Good Morning


Yes, I am still alive, but just about. The cold got me yesterday and after completeing my morning ritals of cleaning, shopping and cooking I collapsed into bed after lunch and was still there until my real bed time, although I managed to arise some time in the evening for an hour for a body inspection to see if I was still responding. I was coughing, sneezing and in between succumbing to a coma like sleep. I did not actually have temperature, at least I do not think so, but I was not feeling very comfortable.

I will see what I can do today. At the moment I feel again more or less human, but I have some things probably to catch up on, although WordPress is not, or should not be, a full time job, you know just for fun. This morning I managed to drag my weary body around my living spaces, my body not being so alive at the moment, and even eat breakfast.Yesterday was a day of fasting and since yesterday lunchtime I ate nothing. I am now showered, and ready to go, although am not exactly the life and spirit of the party.

In the meanwhile Mr. Swiss again returned to bed, as what I have, he had first, and still has it. After 48 years of marriage (on 4th February) we still share everything. The problem at the moment being that our conversations revolve only around colds and coughs and sneezes and feeling generally miserable. He is now relaxing with his Kindle on the settee and I am writing a blog in the kitchen – I suppose we all have our own methods. As long as my headache does not return, everything should be ok.

And now to catch up on a few comments, and perhaps a challenge or two. I also have a few photos to upload onto the computer.

I think yesterday was the first time in a couple of years that I did not manage a daily prompt. If the theme had been based on misery I would have had something to write, but my head said no and so did my body.

If the dreaded does not get me again this afternoon I might be back.

  1. And I am off to the doctor today because breathing has become quite a problem. That and feeling like I don’t have the strength to get out of bed, much less do something if I succeed. I think it’s the annual winter viral infection. Everyone’s got. It just hits we older folks a lot harder. Wouldn’t it be great to wake up one morning and feel energetic and ready to go? Do I even remember what that feels like? Oh well. At least the doctor is just 15 minutes away.

    • Funny thing about not being able to move. I always have problems standing up from a chair or leaving my bed in the morning, we all work out our own systems and I know mine is a lot to do with MS. But yesterday in my worst of moments, in the afternoon I could not get out of my bed. Mr. Swiss managed to lift me up and I had to use my cane for support eventually, which I do not usually need at home. Oh getting old is not fun. I do not even remember the good old days when I awoke and jumped out of bed – did they really exist? I hope your doctor has an answer to your problems. If he does, let me know.
