I'm Back - Sort Of

I'm starting to feel a little better - at least to the point where I can read but not where I feel too much like writing yet.

I've been lucky - I've only ever had more than four days in a row away sick from work once before in my lifetime and that was five years ago when I had an operation on my sinuses. This thing has really knocked me rotten. Doctor said he didn't think it was the flu but was certainly some other viral thing. I started on the antibiotics yesterday so maybe that's why I feel on the way up today.

This is the first day since Sunday when I haven't woken with a headache and that feels great.

Thanks for all of you who checked in on me and I'm surfing slowly through everything I've missed in the last few days. Hopefully the urge to write will return soon.

Paisley - my doc says it isn't the flu but it has certainly been debilitating. The headache kept me from even visiting my favourite bloggers for a few days

Thanks Jeff

Plenty of water and the odd lemsip - do you have that in the States Mel?

Thankyou too Dallas :)

Ahhh, I'm glad to see you back Loz, good to hear you're on the mend! Take it easy, we don't recover quite as quickly as we did back in our youth! :-) Maybe this was just nature's way of saying that you needed to give yourself a little break, our bodies have a way of doing that. Hope you start feeling much better again soon!

What they said. About the plenty of fluids and the feeling better and all that. One step at a time.

I'm so glad you're on the road to recovery. Meleah is right, the key is to drink tons of water to help your body flush the illness out. Works like a charm.

Loz said...

Thankyou very much everyone. It is really nice to know I've been missed :)
