I was working today, and on the whole it went well.
BUT, I travelled there by train, all fine, and had arranged to meet someone at the station (in Crewe) who said they would walk me to the office as it was only 5 minutes. BIG mistake.
This morning Crewe was in thick fog. The road we had to walk UP was a very busy dual carriageway with really bad car fumes. The best of it is it took over half an hour to do the 5 minute walk as it was actually 1.5 miles uphill. I had to stop twice to use my inhaler and ended up with a massive headache.
What annoys me most is that I tried to explain to this person, in advance, that walking could be a problem for me depending upon the conditions. She assured me it was an easy 5 minute walk on the flat. I think it actually worried her when she saw how breathless I became due to the fog and fumes.
Why do people not listen to us about this condition?
Rant over, I'm fine now and they will remember for the next time, I hope.
