Slow germs

It's been a while since I last posted anything about my health situation. Which is good, because I don't want to bore you all with daily updates on how I don't feel better..
Before Christmas I hoped to be able to partially go back to work after Christmas vacation. Well, forget that! I am so not better yet. I still need 12-14 hours of sleep a day and can't do without my daily nap(s). And with buying the house and planning the wedding on top of everything else I've had some difficulties falling asleep at nights. That's annoying, to be in bed, and know that your body is really tired but yet stay awake..

Today I made some decisions. I e-mailed some people and did some planning. I asked some questions to my guidance counselor and thesis person. I arranged a drummer, pianist and guitar player to play in my band at my practical music exam. I started to think that I can ask the committee if I can postpone this exam a month of so, because of my medical situation.

All in all: I physically don't feel any better yet, but my head feels a lot lighter than it did last night and the night before. I'm sure I'll be able to sleep much better tonight. I just need to give in to the mono (again or still?), and not start working on things that I know I'm not ready for yet. My doctor told me not to go back to work until I had had the feeling that I had just had a week off, with normal energy level. I'm not there yet... but then again, it's a little better than it was in November and December. So there is a little progress!

You never really get rid of mono ^^; Once you've had it, you've always got to watch out for a relapse. Regardless, I do hope you can rest and feel better :)

Seriously, listen to your doctor, or it'll develop into something like I have and you'll be stuck at home too ><

Helaas heb ik het verhaal van hierboven meer gehoord, dus geef er inderdaad maar aan toe ;) maar het niksen geeft snel een rotgevoel, ik weet er alles van.
Veel beterschap, nog steeds!

hi nic,
ik hoop voor je dat je je snel weer wat beter voelt. Ik heb het broertje van pfeiffer gehad, namelijk CMV en het duurt zoooo lang voor je er weer bovenop bent! Soms het idee dat het nog steeds niet over is.
Wat leuk van de kippetjes zeg! Ik wil ook heeeeeel graag kippies maar ik heb er geen plek voor en ze kunnen niet samen met de andere vogels helaas.

Well as said before you have to give in.... Don't feel bad about not working yet. You will in your own time...

Oh wat vervelend toch. Maar er is een positieve ontwikkeling te ontdekken. Het gaat toch steeds meer de goede kant op.

Balen zeg dat het zo lang duurt. Maar inderdaad, goed uitzieken is de enige optie, anders blijf je er uiteindelijk veel langer last van houden. Sterkte!

Geleidelijk aan gaat het de goede kant op. Je zou wel sneller willen maar het lijf bepaald anders.....

En leuk om die dingen die ik nog niet van je wist te lezen hihihihi

Goed weekend!
