I have my first headache in ages tonight – may have been caused by the bump on the head I gave myself today. Hopefully I’ll wake up tomorrow and it will be gone.
One of the good things about being sick – yeah, sometimes there can be good things – is that I have been getting some good sleep. I think more than anything the sleep is really helping me in the recovery of my health. So very thankful for the sleep and I will pay more attention to sleep once things return to normal also.
When one has so little to do at home because of illness, boredom can easily set in and I have to admit to having a little of that at the moment.
Recovering from sickness can be such a drag – the days are really dragging by at the moment. I guess it’s one day closer to being well again.
I guess being a serial offender of not going to the doctor’s when ill has its downside – you sometimes develop pneumonia. I currently have pneumonia and have been quite ill. I spent a small amount of time in hospital hooked up to a drip and I now am spending a lot of time at home doing very little in an effort to shake it.
Perhaps I’ll go see a doctor before getting pneumonia next time – worth a thought.
OK, so this is probably not the most exciting of topics to cover – cold sores. Yeah, I get cold sores. If I have a cold or the flu, I can almost be certain that I will have cold sores as well. They seem to come at exactly the same time I get sick. So at this moment I have cold sores again.
The last time I had the flu – which was only about 6 weeks ago – my entire bottom lip was covered in them. Quite a painful experience. On the positive side of things, this time they are on the top lip, for which my lower lip says thanks. I however, am still not impressed by them.
I have just one more week until I’m on annual leave again (for two weeks). I am so looking forward to it and will use the time as wisely as I can – especially to rest, ensure correct sleep patterns, etc. I am so tired at the moment and need to discipline myself to ensure I have adequate sleep. I must tell myself, ‘sleep is my friend and is not a waste of time.’
