The pain is real, people. The pain is real real.
It begun Tuesday evening, around a midnight dreary where upon I began to get weak and weary. I nodded, nearly napping, when suddenly my head started tapping. It grew heavy, oh so heavy and when I awoke on Wednesday morning, covered in a layer of glowing sweat, I crawled into the shower as a test to see how I would fare performing normal everyday tasks. I did not fare well.
Spending most of Wednesday napping I managed to fit in a watching of the film L.A Confidential in addition to some episodes of TV show Breaking Bad. Thursday was pretty much a repeat of Wednesday accept with the addition of more coughing and chest pains – a result of the coughing.
Today (Friday) I feel much better but could not make it to work. I got into the shower to see how I would fare doing normal everyday tasks… and I still felt light headed and tired so returned to my bed.
I just pray that I am better for the weekend. In terms of writing, I feel frustrated because I have not had the energy to do any writing. Also I have not been able to keep up with social media, losing Twitter momentum because I did not keep up with the usual amount of tweets I usually make.
So this week has pretty much been a write off (pun intended!) and my man flu has been bloody awful. Any one going through what I am, I feel for you. I hope your white blood cells do their job and get you feeling 100% ASAP.
Hope you get better soon.
