infectious situation

biohazardAhhhhh... the curse of the closed ventilation system...

Having been "stuck" inside a building for the last two weeks with hundreds of other people all breathing and sneezing and leaving their germs all over the place, the dreaded curse of the temp has finally come home to roost... You spend enough time out of that kind of environment and your immune system kicks along nicely on it's own... then you go in for a prolonged period of time, and at some stage your immune system goes "Hang about... there's stuff here I'm not used to dealing with... there's all these other people's bugs and microbes and whatever... ummm... hang on"...

... and down it goes, into the toilet... figuratively speaking of course... and you get a little sick... fortunately, for me I don't get really sick very often, so it usually just ends up being mildly nagging and annoying and make me wish I was somewhere else...

Today, strangely, seeing as I've been out of that environment for the last couple of days, my chickens came home to roost, and I pretty much feel a little shitty. Not enough to stop me doing anything, I just end up feeling a little "glandular" and constricted in my throat... nothing major really, but if it doesn't get on it's merry way in the next day or so it's going to be annoying.

Once I get over this hiccup I'll be fine, my body will start making all the right antibodies and whatnot and I probably won't be sick again for the rest of my time there... and fortunately it's not going to be a long enough stay for me to get sick again once I leave because my body isn't in that environment anymore.

Or am I just weird and this doesn't happen to anyone but me?

Well, fingers crossed it's nothing that's going to get you too down. Get well Yaniboy. :) At least if you do get sick you'll have the six disc set of the West Wing to keep you company.

Get well soon! It's always shitty when you're ill at the weekend, but well enough to go in to work on the Monday afterwards. Airconditioning is evil - one person sneezes and the rest of the building catches their cold. But I'd rather have the odd cold than be in a nasty sweaty office! :P
