The Flu…

I don’t like being sick.
I’ve spent the last 24 hours in bed dealing with a bad cold or maybe it’s the flu?
I’m not too certain what virus I currently have, I’m sure it probably doesn’t really matter, although the test tells me its not covid.
This morning, the last thing I wanted to do was get out of bed and get dressed.
Headache, fever, runny nose, sore throat, coughing fits, muscle ache, generally lethargic and so forth.
I guess I’m just feeling sorry for myself.
I’ve gone through a box of tissues, the kind with extra balsam that are supposed to be gentle on your nose.
Paracetamol and ibuprofen have taken the edge off the fever and helped to deal with the symptoms I’m experiencing.
I take all the help I can get, to get healthy again.
Why does it take so long to get over the flu?
I’m an impatient patient!
In fact, I’m a terrible patient.
Monic has been in the bedroom a few times to see how I’m doing, one thing I know for sure, I’m a little bit grumpy!
Everything is more difficult when I’m ill.
Perhaps I should see this as an opportunity for a break from my busy schedule.
Although taking time out is a good thing, I’m not thrilled about staying in my bed.
I’ve written my journal.
Dealt with several emails.
Booked hotel rooms.
Read a book.
Watched a movie.
Got caught up on social media.
Drank lots of water.
Two hot cups of water with honey were actually quite nice.
Ultimately, my body is saying “Hey listen, it would be really great if you would just take a rest.”
Roll on the next 24 hours!
How do you deal with being sick? Any suggestions?
