  1. This is so me today! The lurgy has been lurking since before Christmas, never quite coming out, and I thought I’d got away with it but it struck with a vengeance last night and today I feel rubbish. But, like you, I’ve been stressing that I’m not ill enough to be off work, although the thought of sweating, coughing and heaving all over the office is horrible.

    Hope you feel better soon. xx

    • Sorry, missed this before! I hope you’re feeling a bit better now. It’s so rubbish isn’t it, especially when you think you’ve managed to avoid it 🙁 At least we got to enjoy Christmas though! xx

  3. I, actually, haven’t been sick in a few years. I’m really dreading the next time I become ill, though. Last time I was sick I wasn’t living at home, but I was on my university campus. The hardest things were, like, deciding if I could afford to miss class, and getting to and from the cafeteria. Hopefully illness doesn’t hit me for awhile 😉

    I hope you’re feeling a bit better! Drink lots of liquids and all that, haha!

    • Hehe, thanks for the advice. Thank you, just one day off made me feel SO much better. The liquids thing works, as well as lots of rest and whining! If you do get ill, email your lecturer and I’m sure they’ll send you notes if needed. But hopefulyl you won’t have to and will stay well xx

  4. This is so true. I always feel guilty taking time off for illness. Even when I was so ill that I was throwing up AND had diarrhea at the same time (TMI, sorry) I still felt like I should have gone in. Which is madness. How could I have? I wouldn’t have even made it out to my car without being sick! We need to stop beating ourselves up for taking time off to recover. If we don’t take the time how do our immune systems stand a chance?! Hope you’re feeling better now, lovely xx

    • Thank you, I feel SO much better now. That one day off really helped. You’re definitely right. Despite all of the stuff above, we need to look after ourselves first xx
