I am not Wonder Woman…

I am not Wonder Woman. And I am not Super Woman.

I am not Wonder Woman

Okay, that’s an obvious statement, but that hasn’t stopped me acting like I was! Especially this year where I seemed to believe I was invincible. This year I have worked full-time, started writing again, started my blog, started blogging for another site, commenced volunteer work for 2 agencies, completed a 6 month leadership program in which we created a book, mentored and been mentored, travelled to the UK for a wedding, commenced looking for a new job, and visited Singapore, all whilst maintaining a house, relationships with my man, his kids, my dog, my family, my old friends, and my new friends, and my sanity. My health on the other hand…well.

I developed a niggling cough about 6 weeks ago, after a bought of gastro. No sore throat, no drippy nose, no fever. Just a cough and fatigue. The cough lingered for 4 weeks, taking on many variations. Dry. Tickl-y. Mucous-y. On the weekend before Christmas I sounded like a pack a day smoker. And then BAM! I woke up the next morning to glands larger than golf balls, and razor blades in my throat. That was when I realised I had better drag my ass to the doctor.

So, what’s the verdict?

It’s a ‘virus’. Yes, It’s always a ‘virus’. At least I was prescribed antibiotics. Now, I don’t generally condone the use of antibiotics, but I think my body needs all the help it can get at the moment.

And what have I learnt?

I think I need to remind myself I am actually human – regularly. Unfortunately, my body has had to do it for me this time round…

  1. Great post. You are in the company of many “Wonder Women”. We just need to remember to stop and take a deep breath once in a while. To recharge, relax and to get healthy; sadly the last person we usually take care of is ourselves.

    P.S. Found your blog from the Ultimate Blog Challenge Facebook page.

    • Thanks Vicki!
      Yes there are so many of us out there aren’t there!
      I think taking it one day at a time is best. So yesterday I did relax, and today, I slept in : ) Baby steps!
