Five-Hundred Word Challenge 543: Another Thing About Being Ill

So I’ve been sitting here for the lat four days feeling sorry for myself but I need tog et back into action as all this doing nothing is really putting a dent in my ability to get anything done, so I may as well write about the last four days as that is probably the best place to start with the writing of anything that is as current as current can be, or at the very least as current as I feel like being.

I’ve been ill for the last four days (which includes this one).

Well, that was a pretty easy thing to write. Don’t know what else to say, really.

Been ill. Been lazy. Need to pull the finger out and get back to doing the things that I enjoy doing, for there is no time to be lazy at the moment. There is a lot that J need to do and I do not have any time to get it all done in.

Maybe I’ve been lazy as illness breeds laziness, or something.

Cold. I think I have a cold. I’m well over this at this point. I want to be back to being healthy and functioning, but in the grand scheme I have it pretty well. I’ll recover and get back to doing the things that I do. There are plenty of people out there who have it far worse than I do and I’m sure that they make the most out of the situation that they can. I’m just sitting here feeling sorry for myself.

All things considered, I have it pretty well.

Doesn’t change the fact that I’m going to whinge about  this as much as I can, although in al honesty I have not been whinging about this at all.

Well, actually a little bit, but I’ve mostly been stoic about it, I guess.

Not much point in going all “woe is me, how could this insufferable torment be inflicted upon me?” as that doesn’t change the fact that rest and time will allow me to get better.

Just gotta wait it out and try to stay healthy whilst I wait it out. Don’t know as to how long it will take before I’m back to being better, but it does need to be before tomorrow. Otherwise I may need to take another day off work and that’s something that I’d much rather avoid at this stage. I’d much rather go to work and do the work things that I need to do than spend another day at home.

It kind of feels like I’ve had the choice of staying at home taken away (in a sense) and that is probably what bothers me the most about being ill; that I have no choice but to stay home and rest.

Technically I can leave the house and do stuff, but if I want to get better, at this stage it’s better to stay at home.

Being ill: It’s not the most fun thing.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:29:60

Probably one of the better things that I’ve written, although that’s not really saying much.

Written at home.
