Being sick


I have been ill since the week before Christmas. It’s coming close to 5 weeks of being ill. I may sound dramatic but honestly I have never been so ill in my 34 years of life as I have these past 5 weeks. It started with a cold. But I am so terrible with a cold. I can’t eat or sleep for days until it’s passed. I wish I could say I got better and then got something else but I haven’t had a break in 5 weeks, it’s just been one thing after another. 

So after the cold it was sickness, a cough, then I got flu, then a cold again, more coughing then sickness and now an ear infection. And I’m still snotty and coughing. 

I’m not on antibiotics so I’m hoping and praying that they start to work. 

All of this illness has been awful but I think the worst is how much drained me. I literally have zero energy. I go to bed dreading the next day and I wake up wishing it was nighttime again. I can have a full nights sleep but it feels like I’ve had no sleep at all. 

Actually the worst thing about it all is having 4 children to still look after. The teens you’d think would be helpful (daughter has a bit) and of course 4 year old and one year old do not understand. 

There is only one good thing to come out of all of this and that is that I’ve lost weight. Normally over Christmas I’d put weight on but I’ve not eaten properly and I’ve been sick. We still have a whole cupboard full of Christmas food, some of it has gone out of date now 🙁 

Fingers crossed this is the end for us now and I can get back to blogging, social media and life!

  2. I have been poorly for a week, so I don’t know how you have managed with being ill for 5 whole weeks. What an absolute nightmare for you. Hope you are on the mend now. Hugs x
