The children have had a day each off school this week due to getting a cold - in both cases a day of rest at home has been more than enough to get them recovered.  Tony seems untouched.

I've been ill since Tuesday night, no improvement in sight, and as of this morning I've lost my voice.  The children found that a lot funnier than I did.

One of my friends from work, who had a similar leukaemia to me several years earlier, told me that she still finds colds hit harder and take longer to recover from than before the cancer.  So maybe it's not surprising.  But so so tedious.  And I keep having to talk down the bit of my brain that panics when I get breathless climbing the stairs, because honestly brain it's much more likely that I'm breathless because I have a stinking cold than because the cancer has come back, and I wasn't breathless climbing the stairs before I caught this cold.

It's not flu and I'm not running a temperature, I'm just bunged up and stupid and fed up.

Stupid cold. I'm sorry you're feeling rotten. I hope you feel better soon.

Ugh, colds are awful and I'm sorry having one now comes with brain weasels. Feel better soon!

Srs illnss leaves a long shadow behind of paranoia, of that 'fuck, what if I'm getting Evil Foo' again. It sucks. It decreases with time, but takes a very long time to disappear completely. (Like 8 years out, it's not gone for me yet.) So solidarity from the trenches infested with brainweasels.

Also suffering a cold; and if it gets worse I will be bunged up and fed up tomorrow (though, like you, not necessarily stupid). I have been running a temperature today, though, after exertions.

There seems to be a particularly annoying cold doing the rounds at the moment. I do find 2 years on that I'm more likely to get stuff and to get it harder than other people around me.

But I don't get ill anything like as often or as badly as I did earlier in my survivorship. I hope that's vaguely encouraging.
