The reason I really hate getting a chest cold is that it turns into chronic bronchitis and usually stays with me for weeks. Right now, combined with residual jet-lag, it means that I can only sleep for two or three hours at a time before coughing myself awake for a while. Thank goodness I've been able to work from home all this week. Just walking out to the mailbox this afternoon left me feeling weak and dizzy. I hope to be on my feet sufficiently by Monday to be able to do things like go to the office and to BASFA.
