I have been fighting the flu and feeling rough for almost a week now after a hectic start to February.
At the beginning of the year, I had so many exciting plans, and now those plans have faded to the back of my mind as I’m back fighting the flu. I have been feeling ill almost every month lately which is also affecting my productivity.
I was forced to take a few days off blogging and filming last week, due to feeling really ill and having writer’s block.
Last Monday was half term week, and I went to the hairdresser’s to get my hair cut. By the time I had finished, it was lunchtime, and mum and I took the kids to the park.
On Tuesday morning my sister and the kids left, and I was busy trying to get some work done for a digital agency. I worked from 11.am until the following morning at 0.30 hours. On Wednesday morning I got up and started trying to catch up with a few blog posts and went to Penzance Bipolar Group in the afternoon. I was feeling a bit tired and tempted to give it a miss, but because I hadn’t been since last year, I decided to show my face.
On Thursday I attempted to write a post for my other blog, but this wasn’t happening because I felt sluggish and tired. I went with mum to the doctors in the afternoon and made the decision to turn off the computer and take a few days off.
On Friday morning, I woke up with an awful headache. It lasted the whole day. It was the worst and longest headache I’ve had in years. Throughout the entire weekend, I have had a severe headache, sore throat and glands and I’ve been feeling sleepy.
Mum and Dad are also fighting the dreaded flu virus, which isn’t good because Dad is a diabetic and mum only has one kidney which isn’t currently functioning properly.
Mum has to go back into hospital as the doctors need to check her kidney stent and make a decision on what they will do in the long term.
It’s now Tuesday, and I have been trying to write this blog post, but I keep falling asleep. I stayed up until 11 pm last night because my dog has had his teeth cleaned and eleven teeth were taken out, and he isn’t feeling himself at the moment.
On a positive note, I have finished reading The Google Checklist which I purchased off Amazon a couple of weeks ago for £4.99. At that price, you should give it a read.
Let’s hope that fighting the flu pays off and spring will bring us good health and lighter and warmer days.
