OK, I've officially got lurgy. For the last two days, my voice has been going, and yesterday I had no voice at all. All of yesterday I had one of those horrible headaches that no amount of painkillers could shift. Every time I coughed, it felt like my head was about to burst. Somehow, I still managed to give my presentation at St Mary's (though they did laugh at my lack of volume for a change!).
Last night, I was running a temperature and felt shivery, even under stacks of duvet. After a while, I felt all hot and horrible. It took about an hour and a half (and drugs) for the temperature to go down and for me to feel comfortable enough to sleep.
When I did get to sleep, I slept surprisingly well. I woke up briefly at about 7:45 this morning before going back to sleep.
Anyhow, I think I'd better stay at home in quarantine and not give it to anyone else. I was meant to meet up with a friend from work to revise exam stuff but I know she wouldn't thank me if I gave it to her just before the exam!
Poor Lauren doesn't realise I'm unwell and has been wanting her usual hugs from her mama. However, I suspect that she'll be fine, as I suspect she gave this bug to me in the first place!
Hope I get my voice back before the exam; can you believe the next two parts are both oral exams i.e. viva and clinical? Typical!!
