I feel like shit..............still...............hope to be tip top soon


Morning all, damn I am stuffed up in the head and my nose is still running like it is trying to escape my face. The last two nights saw me in bed before 7.30pm as I just couldn't be bothered to be awake any longer. Have to say I have had two nights of terrible sleep many times I would wake up unable to breathe through my nose and since I use a cpap machine I need to be able to breathe through my nose.

Of course I was unable to just stay home and do nothing yesterday, instead I went and helped mum with he monthly shopping but when I got home from doing that I did nothing for the rest of the day.

Today I still feel like shit but don't have much to do I am taking Leo to school soon and then I will have to go and pick up a dryer for Jessica, it is free from a guy on Freecycle he says it works and that is what she needs a working dryer so she doesn't have to bring her washing here for me to put in my dryer.

I hope I feel a bit better tomorrow when I have to go out and do my weekly shopping. Tim has said that I am always sick but I am not always sick and even when I am unwell it doesn't stop me from doing what I need to do. Even if I feel terrible tomorrow I will still get up and go shopping because it has to be done.

When you are feeling like shit due to a cold or the flu, do you take to your bed for a few days while you recover or do you just solider on because you have to and taking to your bed is just not an option.

I think if I was able to go to bed for a few days I would recover a little faster but because I just solider on and do what mum has to do every day, the cold/flu drags on for what feels like ages.

Like you, I have always soldiered on. And I never thought that once I got the clap there would be a problem id=f my nose is stuffy. :-( I hope you are better and better each hour!

When my children were growing up, I soldiered on. Now that I'm on my own, I can take more time to rest.

Love,
Janie

Moms always soldier on but shouldn't. You'd definitely get better sooner with rest and fluids. Sorry you're feeling under the weather. I hope you can get some rest after shopping!

xo,

I don't know how you do it... or why they make you...

Living alone, I can take it easy and only do what is absolutely necessary. But when you have kids to tend to--you soldier on no matter what. At least certainly I had to because I was the only one there to take care of my son. I think people usually just do what they have to do. If you have a lot to do--well then you have a lot to do feeling miserable--LOL! :)

Today I am still feeling like shit and having trouble sleeping, would love to go back to bed for a while but have to go and pick Leo up from school so no going to bed for me

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah you would think that now my girls are all grown and have their own homes I would be able to rest more but not going to happen

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I was able to spend most of yesterday in bed but of course today being Friday haven't been able to rest and have to go out again to pick Leo up from school in an hours time

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I do it because I have to

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah despite how sick I am feeling I will still go and get Leo and I will still have him tomorrow night while his mum goes out with her sister

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Thanks Tim I am taking it as easy as I can

Moms never seem to get the rest they need when they're sick. I hope you feel better soon.

How can I not comment on a post that contains the word "shit"? I hope your shittiness goes away very soon. Otherwise, that would just be shitty.

Feel better!!
