Physical illness, although the least of my problems, really brings me down. I have pneumonia and was told by my Doctor to take a good seven days rest. “Hang your boots up”, he said to me. Easier said than done,to someone with a head like me!! I need to be active and cannot lie down all day, or rest I mean. I can for awhile but I get bored quickly. My mind then starts to wander and I could end up anywhere, mentally that is.
I have my near 3 year old daughter for company, although she also has pneumonia!!
She is coping better than me though at the moment, its just a pity that she cannot reach that kettle. Grow up kid!!
I did not have a lot of energy today and the new meds played havoc on my stomach so I am feeling sorry for myself tonight. I am on my own now, everyone else in the house is gone to bed. I am just in the opening chapter of a book I have always wanted to write, not looking for a bestseller but something that may help my kids understand me and the illness I have. ” So”!!! I am hoping they will say that a lot when reading it.
Remember exercise , diet and me time will help improve your quality of life.
