I believe in magic

#364: You have been transformed into a mystical being who has the ability to do magic. Share your new abilities in detail. How will you use your new skills?

Ditto to yesterday’s prompt – damn illness! Although, since it’s a Netflix program I’ve been indulging in due to being incapacitated, I’d be a mermaid with similar powers to the H2O Maiko island characters.

Brainwave

#363: What’s the best idea you’ve ever had? Regale us with every detail of the idea — the idea itself, where it came to you, and the problem it solved.

Argh – this would have been a cracking prompt to answer but unfortunately, I’ve been unwell since 2:30am this morning (for the past 18 or so hours) and still do not see myself as being “on the mend”. Just hope I don’t have an A&E visit on the horizon…

You can’t escape

So today (or for what’s left of it), I will be cheating on my blogging prompt challenge. It’s been a hectic day and since getting home, I’ve felt really under the weather. The colleague who sits next to me at work (and who I annoyingly share a phone with) is disgusting ill with a lingering cold and instead of doing the decent thing by staying home, she decided that it would be a great idea to infect the entire office. I was doing a pretty good job avoiding it… using antibacterial hand gel as often as breathing, consuming a ridiculous amount of pineapple, vitamin c and pine nuts, and just generally staying away from anything she’d touched… Well, that was until my brother got a cold, too. So for the past few nights, I’ve been segregated to my room in a pointless attempt at trying to avoid this virus, but I think it’s finally got me. So brain functionality, at this moment of time, has well and truly hit rock bottom.

Hopefully I’ll be able to resume normal service tomorrow…

Take care

#162: When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

It depends what kind of illness I have in all honesty – if it’s a bad cold, I’ll just soldier on alone in my room but if it’s anything more serious and I physically can’t get up, I let/ask others take care of me… if anyone is around that is! Just to clarify as well, my definition of “letting others take care of me” is pretty much bringing meals/drink to my room as I never want to infect anyone else, so will always quarantine myself from the world. I do believe that a little bit of TLC when you’re ill really does make you better faster. I find if I’m ill and I try to get on as normal, the illness annoyingly lasts much longer. So, in my opinion, the less you do the better!
