Today’s post is going to be a short one. For the second time in two weeks, I’ve fallen sick. My head hurts, my throat aches and all I want to do is sleep. It’s not a lot of fun – though I’m sure that’s a rather obvious statement.
Although being sick is physically terrible, I also think it’s come on at a really inconvenient time. I mean, I get that there’s no good time to be under the weather – but so close to Easter? That’s just brutal.
I’ve been spending the last couple of days resting up as much as I can, which means that I haven’t gotten much done at all. Blog posts are going up later and later – and updating social media? Forget it! I can’t even remember the last time I posted anything.
I think what I dislike most about being sick – apart from the obvious – is how it forces you to let go of your daily routine. I honestly quite like having a day-to-day schedule, as it keeps me organised and on top of things. Being sick, however, means I can’t do this. My body just physically can’t keep up with the workload I’ve given myself.
This means I have to take the time to rest up and get better, naturally, but it also means that my daily routine goes out the window. Once I get better, I find it hard to get back into the swing of things.
Despite my complaints, I know there’s not really a whole lot I can do about it. I can’t keep up with the workload I manage while healthy. It’s just not realistic, and forcing myself to work so hard will only make me sicker. The only thing I can do now is rest up and hope I feel better soon.

- Did you ever get sick after you’d already been sick?
- When sick, do you try to pretend you’re not and work yourself too hard?
