Being ill as a singleton
Ok, before anyone says it, I will say it for you – yes I need to man up. There you go. Now, I don’t want the comments to be filled with those words, or similar derivatives. I’m not good at being ill. My body systems are generally quite fragile and although I rarely get ill, when I do it tends to knock me for six…well usually actually nine or ten! I’m currently recovering from a bout of what I consider to be flu. Although this might be to other people just a cold, the temperature and the shivers leads me to think it was flu and as I laid shivering in my bed, feeling sorry for myself, I got a thinking about why it is sometimes hard to be a singleton and ill. (BTW – the image is not me! it was the only barely suitable one I could find.)
On a side note, I was actually wondering if there was a male equivalent of a spinster apparently the closest you can get is a bachelor which appears to be an overall nicer term than spinster. Hopefully these archaic words will eventually ceased to be used in language. Anyway – back to more important issues – me being ill. It probably doesn’t surprise you at all that I am single. Before getting ill the blog post that I was going to write was going to be the first of a series of posts called – “How Weird am I – ****” with the stars being replaced with words such as diet, routines, OCD etc. These will definitely support the fact why I am single. I live alone in a little flat. My family, as in mother and siblings, are all close by but I do live alone. They all know that when I am ill, it is wise to avoid me, since I am the worse patient ever! Despite this there are times when I am ill that I do wish there was someone around to look after me.
It might appear that I just need a nurse maid when I am ill and yes that would be nice – although don’t nag me too early because I would probably just growl. But what I would really value is that reassurance that I am not that bad and that, when the time is appropriate, that it is time to cast off that duvet and start to get back to normal. Hopefully there will come a time that, when I feel the first emerging symptoms of a cold/flu appearing I can press a button and that hologram will appear and say – “Please state the nature of the medical emergency”…my reply? I have flu…and everything will be better…
Are you the worse patient ever? or do you know someone who is worse than me? Are you single and can relate to being ill when you are alone? Do you have any tips or tricks to help me until the holographic doctors are created?
