Sick as a Dog

Sorry to report that I’m still suffering with the flu I didn’t mention I had.

I came down with the Australian version of the lurgy a couple of weeks ago and I’ve gone steadily downhill since. Strangely even before it arrived I knew it was on the way.

Over the many years of my life I’ve discovered that whenever I feel really well and suddenly get really ‘workish’ it is in fact a precursor to a total physical collapse! It’s happened too many times to be a coincidence and I’ve started taking notice of it.

Perhaps my body is doing a form of ‘nesting’ so that I feel I *can* collapse because the house is clean and tidy so I don’t feel so guilty about it… who knows. One thing tho is that now I am aware enough to make sure I have supplies of medicines and snack type foods around to make sure I don’t have to venture far until it all blows over and I recover.

This time, for some reason, the kids actually helped out a bit as well instead of leaving me to battle on with it. Also the wife has done sterling duty keeping everything working as it should in the house.

My head still hurts and the throat feels like someone is scouring it with sandpaper, but this is actually an improvement! At least my sinuses don’t feel as if they’re about to explode. 🙂

I’ll be back sooner or later of course… but right now please accept my apologies for the lack of updates etc. I’ll be back, but maybe not ‘in force’ for a few more days yet.

  1. Thanks. 🙂

    Seriously tho I really don’t feel at all well. Next year I think I’ll be first in line for a flu jab.

    I’m getting too old to feel like this… if you see what I mean.

    More details on the Family Forum if I feel ok later on… or tomorrow.

  2. Sorry to hear you’re not well mate. Drink lots of electrolyte drinks so you make sure you’re re-hydrated and replacing your lost salts.

    Only thing you can do is just sit (sleep) it out

    Hope you start to feel better soon….

  3. You really ought to have a flu jab, I have had one every year for the last 25 years. In that time I had 5 bouts of flu in about 7 weeks (that was about 10 years ago) and the odd cold here and there but I don’t even get a cold now (hope I haven’t spoken too soon 🙂 ) Hope you are better soon

  4. Me too – had one every year since I was 25/26 (get em free in Uni). Rarely get anything these days.

    Although I do live in a constant state of numbness so who’d know…??
