Feel completely crap and fed up.
Have come down with proper full on flu. Feel like death warmed up.
I have arranged for me, dh and do to go to visit my parents on Christmas Eve for the day. They live about 2 hrs away so not easy to pop there with a full time job and kid commitments.
My mother has dementia and dad doesn't cope well.
I invited them here on Christmas Day but they didn't want to travel and didn't want to travel to them as its not fair on ds as they live in small flat and nowhere to stay over.
My two selfish sisters won't show there faces over Christmas. One hasn't seen them at all for two months, not even a phone call.
Now I am bloody Ill and it looks like I can't go. Last thing I want to do is give my mother this and she ends up in hospital
Bloody unfair

If your mum has dementia, get everybody on-side and shove Xmas forward a week.

Wait until you are better, and then have your own Christmas.

As for you, plenty of rest, fruit and veg. Paracetamol if you get on with it.
