I have to apologise for not posting as much recently. It’s not because I’m being lazy or even because I have nothing to write about. In fact it’s the opposite I have loads of reviews to get on with.
The reason is that I’m just so bloody unwell. It started a few days before Christmas. Luckily I was fine for Christmas Day but it got worse and worse. Bad chesty barking cough, sore throat, tiredness, chills, shakes, aches etc. Normally a cold wouldn’t bother me but this is something else. I am gradually starting to feel ever so slightly better but I just have no damn energy, even writing a few words on a computer screen seems such a tiring task at the moment.
Despite my illness I still have to get up pre 7am and get kids ready, take them to school and now nursery, plus do the housework, dishes, make tea etc. I guess mothers are not allowed to be ill .
Yesterday I managed get doctors to be told it’s a virus and therefore all they can give me is a nasal spray and no antibiotics. I’m not medical qualified to understand the difference between a virus and infection, to me they are pretty much the same- in that they all make me feel like total crap and take forever to go away. The doctor didn’t say what type of virus of illness I have, Flu, plague – isn’t Ebola a virus too???
So onwards I go coughing my guts up, I have burst a vessel in my throat I cough so hard. The bloody taste was worrying me and a Google search bought up some worrying conditions -Pneumonia, TB, and a fair few others. Probably best not to google symptoms anymore.
Anyway I’m hoping I feel ok soon so I can get back to blogging and reviewing and hosting more competitions.
