Ever have one of those days where you just feel absolutely awful? Like your whole body aches and the closest thing you can liken it to is being hit by a bus? That's how I have felt since yesterday. It hurts to look at lights, it hurts to move, it hurts to even think, if that's even possible. I feel exhausted all the time. In fact, it got so bad today that I had to go home early from work. I never do that. I hate having time off. I hate feeling like I've dropped the ball. Having worked from home and been a stay at home mum before you would think I would cherish time at home now I am working full time but no, I feel I am doing something wrong when I very rarely take the day off. I also find it incredibly hard to switch off. I had to force myself to go to bed and sleep for a few hours when I got in and in the end I still did packed lunches and washing up this afternoon. I know that if I don't rest properly and allow myself to get better then I will end up feeling just as bad when I am back in work, but somehow I can't quite let myself fully stop. I didn't even want to miss my boxing class tonight but I did and am currently curled up in bed watching Friends on repeat with tangerines to top up my Vitamin C.
Hopefully I will be feeling better soon as I am awful at being poorly!
