It Was A Little Late, But…

It may be over three weeks now since Christmas Day, but in a way my Christmas Day happened today.  I barely got out of bed on Christmas Day, the virus had got me big time and really did take me of my feet for a number of days.  In fact the virus is still going fairly strong, it still here, dragging me down a little, drawing me into coughing fits and making my throat and eyes still pretty sore.

It does seem to ease a little, then all of a sudden it comes back a little stronger for a few days.  I had a prescription review with the Nurse this week, I told her I was still suffering with this virus, which she then informed me could last another three or four weeks, well that was good news!

But this morning I finally manage to get some of the money owed to me by the Architects from before Christmas, so I was able to get my two kids the Christmas presents I really wanted to get them, but couldn’t afford.  I spent the afternoon setting them up with both of them and they are both extremely happy.

Just being able to do that has lifted me, with this virus rumbling on I’ve not been able to get into the routine I wanted to at new year.  It hasn’t stopped me from working, but it does mean that when I get home I am absolutely shattered, I eat and then pretty much sleep.

I have some work to do for the Architect’s, but I haven’t got around to doing it yet, as I say when I get home I am so tired and generally my eyes are so sore that I can’t really face staring into a laptop screen for a few hours, but I’ll have to get to it pretty soon.

Over the last week I have felt a little distant from things and people, maybe it’s the virus, maybe not, but I must say over this week there has been an improvement.  My daily posts at the moment are formed by a series of linked poems, which tell a story as such, this current series which started Monday evening and will end tomorrow evening is based on my feelings when I was falling into depression back in November 2013, those feelings of unfeeling and emptiness and calling out to the Father to help me through.  Although I am sure that even though they are based on past recollections, there is also a little of how I feel now wrapped up in them too.

It has been a little better over this week though, it was a nice break at the beginning of the week, my work sent me on a three day First Aid at Work course, it was nice to get away, do something different with a group of people I didn’t know, but became friends with over the course of the three days.  Also the return to Connect Groups on Wednesday evening has definitely helped too.  I guess to top things off getting some money in and being able to treat me kids to what I had really wanted to do at Christmas.

Hopefully things will continue to improve over the next few weeks, especially this virus and then hopefully I can get my plans for this year back up and running (or walking I should say).
