Feeling Quite Unwell

When you feel unwell, it can be hard to remember what it feels like to feel normal. Or is that just me? As your nose blocks and then runs, and then blocks and runs some more, you long for the day to come when, finally, you are able to breathe without sounding like Darth Vader's understudy. It can be hard to remember what it feels like to not hurt when you cough or sneeze. Or for your joints not to ache.

I've been feeling quite unwell since Tuesday and, as the week has progressed, so has the strength of my illness. I feel hot one minute and cold the next. My head aches. My body aches. My nose is red raw from blowing and my throat is terribly scratchy.

I've tried going for a bath and going to bed early most nights. It hasn't helped. I've been taking as many cold and flu capsules as possible but they don't really help either. I long to feel well again!

Yesterday I started to feel nauseous. I kept thinking I was going to be sick and then I wasn't. I could easily have stayed in bed, snuggled under my duvet, dozing on and off but I couldn't. I had things to do, places to be and reports to write.

Sometimes being unwell and feeling completely run down is your body's way of telling you to slow down and just relax. I have to admit, the last few weeks I've been feeling pretty stressed with college work, presentations and exams. I can't wait for it to all be over in a few weeks!
