please feel free to sing the beegees song as you read

seriously tho, it is a tragedy. yesterday i was hit very suddenly by some horrid gastro thing and had to, quite literally, run home. i was violently ill and crawled into bed for hours waiting for trent to get home with medicines, drugs, lemonade, anything...

the pharmacist tells him theres a bit of it going around.

oh great.

people warned me when i finished the phd i would get sick, and i have been more sickly these last few months than in the last 5 years.

i dont like it, i dont do sick well.

but the real tragedy is that i am too weak and tired to knit! what the?!

what is the point of being forcibly confined to the lounge with the fire glowing and a cup of tea to sip, only to be unable to lift a little sock and four little wood needles?

like i said, tragedy.

i know you feel my pain :)

k xx

ugh. you have my sympathy :(

Michelle said...

Oh dear. Having gone through exactly the same thing very recently, can I suggest not putting anything in your mouth except for little sips of water, and gastrolyte? Gastrolyte is very good.

Rose Red said...

oh, yes, I sympathise entirely - if you are going to be confined to the loungeroom with some type of illness, you want it to be one where you can still knit!

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Too tired to knit? Good God. Gastro is one thing. The knitting thing is another entirely. Regain your strength soon! There's a long weekend to be made the most of!

Oh yuck. it is awful. Only 'good' thing is that gastro thingies are generally over pretty fast, though it might not feel like it at the time!

You poor thing, and it's even worse when you can't summon the strength to knit. Hope you are feeling better now. I think you are right about post phd sickness. When I was teaching I was hardly ever sick in school time- it was ALWAYS in the holidays!!!
