jepuskar once bubbled... You ever get sick and had to skip out on diving and get more bummed about missing diving then feeling like crap? Thats me today!!
I had a back ache earlier this season that lasted one whole month before I finally felt OK to enter the water. Since the dive season here only lasts a few months, you can immagine all the fun I missed.
The only consolation that I have is that none of my trips have so far been cancelled by illness.... and during trips, only twice did I have to forfeit a dive, once because I stressed myself out trying to babysit an incompentent buddy, the other because of seasickness.
I guess you have to look at the scope of things. If I have to miss a dive because of illness, I much prefer it be a local one (maximum loss $80) than an exotic one (no $$$ limit here)
