I've got man flu at the moment! My body aches, my mouths is dry and I am covered in sweat, got an awful headache and cough as well...
I think illness hits men harder because we are bigger than girls and we get the male version of the bug which is obviously bigger and stronger than the female version of the bug. Not in a sexist way just biologically. Not that I am a doctor this is just my own summation of the way it is.
Tracy has been ill also but it hasn't hit her so hard, she has still been able to cook tea, and carry on as normal through her coughing, she obviously had the mild version.
Everyone is out in the west end tonight, I am glad that I can stay in and just sweat it out. Alain and Tracy will get back at about 5am and then I have to take Alain to the airport for about 9am, he should be totally exhausted.
I've been taking Ibruprofen and paracetomol think I may have over done it, maybe I shouldn't have washed them down with a glass of wine.
Alongside this I am getting pins and needles in my pinky finger on my left hand, I am a bit worried about that.
I'll be sad tomorrow when Alain goes, it's been and will continue to be extremely tough for him, we love having him around. One thing we do know is that he has a loving family and church community around him to help him.
Please keep him in your prayers.
