achy yesterday…but I’d rather feel the pain…

Woke up feeling achy yesterday…so what’s with that?…another ‘new’ symptom…started with a sore throat a week and a half ago, that morphed into congestion and a cough, and as that diminished, bit of a light cough, and my back was just feeling achy yesterday…bit head-achy when I cough…the weird thing is that through all this, I have a normal temperature: 98.1F mid-day…go figure…

So not sure what’s really going on…hoping that it’s my body giving it a final surge to finish off the final bastion of germs that have appeared elusive to deal with…and if there’s a resurgence from the Dark Side, I guess I’ll break down and find a doctor to tell me that I have a cold.

I don’t like to take anything…like never…like no Tylenol or cold medicine, or…well anything…I always prefer to feel the pain and not mask it…I figure that pain and/or feeling lousy is there for a reason…sort of back to that listening to your body thing…can’t really listen to it if you’ve got it on mute 🙂

Having said that if I’m _really_ sick, I’m not anti-medicine, so will take my ‘medicine’ diligently…

The good news out of it, is that I’ve had a very productive work week, with the follow-up tasks from my convention, so lots of good stuff going on…although poorly timed coughing spells during online conferences have been a little inelegant…

Feeling better this morning…’morning cough’ but appears more clearing than persistent…I’m thinking a short yoga session today to get things moving a bit, and _maybe_ a short spin around town on the mountain bike…it’s supposed to be 74F today…not ready to declare victory yet, but the trend is positive 🙂
