Yes I know I was meant to post about schooling in walk next. I’ve started the draft but this one’s jumped the queue.
I have a cold.
A month or so ago I was terrified that if I caught a cold would become really serious as I was so unwell anyway. But here we are now and although it’s crappy and I need to be careful with myself I’d recovered so much before I caught the cold that it’s not much worse than usual for a cold so far.
It’s frustrating to have my recovery set back by this viral irritation but I feel quite positive somehow. I think I was fearful that any cold or virus would set me right back to where I was a few months ago, so it’s a real relief to find I’m still fairly functional and while bed is the best place for me I’m still capable of, for example, going upstairs without feeling like I need to sit down half way up. That’s a triumph.
To summarise: I feel pretty awful and I feel really rather good about it. 😀 No one ever said being human was simple!
