then relaxed at my laptop desk and then watched another movie before I slept again.
Saturday I spent mostly in bed watching some movies and a few tv episodes. Yesterday I felt much better and I am taking a cough syrup that helps with my phlegm which is slowly dying down. I didn’t go out although I was planning to on Sunday but I just didn’t feel up to it and my Achilles tendon was flaring up again. So back to work I go.
