Dying Highriser

Melodrama as usual. I am dying. I had my work provided flu injection today and my arm is hurting. Such pain. I need some youthinasia. Work is not only a pain in the arse but now a pain in the arm too. I took the cotton wool pad and bandage off and I am so annoyed that I cannot even find the site of the horrendous wound.

Worse, yesterday I had a very dull headache. Today a tickle in my throat. I fear the prevention arrived after the disease.

I am sure I am almost il morte. Bugger you women and your painful child birthing. Me with a sore arm and a pending cold is much much worse. Plenty of rest is good. I shall go to bed, and hopefully awake tomorrow, but who knows.

  1. Coincidentally, I received my injection yesterday as well. I felt a little light headed for a couple of hours afterwards and was worried I might faint whilst escorting patients to the wards. Thankfully that feeling passed by lunchtime. I completely forgot about the bandage until this morning.

  4. I hope you woke up feeling much better today. I hate injections. They are enough to make me feel icky on their own.

  5. Pump the Vity C big time - 6000mg on the first day. Haven't had a cold/ flu for years.

    As someone who pushed out an 11lb 3oz babe naturally, you got no idea about pain, buster!

  6. Our flu injections are on the 28th of this month. Bastard doc had better have black jelly beans on hand this year, or there will be consequences and repurcussions.

    Nothing wrong with a little prick Jayne. Big ones can hurt.

    Really don't worry me LiD.

    Vitamin C eh. Jury is still out on that one. 11lb, ok, that is big!

    Spoilt with black jelly beans Hawkeye.

    Yep Jo, I am as sooky as any straight bloke.

    Don't know what you mean Jo and Brian. My spelling is not great.

    No Lad, but I did get a lollipop.

  15. Injections? Ouch. I'm scared of syringes. That's why I started a blog (well...not exactly).

  16. I just read your first post Reuben. I don't see the connection. Or is that only the newest blog?

  17. I didn't think that the flu injection hurt at all! But you know what they say... a man with a cold...

    / On a more personal note, I wanted to apologise for not having commented more often recently. I've been so snowed under, but I always drop by to procastinate. You are still my numero uno blogger
