Pity me, I am sick.

Yes, I am sick, and deserving of your pity. :-( It started yesterday, I had what I thought were lots of allergy symptoms all day ... I took my meds, but it didn't help. Which I realized later, Sunday evening, was because it wasn't allergy at all, but a bout of flu. Oh, lucky me. :-( This morning I didn't feel too good, but I went to work as I do pretty much regardless ... but at around noon I felt so shitty that I ended up going home. Only the second time I've done that in the three and a half years that I've worked there. I went home and went straight to bed ... slept, or at least drowsed, for six hours + ... alternately feeling overheated and shivering with chills ... and woke up feeling worse than ever. Alas.

I've eaten hardly anything all day, but that's just as well since I'm pretty sure it'd just come back up again.

The good news is that I don't think it can be the swine flu. ;-)

Also, in the good news section, that they changed the route for my bus this weekend, which I didn't know about till this morning - I was upset at first, because I assumed the change must be for the worse, but get this, the new stop is across the street from our building. As opposed to a ten minute walk away. Yay.

If only I didn't feel so totally shitty, I might appreciate it properly. :-(

Anyway ... I'm sure I'll get better soon. If anyone feels neglected in the meantime, well, it's nothing personal. :-)

Now look at today's picture. Click to enlarge, if necessary. Is it fun, or is it creepy?

*I* feel sorry to you at least. I remember when I was sick not long ago and no one felt sorry for me because they didn't know how bad I felt, no fun.

Huff, stakkars deg :( Du får ha riktig god bedring!!

Som du selv sa, det er jo ikke svineinfluensa, så det er jo noe. Fattig trøst, kanskje, men.

Det bildet er... ekkelt. Stakkars fyr! Hvilket minner meg på, jeg kjøpte The Devil's Advocate på loppemarked - er du interessert? Den har bilde at han-du-vet på coveret og alt mulig ;))) Særlig bra er den dog ikke, det må sies.

Pass på deg selv så du blir frisk så fort som mulig!

As a nurse I only feel sorry for people at work.. and almost never feel sorry for people with the flu (most of the time it won't kill you ), but since we're friends and not living in the same house (boyfriends never get sympathy) I am allowing myself to feel a little bit sorry for you. And i'll give you my fathers recipe for getting well: "Of all the things that don't help (against the flu ), cognac is the best " Hug from me get well soon

Uff, da! Høres ikke bra ut! Håper det er noe som går fort over! Riktig god bedring! Klem...

DES said...

Umm, I don't get it. What's creepy about a banged-up Porsche?

Det er sååå slitsomt å være forkjøla... Håper du blir raskt bedre! Stor god bedring-klem fra C. og B. på Råholt :-)

Aw, thanks, guys. I appreciate it. :-) I do feel much better now ... I stayed home today but I'm sure I'll be well enough to go to work tomorrow. But yesterday I really felt like shit warmed over. No fun. :-(

Findabair: Det er boka du snakker om, ikke sant? Ellers takk, den har jeg alt. Den er virkelig hinsides dårlig. Jeg ble meget negativt overrasket over den boka, for filmen er jo skikkelig bra. Et mesterverk i forhold. Og det pleier jo snarere å være motsatt. Har du sett filmen? ;-) Forøvrig er jeg enig i at det er et ganske ekkelt bilde egentlig. Får litt sånn dyrehageassosiasjoner av det ...

Audi: Thanks, I guess. Your professional sympathy warms my heart. ;-)

DES: Actually, I thought you'd think it was very creepy with a banged-up Porsche belonging to a man who has $300 million in the bank ... ? ;-)

Leisha Camden said...

C.! Hei!! Første kommentaren din på bloggen min, så koselig. :-) Takk for klem. :-) Hils tilbake til B.!!

findabair said...

Boka jeg mener ja. Regnet med at du hadde den ;) men måtte jo spørre. Jeg ble også overrasket over hvor dårlig både plottet og språket var - huff. Tror forøvrig faktisk ikke at jeg har sett filmen :P

Leisha Camden said...

Du burde virkelig se filmen, den er slett ikke ueffen. Al Pacino som djevelen, det kan jo nesten ikke bli dårlig, eller hva? ;-) Men boka er virkelig en avsindig møkkabok. Jeg så filmen først og leste boka etterpå, og jeg kunne nesten ikke tro at de hadde klart å lage en så god film basert på en så bedriten bok. Heia Hollywood ... for en gangs skyld. :-)

Get well! Want to see you on Sunday!

Leisha Camden said...

I definitely plan to be there! :-)
