Third day in bed. Sweating and shivering in equal part. BBC News 24 online as my entertainment and companion.
Christmas presents unfinished. Shopping incomplete. Cards unwritten. House undecorated. Feelings of guilt and impending IOUs for presents mean that tears often fall. Crying increases temperature, brings on coughing which hurts. previously conquered depression hovers nearby during illness, harder to fight when so tired.
Sore hands, sore arms, sore nose, sore throat, no voice, no strength, sore jaw, sore back, sore legs, sore eyes, feels endless.
15 minutes sitting up is my new limit before waves of exhaustion force me back.
Guilt because husband having to wait on me. worry because he’s supposed to be working tomorrow.
So so feeling guilty for everything left undone.
Time to sleep. This has taken an hour and a half to type.
