Health problems
I am not well. I have been going to work, because I was in charge for the past three nights and they couldn't have coped without me, and because I really didn't think that I'd feel any better at home, but I've been in a lot of pain and I went to the doctor as soon as my last shift finished (I can't really go during my working days because it would mean missing out on precious sleep).

I had suspected a malaria flare-up, because I've been having acute shivering fits, but apparently not. The doctor believes that it is a clostridium infection. As part of the examination he gave my abdomen a good prodding and it hurts like hell. I can't walk properly because of the pain (I couldn't even before the examination, but it's worse now).

My usual fic output may well be adversely affected. It's not easy to write when doubled up with abdominal cramps and also I've been sleeping for eleven hours a day and feeling that I could sleep longer. So now I'm off work I might well sleep for even more of the day.

Nasty! You have my deep sympathy. Having had endometriosis for several years I can fully appreciate just how hard it is to continue to function (especially creatively - bye bye PhD thesis) when you have persistent abdominal pain. I hope you got some medication for this (although it will likely make you even sleepier). Feel better soon!

That sounds awful. I'd be surprised if your fic output wasn't affected - persisting with work for the last 3 days must have taken a great deal of determination, I hope your employers appreciate you.

I reckon sleep is the best thing you can do for yourself when you have any sort of infection. I hope your doctor works out the cause and comes up with some effective treatment and that you feel better soon.

Oh, I'm very sorry you're feeling so terrible. Get some good rest, and I hope you feel 100% again very soon.

Ouch!

You poor thing it sounds like you're suffering! I do hope that you recover soon and without anymore doctors prodding you stomach to the point of agony! Sounds horrid. If your body wants you to sleep then curl up and snooze and let it heal itself.

I do hope you are feeling better soon :)

Buddy, that sounds awful. Don't worry about your fic at moment, your readers understand your health is far more important. I just hope all of your resting up will have you feeling better really soon.

Taking care of yourself is the most important thing. The fic will be there when you are better.

Get well soon!
