I. Feel. Awful.
It is now official that I am the world's worst person at being ill. I don't think the Men and they're Flu have anything on me.
Went to work this morning feeling rubbish - lethargic, completely bunged up, dry mouth because I have to breathe through it constantly and a head full of pressure. Had a fairly unproductive day because a) it was my first day back for 2 weeks and I moved desks whilst I was away, so there was a mountain of email and unpacking to sort, and b) well, I just feel shit.
Went to meet a newly Bristol-based friend for a couple of drinks after work - couldn't taste the cocktails really at all. Went home. Couldn't taste dinner at all. Seriously - I had pesto - couldn't smell it in the jar, couldn't taste it apart from the slightest hint of salt. Had a small portion of rice-pudding and jam for dessert - again - apart from the barest hint of sweet - nothing. De nada. Rien.
Lay on my rug under a blanket by the heater feeling sorry for myself and reading for a bit whilst trying to get warm. I'm off to bed now, but don't expect I'll sleep much better than last night when I woke constantly, and then dreamt twice that I died. First in a car crash, and woke with an almighty jolt literally gasping for air, and then later dreaming I was drowning in thick, gloopy mud in a swamp (hey - can't breathe with the cold ... wonder how I got to dreams of drowning, huh?).
I very much suspect that tomorrow will be a rare sick day, unless something miraculous happens over night. On the upside - at least my razor-blade throat has gone for the minute.
