I’ve been ill for the last 2 days, feeling really yucky, which for me is time spent:
– Sleeping for lengthy periods I never sleep for unless I’m ill. Aka 6pm to 7am. Otherwise known as hibernation.
– Being more quiet than usual, which I notice makes the people around me really know something’s wrong. There has to be a pretty good reason to stop me from talking. A reason like imminent vomit is one.
– Forgetting what eating healthily means and following the crave train all the way to whatever my body tells me I need. Which is almost always salty and/ or sugary.
I wrote this haiku about being ill.
I have so much I must do,
But first i’ll just zzzz..
