I spent Monday and Tuesday home sick with the kind of exhaustion that comes with the flu, but no actual flu symptoms. Got a doctor's certificate for the two days off from a fill-in GP who said it sounds like a low-level viral infection, and went into work today. Big mistake. I arrived at the office ready to curl up on Ellie's bed next to her and not get up for a few hours.

Back to see my normal GP, who has confirmed that the blood tests they did yesterday show symptoms she'd expect to see with a virus and has given me a certificate for the rest of the week along with stern instructions not to go in and push myself, no matter how much better I feel. Because that's the thing: it's one of those bugs where you feel really run down when you're Doing Stuff or Being Thinky, but it isn't much of a problem if I'm, say, reading teh interwebz and listening to corny 90's music.

My doctor has also said that if I feel this way again just to give her a call and she'll write out a certificate rather than having me come in and exert myself further. This is the same GP who did an hour-long consultation with me when I first went to see her 'so she could get to know me and my history'. Admittedly, my medical history is a little more complex than most, but still. She totally rocks.

On a night when I'm feeling crappy for a couple of reasons, I definitely think picking up some Pratchett was a good idea. To wit:

a key to the understanding of all religion is that a god's idea of amusement is Snakes and Ladders
with greased rungs.

For a long time I thought nothing could top Rincewind, but I think I'm going to like the Witch books. *hugs Wyrd Sisters*
