Stupid viruses

Posted by Oli on Thursday 15th March, 2007

There was me thinking I’d got thing under control after my weekend dip and I manage to get myself laid low with a virus.  Not a regular, all-singing, all-dancing kinda virus, mind, but a really pathetic, weedy one which is just enough to prevent me doing what I want to do without making me feel REALLY ill.

The last few days I’ve been struggling with a bit of low energy and this morning I woke up feeling very lethargic, but also with all sorts of aches and pains all over my body.  My lower back was hurting, and I felt like I’d pulled the muscles in my groin (which I think is pretty much impossible when you’re asleep).

Added to that, when I got up I had aches through my knee joints and around my shoulders and pains in my hands and fingers.  Chest-wise, I feel fine – no better or worse than usual, but I just can’t seem to do anything that involves moving without either wincing or nearly losing my balance.

After talking to a few people from the CF Trust message boards, it seems that it’s just a virus that’s going around, which should wear off in a few days with some decent rest, but it’s no less annoying for it.  The best news, really, is that it doesn’t seem to have done any harm to anyone’s chest, or caused infections or anything, which is a definite plus.

So it’s a few days in bed/on the sofa for me, which I’m going to find exceedingly annoy because – as you’ll have seen from my last post – I’ve got a whole load of things that I really want to be getting on with.

Ah well, the sensible, mature me will have to take charge and remind myself that having projects is all well and good but if I don’t keep myself well enough to enjoy them, what’s the point?

Send me get-well vibes!
