Day 482 – Good bits and bad bits

This crappy sickness continues to blight me. But maybe there’s some light at the end of the tunnel.

At three o’clock this morning (my internal clock is completely buggered), I was ready to take on the world. By seven, it felt like I had, and had lost – heavily. Now it’s half past ten and I’m in another good bit: less aching, less coughing – generally OK. But I have zero energy. I literally can’t walk more than a few metres.

Probably need to get a test, just so we know what we’re dealing with – it feels like influenza to me but somehow worse – but I have no idea how I could even get to the top of the stairs, let alone to a car and to a testing station.

Propping myself up with Lucozade and Myprodol. Apologies for any spelling errors. It’s all a bit blurry.

Day 480 – ill

I’m in the spare room.

Went to get our vaccines today and during a crappy 4½ hours, I got quite sick.

So yes, jab is the good bit.
Bad bit: Shaky, dizzy, shivering, cold, aching joints, no energy, cough, complete lack of temperature regulation. All of which developed during the day.

I know what this sounds like. Really hoping it’s not that.


I certainly wouldn’t have gone out if I had felt this way this morning.

I can smell.

See you tomorrow. Probably.

Thoughts and prayers, please.

One record gone

I’m flat out with food poisoning. I would blame that dodgy curry place on the Main Road, but I haven’t been back there since the last time they gave me food poisoning, last June.

It’s been a dull day in bed, with the fresh air and sunshine mocking me from outside.

No energy. None.

My 140-day “10,000 steps a day” record is over. I’ve done 26 today. But I was determined that my “a blog post each day” run was going to continue.

Fingers crossed for a speedy overnight recovery so that I can enjoy the rest of the long weekend.
