A peek in my week ( + promised basement picture)February 27, 2015
I can tell you beforehand that this is not going to be a thrilling post of photos, since I am still ill. I suffer from what we call in the Netherlands "the American flu". It's called like that, because this type of mutated flu caused a pandemic in the USA first and then blew over to my country. Everyone around me is ill with this flu. Every year I have to get a flu vaccin since I am at special risk due to my asthma, but I didn't went to the doctor the last time to get it; I am of believe that the flu vaccin is kind of nonsense. It didn't matter anyway, because they hadn't counted on this flu and was not included in the vaccin and therefore, if at all, did not prevent people from getting the flu.
My lovely significant other was felled by the flu first, heavily, and I was quite surprised that I wasn't. I have a very low resistance, but in the second week of Ben being very ill, I started to feel flu symptoms coming up aswell; a headache I have never felt before! Muscles started to ache and my throat was sore, nauseau and diziness galore. And there you had it! I was felled by flu, too. And ofcourse this happens when I couldn't afford to be bedridden. I was trying with everything in me to get better as soon as possible, though it didn't work .. the flu has his own agenda.
I hate staying in bed all day, it makes my legs restless and it feels as if the walls are coming to me. That's why I hardly stay in bed when ill, but I really had to with this American flu. Still, as stubborn as I am, I tried to act as if I wasn't affected by the flu and invited guests over for the weekend, went shopping for our house, did some chores and such ... and sadly that made me even more ill. I really had to take a step back. Well, watching a lot of old movies, read books and draw a lot is what I did.
I am still not back on the mend; this flu is unbelievably dogged and not only with me, but Ben is also still feeling ill after 3 weeks, my grandmother is ill for 4 weeks and other people around me are also ill longer than a week. I am at 2,5 week. Sigh! I have so much to do so, please cross your fingers that I am feeling much better soon! This headache is killing me!
Anyway, I haven't made stellar photos, but I did make a couple. So let's see what my week looked like apart from the sight of my bed!
