Need patience when I'm a patient

Late last week I felt a cold coming on. My chest was tight.
I refused to believe it though and put it down to anything from indigestion to the cold weather we're currently experiencing.

Wednesday I was supposed to go to work. I got up... got dressed... but didn't make it. Instead of going to work I went to the doctors. I thought he'd just give me the day off but instead he insisted I shouldn't be going anywhere for at least three days.


That's an eternity!

Actually it was pretty easy to do nothing on Wednesday as I really did feel terrible.. but as the week progressed and I've started to feel a little better, I just want to start doing things. I'm sick of being home. I'm sick of being stuck in this house. I hate feeling miserable! I hate that my throat hurts, that it's hard to breathe and my nose runs like a tap!
I hate it!
I'm not a patient!! I don't get sick!
Anyone that knows me knows that I say this over and over again so when a bug does dare to infect me, I become very indignant. How dare it!! Everyone else gets sick not me!!
Reality is bummer...

Sorry to hear you're sick. I'm like you... Hate being sick and am probably the worst at being a sickie. Hope you're better soon. :)

I hope you feel better soon Margot, Mat was in the USA for work a few weeks ago and he came home really sick - turns out a few of the people he was working with were quarantined for swine flu!
