I don’t like writing about negative stuff on my blog as I only like to write happy thoughts in my blog. However, this blasted cold that I picked up last week… it has ruined so much of my plans
It started last Wednesday when I woke up feeling very weak, drained, with a headache. I thought it was PMS so I took a sick day and rested at home. I thought I’d get better but I only got worse. My throat started to hurt and my nose was acting up. Thursday, I had a full blown cold, sneezing and feeling really, really sick. Friday the fever kicked in, making me to totally useless. Saturday the fever remained and I started coughing on Saturday night. Sunday I was coughing even more but the fever was slowly going away. Monday I had to go to the Doctor as I had already taken 3 sick days consecutively for work – you can’t take more than that without a Doctor’s letter.
At the Doctors’ they took a blood test – turns out it is a virus that’s causing it. I’ve been prescribed cough mixture and 5 days sick leave. So I’ve been at home, feeling really weird and out of sorts. The world is moving on without me and I’m just here, trying to get better. I am much better than I was last week but I just don’t have much energy for some reason and food doesn’t taste like food at all. Everything just tastes bland even though I know those dishes are normally not bland.
Being sick is horrible. Being sick for so many days is also horrible. The Bf convinced me to step out of the house yesterday, go for a walk and such. I had to anyway as I was running out of essentials like shower cream and such so I had to stock up. It was the right thing to do – get some fresh air and walk in -12 C to reacquaint myself with the weather again.
I’m still bummed out though. I had to miss my work Christmas Party which was last Friday, despite having bought a nice blouse for that dinner.
I guess the thing I’m most upset about is all my messed up plans. There were so many things I had wanted to do last weekend and all of them had to be shelved. I don’t like it when my plans go awry, I feel like I’m not in control then
Oh well, I hope I feel better by the end of this week. Would be nice to get back into the swing of things again.
So there, that’s why I’m a little quiet and have not been commenting on your blogs, etc 🙂
