Today i feel UGH!!
There is no other way to describe this although i am quite sure were i a man i should be suffering from some deadly disease and need three days constant nursing in bed to recover. I do not have a cold, no headache as such merely a very cloudy fuzzy not quite functioning niggle coupled with the general dizzying feeling that a truck ran over me in the night. Energy levels definitely flashing red, in need of a good charge!!
I am not good at being ill, i do not have time and get very impatient and frustrated at being below normal par and will fiercely resist giving in to it. Perhaps i do more harm than good since i have been told before that i only make it linger for longer, instead of giving in and allowing my body to get itself better.Boring!! But today i feel like a Duracell bunny fitted with cheap discount store batteries, my drum is not banging enthusiastically but has dwindled to a feeble sporadic thump and bunny ears are definitely on a less than perky droop. I think were i to roll down the conveyor belt this way i should surely find myself being firmly deposited into the rejects bin!!
Intention this morning was to hit the gym since i had a day off yesterday but after a less than energetic wriggle into gym clothes and half hearted stagger in search of coffee, this plan was abandoned as not such a good idea after all.The stagger required much effort since my initial impulse was to crawl and then slide down the stairs on my ample bottom!! With all the enthusiasm of a person being led to the guillotine i managed a steady plod in the direction of the supermarket, hauling back groceries with far less than my usual strength and energy that even the most upbeat music on my ipod could not improve.
No smiling from this panda today, this requires effort and energy and i have none to spare of either!!
Thankfully i am lucky for i am rarely ill but on the flip side on the few occasions i do fall foul to some stray roaming viral beastie i find i do so in most spectacular fashion. Personally i think i should rather have more, less debilitating illnesses, rather than receiving a whole years worth in one fell swoop. So i have decided to stay home and feel uncharacteristically sorry for myself (this is just an excuse to slob on the sofa and watch the olympics) and i shall commence my usual copious doses of vitamin C to ward off the worst of the effects.
I have to add at times i regret being single and this is one of them for the idea of being coddled is sometimes rather appealing. Not that i subscribe to the chicken soup and being fed grapes scenario but still having someone to take over the chores and dispense cuddles and sympathy would be rather an attractive prospect right now. Instead i shall force myself to clean up and then retire to the sofa with hot chocolate and the tv remote. Ah well it is saturday after all, time to recharge the bunny batteries, now where did i put the vitamin C???
