I've been really ill with flu since early last week. On Thursday morning my breathing problems were so bad that we ended up at the emergency out of hours surgery at the hospital. I haven't been able to keep food down and I have lost 7 lbs in weight since Tuesday evening. I seem to have lost a few days of my life somewhere.
I'm on the mend now. The antibiotics have kicked in and the blinding headache has eased. I still feel weak because my body doesn't really want to eat but I have stopped any more weight loss.
My school isn't especially nice to people who have time off for ill health. You probably know how it is... Nothing is said exactly - but there's a definite atmosphere that you've 'let the side down'; 'could have come really'; 'I had your bad cold and came in..' etc As a result I was planning on dragging myself in today.
Divine intervention has come in the form of a 'snow day'. My school is closed to all pupils and staff - it says so on the website! Never has a snow day been so welcome.....
Normal posts will resume once I've started doing something other than sleep! Stay warm and safe (or cool and safe - if you are reading this from the Southern Hemisphere). Jx
