Today was a washout.

4am: wake up
4-7.30am: doze, wake up, doze, wake up … repeat ad infinitum (and nauseum!)
7.30am: drink coffee
8am: walk (desperate) dogs
8.30am: finish coffee #2 and accompany Ally as she drops her kids off at nursery. Officially a Bad Day.
9.30am: collapse on sofa with a mug of tea and some toast
10am: get in the bath
10.30am: get back into bed
1pm: get dragged downstairs by Ally for lunch
2pm: Heather, my “care co-ordinator” (job title speaks for itself – an advocate rather than a counsellor) arrives. I’m still in a slump. Lose track of time. Next appointment in a week.

Later: go to doctor’s surgery, see nurse, see doctor, am put on antibiotics. Emergency doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning. Back to see the nurse on Thursday.

Then: more tea, walk dogs

Now: collapsed on sofa with laptop and a promise to feed the hounds at some point this evening

    Poor you. Antibiotics usually work quite quickly, but just take it easy 🙂

  2. So you’ve got the same ‘coughy coldy thing’ as Ally’s lot then? Like Jan said, antibiotics usually work fairly well, so hopefully you’ll have some more good days soon.

    The lergy on top of everything else! That’s not fair. Hope you feel better soon.

  4. Bum – would a {Hug} help? Rosie x

  5. Thanks, everyone!

    Here’s a fun game you can all join in with – try to pronounce my antibiotics:
