i am Jack's infected lungs

i tend to feel really ripped off when i'm sick these days. this is the most time i've had off work for health reasons in ages - currently three days, possibly four or even five.

i'm pretty unimpressed with the coughing and the throwing up and the shortness of breath and the raw throat, not to mention the stupid antibiotics which will inevitably result in the witch doctor putting me on the stupid detox diet for 6 weeks when i see her again in a few weeks.

surely three years off due to illness means i have a lot of health in the wellness bank just sitting there waiting for me? i'd like to make a withdrawl please.

Sorry to hear that your sick. It sucks.

But if makes you feel better at least you aren't subjected to a shot in the ass anytime you go to the doctor's office.

Get well soon Span.

I would have some concerns about a 'wellness' bank - would not want it to become a commodity like the way the poor in india are forced into sell off their healthy organs..

Poor Span...hope you feel better soon.

thanks guys. i am quite a bit better this morning, so maybe i'll be able to go back to work on the morrow. doctor said no going to the gym for at least a week after i feel well enough for work though, which makes me grumpy.

and for the record Joe, i imagined that the Wellness Bank would have individualised accounts, non-transferable, where basically whenever you are sick you earn up healthy time for later on, to balance up your life so that you can't have the bad luck to be sick time after time after time. i imagine it's a common fantasy for those who have (or have had) ME. you need to do something to waste all that unproductive time.

hope you get well soon Span....it's quieter without you around (specially as Tristan's taken a "holiday").

five years off due to illness here. Wellness banking sounds brilliant. I shall live forever.

stupid as it sounds i used to like getting really sick and being bed-ridden, it would always impress on me how alive i am at other times
