I'm so sorry that i've been so absent lately, and i thought i owed everyone an explanation!
It's not that i've lost interest in my blog or anything like that, but more because i've been sick. It started about 3 weeks ago when i thought i had a simple cold. I struggled my way through my weeks with barely time to deal with the fact that i wasn't very well. During my valentines meal i admitted to my boyfriend that i needed downtime so badly because i wasn't coping, to be fair i think he had already seen that!
Anyway, i still had things i had to do including going back toy boyfriends home town in oxfordshire for the weekend. I left him there for the week so he could spend more time with family and friends and drove home alone. Everything was fine until that evening when my annoying small cough turned into a giant hacking cough that turned up with such force that it was making me physically sick because i couldn't breathe in between coughing.
Usually i have to be talked into not going to work, despite the fact that i was on my own i just knew i wasn't well and got an emergency doctor appointment. Thanks to the wonders of the internet i'd pretty much already diagnosed myself before i got there and the doctor confirmed i was right, Bronchitis. Such fun.
The worse thing is that this is a waiting game, no medication will help the kind of Bronchitis i have - just an inhaler which i'm pretty sure does nothing!
So for the past week i've been coughing so much that my body feels like it's really been through some kind of trauma and aches in every kind of place possible-not to mention that today it feels as though i may have done something to one of my ribs from the force of constant coughing. I've been off work for a week now and whilst my boss has been pretty understanding up until now i just hope i can drag myself out of this by monday!
My honey is coming home tomorrow and i very much suspect he will look after me far better than i'm managing to do (i think i might have just about consumed a days calories in the past 5 days) being 'off' food whilst i can't smell anything or taste much hasn't helped.
Anyway, that's where i've been! It's probably going to take me a while to get back up to speed with life, but i just need to actually get better (and stop coughing) before that happens!
