Finished antibiotics yesterday, still waiting for energy to return...

It's gorgeous out there, I need groceries and laundry done, tax return is overdue (don't owe this year but annoyed it's not finished yet...) and my ass is still glued to my chair.

Going to have wings and baked potato tonight. Have not been eating enough protein.

Water + vitamins. Need my brains back...

Antibiotics leave me drained of energy too, but it always comes back, here's hoping yours returns ASAP!

I had a bath!! Not dressed yet, but a bath nonetheless.

Now for lunch. Can go no further without food...

FF - Your body has been thru a tremendous amount of stress... I think you're just going to have to just let your body rebuild slowly.

Definitely get some more food in you... whatever you can tolerate.

Scrambled eggs are a great way to get protein and not too hard to eat.

Greek yogurt also.

Wishing you speedy recovery.

Oops. A nap intervened.... Now on to that fry up. Seems odd to want food again.

Thanks jrc, I will take things easy, may work short hours this week, need nap time!

Food tastes weird. Went to the store, stocked up on bananas, yogurt, ice cream, ginger ale.

Talked to my boss about taking more time off -- need to go and visit my GP and follow up on this. Coming back from the store was very wobbly, walking like my old mum. (I'm not 60 yet people!) And temperature shot up to 100 again. *sigh*

Beginning to think I may have some lingering effects from medication and all the fevers. It's as if my thermost has been knocked out of whack along with my inner ear. Will get a thorough check up asap.

All work cancelled until further notice.

Awww hope you feel better soon. You sound miserable. Do you have someone who can spoil you with chicken noodle soup and tuck you under the covers? Sending you well wishes!
