I went in today and gee, was my throat and ear bad. Talking in the class does nothing for a sore throat where one's voice keeps breaking that;'s for sure.
But then I think - well, it is only half a day, so can I manage til linuch then come home and collapse - like today.
Been feeling ill on and off for weeks now. Infact have had so many bigs and infections since starting in January it is untrue.
I will no doubt go in. But I don't half ache!
DH has brought my something very strong and <<<eek>>> tasting, alleging it'll do my throat good. Ha! Not so sure on that. Reckon he just wanted it for himself, lol. Cup of tea would be preferrable I reckon.
Had had two ear infections since May, but not sure it is that.
It is my throat that hurts most right now. Ear is sore but not as bad as it was with the infections.
Lapsedrunner - why don't you do ill? I used tot hinkt hat til I had to have an awful lot of time off due to an ongoing medical complaint, followed by two ops and lenghy after op treatment. I realised then, esp when suffering from near depression, that work is not not a priority when compared to your health. Also - you get no thanks for keeping going in the end. Sometimes you have to put yourself first.
However, in this case I will most likely be in in the morning. I end to keep going til someone in authority tells me to go home, lol! I need a sick note from my mum; might make me feel better, lol.
hula - hope you're feeling better soon, I got DH some really good sore throat pastels, they're from behind the counter and look a bit like fizzy sweets but boy they're good, they contain a local anaesthic and antibiotic.
I tend to drag myself in - sometimes I feel better once I'm teaching; sometimes I get told to bugger off home - until I get there and try, it's really hard to predict which way I'll feel.
I've spent today dosed up on painkillers and felt dreadful when I got home but I've got a lighter day tomorrow, so I'll go in and see how it goes. Actually, other than the tickly throat and the sneezes and sniffles, I'm feeling a bit better at the mo.
can send DH round with them! they're boots own brand and are like a pressed powder rather than a boiled sweet, i used them as a teenager as i suffered really badly from sore throats and they really knock out the pain. Dh was really impressed with them when he had the flu in the summer. The only thing he wasn't impressed with is that they're rationed and they didn't quite last long enough.
