OK, so I am in one of those times that happens only once or twice a year when I feel good, am getting things done and my brain feels like it's working. I've caught up on tasks that seemed overwhelming earlier in the week. I've laughed on the phone with a friend. I've done some creative writing etc etc.
Have I found a miracle cure? I wish! No I have a cold - coughing, sneezing, nose running. Aside from these minor irritations and the need to start yet another box of tissues I feel 'normal'. This is the old me.
It happens every time I get a cold - the old, functioning me comes back to visit!
Is it the cold meds - not that I am taking much? Or is it something to do with the fact that my temp is now 37 or just over? A whole degree higher than I manage most days. This is not a 'fever' in the sense any medical person would recognise but clearly a raise in temp for me. Or does my thyroid just get its act together when the body is fighting something off?
Doubtless I shall be recovered in a few days and feeling awful again! Hey ho....
