Human again

Sorry for the extended absence. It turned out that I didn't have TSC's headcold, but a lovely case of gastric flu. The range of symptoms is impressive - from nausea to fever, diarrhoea, aches and pains, blocked sinus, headaches, coughing, dizziness and general misery... Fun.

At least it's not malaria. The doc did a blood test to check. I am such a baby with needles I was more scared of the jab than the possibility of malaria. At least the nurse was quick. She didn't even give me a chance to swoon ;-) And I tried a new doctor. My other one is lovely, but I feel like she just wants to put me on antibiotics everytime there's the slightest hint of a cold.

Today I feel a bit better. I can actually walk downstairs without holding the handrail and managed to sleep through the night with no rushing to the bathroom or sweating the sheets wet. Progress!

I am thoroughly bored of daytime TV though. What crap! Is it just me, or do all soap operas share one script-writer? I don't know the names of any of the characters, but the plots are pretty much identical.

At least I can think straight enough to do some work today. Sorting through emails... exciting stuff. I am more cheered by the thought that I can do some blogreading. Yay! Off to do that now.

Glad you blogging and feeling a bit better *hugs*

Glad to hear you're feeling better and I also hate it when docs just throw anti-biotics at every sniffle. I had a cold now during my pregnancy and didn't take a thing (cos I couldn't) and it cleared up quicker than ever! Just shows you.

Enjoy your blog reading!

Welcome back oh one of the near death experience. A little song to aid the recovery, perhaps?!

Thought so:

*When it's running down your legs like scrambled's diarroea....diarroea! When it's shooting from your bum like a bullet from a's...* and it goes on and on in that fashion :)

oh dear! i'm so sorry! sounds like you've really been through the wringer. glad to hear you're finally feeling better.
and yes, day time tv shows ALL use the same scriptwriter! ;-)

Your first paragraph got me all hot and horny.. is that weird?

Dash said...

welcome back, but I fear the real world may also be suffering from a bad case of the same script-writers.

THat will change when I am back home though...

Damaria: Thanks - it's good to be back!

Brazen: Makes two of us... I missed it.

Kitty: Exactly!

Henno: Charming. Wait... you're not my brother in disguise, are you? ;-)

Cybersass: Thanks for clearing that up. I knew it!

Slyde: Yes. It is very weird. Disturbing, in fact!

Dash: I look forward to reading all about it!
