I was awake for most of the night with a sore throat, headache and hot and cold flushes. Then, when I did eventually get some sleep, I woke up with swollen glands and aching all over. My skin hurt to touch and when I tried to get out of bed to get some painkillers I cried because of the pain. Truly grim.
I eventually made it downstairs to the painkillers and lemsip at about 11am and I've been in and out of sleep for most of the day. I am feeling a bit better now but I feel very spaced out and just not myself at all. I'm really not used to being ill and I hate taking time off work. I'm a terrible patient and have been getting frustrated all day as I've had no coordination and kept dropping things. Being ill when you live on your own truly sucks.
I had lots of posts planned for this week but, as usual, life has got in the way and I'm off to London tomorrow for the weekend, so there'll be nothing from me until early next week.
Yours, feeling very sorry for herself,
