It’s been nearly a month now since I was up all night being sick…the “flu-like virus” has mostly gone away but, as anyone who’s been watching my Facebook status will tell you, I still have the odd bad day. Tonight has been a particularly bad evening with me collapsing in bed and feeling like I’m right back at square one.
The doctor doesn’t seem surprised and a little bit of web research (dangerous as you could probably self-diagnose pretty much anything) shows that “post viral fatigue” is not uncommon and can last a long time.
But it’s very frustrating. I’ve been surprised at how much my life is defined by physical activity. I miss my cycling and I’m unable to do much that’s strenuous at all. I tried cycling yesterday, about 4 miles worth at a very slow pace. Perhaps that what’s killed me off this evening?
It’s stressing me out a bit as we’re buying the house…probably real soon now…and I won’t be up to much packing and cleaning and shifting big boxes around. Plus, I don’t know what the future holds – I guess I’ll slowly recover but if there is something more long-term wrong with me, is taking on a mortgage such a good thing?
Only time will tell I guess. In the meantime we press on with our plans in faith that God will stop us if we’re doing the wrong thing.
