Yuckity Yuck!

Hi Folks. Sorry for my absence from blogland the last few days. I've had a bad virus (swine flu?) since Friday and been really unwell. Started Friday afternoon with diarrhea, wild temperature fluctuations, aching all over and feeling pretty awful. Now I am exhausted and my nose is still running and lungs aching. I'm really hoping to be back to normal by the end of the week. I have missed my walking so much, missed just being out in the fresh air so much. Weird for an agoraphobic to say that huh?!

I haven't felt up to reading and commenting on blogs or answering email so you'll have to bear with me while I catch up. I've got a lot of reading to do!

Thank you to everyone who commented on the last post. I think there's a lot more to be said on that subject about how we eat and what our expectations about eating are.

In the meantime I'm just going to try and catch up with everyone!


  1. ((hug))

    feel better!

  2. Holding my breath while typing this comment so as not to contract dreaded illness during holiday season and anyway I just wanted to say that I hope you're feeling better soon and GASP... OH SH*T... NOW I'M BREATHING IN YOUR YUCKKY GERMS... GET ME OUTTA HERE RIGHT NOW...

  3. Hope your soon feeling up to par!! I hope isn't h1n1. Not fun!!

  4. Welcome back! I've missed you, and was getting worried about your absence!
    Lots of Hugs, stay warm & dry (if possible!) and look after yourself!

  5. Hope you're out and about and feeling MUCH better soon!

  6. BearFriend! I wondered what was up-- thought you may have decided to hibernate for the winter! LOL. I had that yucky flu last month and it took WEEKS for me to feel completely myself again. Give yourself plenty of love and we'll be here waiting on your full recovery! XOX

  7. Oh no, not the dreaded swine.

    I hope you feel better soon. Can I send you some chicken soup? Take care of yourself and you'll be back out walking in no time.

  8. I hope you don't have Swine Flu! I'm still not fully recovered from that, it keeps flaring up and up, every time I think it is gone. My doctor said it was because I never stayed in bed long enough to let it fully heal. I thought 1 1/2 weeks was enough. My energy is zero.

    I hope you feel better very soon.

    I've been so behind in blogging, still trying to catch up.

    Thinking of you!

  9. Hi BearFriend (I love that name) Hope you are recovering well. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog, very much appreciated.


    PS You have got me wanting to read Dickens again.

  10. well, my friend, look at all the love going out to you in cyber land... let me add mine to the mix and say - get better soon and all the best... there's nothing worse than being sick for christmas, drink plenty of fluids and rest, rest, rest :)

  11. Sorry to hear you've been so sick. Hope you get better very soon and can enjoy your walks again. :)

  12. Hope you are feeling better today and don't pressure yourself too much about "catching up"

    Take care!

  13. My kids had the swine flu and it was not fun! I hope that you are really feeling better by now. Take care of yourself first and foremost.

  14. Just checking in and wishing you well!!

  15. Same here--just checking in to see how you're feeling and hoping you're feeling much better.

    Take care

  16. Another one here just checking in to see how you are. I hope you're feeling better, Bearfriend. I hope too that the weather is not too bad and that you're able to get ouside and do some walking.

    Take care and best wishes.
