I have been sick since the 28th of Dec. It started with a fever, then escalated into a very bad viral flu. I am still coughing like a TB patient which is exhausting.
The coughing is worse at night, sleep is the last thing on my mind when my lungs and chest are aching as I sit up in bed coughing. I cough to the point where I am hoping my lungs would jump out, sort themselves out and then jump back in.....
The meds make me dopey, sleepy and everything seems like a dream sequence in a movie. My head feels like its got cotton wool for brains, which is quite worrisome as I start my new job in 2 days.
Not a good start to a new job if I take on the personality of three of the seven dwarves, sleepy, dopey and grumpy.
I was doing the new year family thing at my place and I was feeling a bit better on Monday, enough for me to go get necessities with son. No 2 and clean the place to make it visitor ready. By the time New Years came around, I was back to having a fever and coughing. Lots of coughing.
I can't take the meds as they incapacitate me, which means a slower recovery but I have no choice. I still have the place to clean etc and do laundry before work on Monday. I can't afford another day like today where I was so doped out that I slept the whole bloody day!
So fingers crossed that I recover enough to make it to work meds free.
