I have made it into work today, despite not having slept, or eaten anything other than half a banana since Saturday. I have been laid up in bed with influenza. My stomach hurts, everything hurts except perhaps my eyelashes (I mean even my finger, and toe nails hurt), and no matter how I positioned myself in bed over the weekend, I was so unbearably uncomfortable I had no rest. I still have a temperature, in fact I didn’t wear a coat today despite it being 6 degrees Celsius, and I feel a little dizzy, too – probably from the lack of food. I feel so incredibly tired I just want to lay down, but I can’t. I have to work.
I hope it passes quickly.
