Well, two phonecalls that have made Conflux more interesting. mondyboy rang up to see how I was going and to voice concern over me going there. He was worried that I'd wipe myself out getting there and not enjoy/go to the actual con. I know that's a risk, but I've had two cons in my past where I ended up with 'flu or a virus and basically spent the weekend in bed. I still got to see friends I wouldn't have seen otherwise, and that made it worth it.
He also asked if I should be flying. What about the pressure change? Could it worsen the condition?
