Hey everyone, how are you?
I’ve fallen ill over the last twenty four hours. Which has really stopped me from doing things.
When I woke up yesterday, I just didn’t feel well. My throat was sore and dry and my head was hurting. I slept for a while in the morning. And when I woke up, I felt worse, I felt really warm and just generally unwell. Plus I was in pain as well, so, that didn’t help. It also meant that I couldn’t go to art. As they don’t like you coming in when unwell as you can spread it around. So, I left a message for them and they texted me back saying get well soon. I spent most of the day in bed either watching television, sleeping or reading. I couldn’t focus on anything where I had to concentrate. So research and writing were out of the question.
Today, I really hope that I am feeling be hurt. As I hate getting sick because I get bored at not being able to do anything. And I just generally feel useless and that then effects my mental health. No matter how I feel though, I have to sit in front of the computer and get some things ready for Monday. As I have some stuff planned that needs to be prepared. I will take breaks though throughout the day and make sure that I do rest as well. I just can’t completely rest like I did yesterday.
I am also having to keep an eye on my breathing. As I am asthmatic and any cold can lead into a chest infection. And that is something that I do not want. It has happened before. So, what I do is regularly check my peak flow and will use my inhalers when needed. If it gets worse, or at least doesn’t clear up by Monday then I will get the doctor to check things out as I have an appointment anyway.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
