I am very much the guy who soldiers on alone when Ill, in fact it is very rare I stop if I am. Normally I continue as best I can and then wrap up and try and sleep whatever is ailing me off. I am not really a sickly person, I get a few colds due to working with the public but nothing major. About six years ago I had a chest infection which knocked me about for a week or so and it was one of the rare occasions I went up to my boss and admitted defeat. That was the early stages and by the Sunday I was pretty much bed ridden and suffering severe chest pains and call to hospital was required for an X-Rays, which identified a chest infection and a course of antibiotics. Though after four days sick I decided to venture back to work as it was easing a bit. Also I cannot sit still for that long, woe be tied if I ever break my leg.
