I was showing symptoms of influenza on the 22nd of Dec, serious shit, not had Influenza since the mid naughties.
I had to work through crimby, but basically soldiered on. Lemsip's, night nurse, any pharmacology I could lay my hands on I took.
Two rest days after my rotation, a bottle of whisky each night, to sweat the bastard out of me. The single malt was abused.
The fever has since subsided, not quite systems go. What concerns me, I'm wondering if I may be contagious (like my posts on the forum 55) and should I consult a GP and get a sick note/letter and claim on my travel insurance?
The whole time I was ill, I still had my appetite. I'm currently taking a berroca a day and munch on a clove of garlic which has endeared me to my colleagues. I think I'm good to go, just don't want this manifesting again on the flight and being quarantined at an Airport etc.
Is it selfish of me to contemplate going? after all how many times have you had the sniffels after a flight?
