Ah poor me!

I am poorly. Big 'aaahs' please.

I woke up in the middle of the night feeling ropey and then spent the time between 5 am and lunchtime tripping back and for between bed and toilet. I haven't long got up, showered, and put on a clean nightie and I still feel doubtful. Poor me.

You know sometimes you think, 'I could do with a minor illness and spend a day in bed'? (Well, perhaps you don't but I do because I rarely have them.) But I've realised the problem with spending a day in bed when you're ill is that you don't feel well enough to enjoy it.

Oh, I am feeling sorry for myself.

Goodness, hopefully it is a 24 hour bug that will quickly depart. After all, you have traveling to do!

So sorry to read this Liz - hope you recover quickly but don't push yourself, please.

I never enjoy a day in bed; as you've discovered, real ill-health just never allows it. People tell me to 'rest' as though there is pleasure involved!

Hope you're feeling better. I had a similar thing on Fri. I took the afternoon off work and rested on the couch awhile, but then I felt better and really enjoyed the rest of the day. I only felt a tiny bit guilty about not going in. Maybe you should stay home tomorrow and take it easy just in case.

I can empathize! I awoke Saturday morning at 5:00 am having to pee and in pain. Never went back to sleep and managed to see the Dr. who told me I have a raging bladder infection. (sorry, gentlemen but you ladies KNOW how painful they are!). So now on massive antibiotics, but feeling better enough today to go to church and a nice walk on the beach in the afternoon. Sure hope you're back to par soon! Hugs!

Get well soon for that trip to Canada.
I read down the posts about dogs eating things, we had a lab that used to eat string from the sunday roast and it had to be pulled out at the other end.

Thank you all for your good wishes!

It's Monday morning now and I'm up but I'm not going to work. I still need to rest .... ah bless. But I will do my ironing.

I'm just glad it wasn't next week!

Leslie, hope your antibiotics work quickly!

Outhouse, that is vile!! My old dog used to eat socks and you didn't really want to be around when they came out the other end! Unfortunately I usually was and as it always seemed to happen when we were out walking, so were other people!

When one is ill one has a right to feel sorry for one’s self! I pray that today you are feeling better!
