It's still not going well

July 18 - I remain off work.

I have no idea why. Nor does anyone else. My spirit is willing, and I am doing what I can from home for the team. But my flesh is not cooperating.

As yet tests do not say why I am so laid low that doing very much exhausts me.

I take comfort from the fact that first I have a team who can manage.

And secondly that I will be paid.

And third that I am told there is nothing life threatening so far found by anything.

But this is a new experience for me. I've never been laid low like this before and doing nothing - especially though no choice of my own - is something I simply do not do.

Except this time it seems I have no choice. And as holiday (thankfully in England) is coming up and my wife can take us all because I can't drive, but I'm told there is no reason why I should not go, I may well just have to accept my fate and take time off to recover from what is thought to be a virus - but no one knows what. 

So I'll see you when I'm back.

I am so sorry to hear that you have not recovered yet.  I hope that you recover your precious health soon.  Don't worry about us, we understand.

Also sorry . .

Many years ago, I had similar symptoms which kept me off work. Despite regular blood tests, all the GP could say after 4 weeks was that "it appeared to be some sort of virus"!

Eventually went back to work (largely through boredom) with no proper diagnosis.


Hoping you recover soon.

Try to enjoy your enforced break!

Take care of yourself.  I look forward to your return when you are ready.

If you have no choice...

Make the most of it!

Are there any books you never got around to reading, films you wished you'd watched, new recipes you wanted to try, etc. If the weather is good enough go sit and enjoy the garden or a park...

Hope you recover soon!

You can get something called post viral syndrome. Basically a posh way of saying that you've been ill, you're knackered and you need time to recover.

Plenty of sleep, good food, and an absence of stress should see you right in a bit.
