I've used up all my sick days so I'm calling in dead

After my marathon sleep sesh yesterday I woke up for a wee while, had dinner, wrote some shit and got back into bed.  Come 'normal' bed time I was still knackered despite having slept most of the day. However, sleep was not something I got much of last night. 

Our neighbours decided to have the biggest argument ever. It sounded like two guys and a girl. One of the guys was crying and screamed so loud, I've never heard anything like it. We've lived here 3 yrs and never had any issues whatsoever. Then these douches moved in about 6 months ago. We usually hear them doing it as opposed to arguing and I'm sure there are too many of them in that flat as well. Not sure. Will keep our eyes open.  Haha! Well Sami will and I'll try to keep them open longer than half an hour! Lols.

So I woke up this morning, even more exhausted, in pain all over and a thumping head ache, like those ones where it hurts to open your eyes. I called in sick which makes me feel really guilty but I would be no use today.  I hate it, I felt like saying to my boss, 'Hi, sorry I've used up all my sick days this year so I'm calling in dead.'    I saw that quote on one of those ee cards once and I thought I'm defo using that one!

I couldn't have gone in today I'm half asleep writing this and typing is hard work, I keep forgetting how to spell stuff and my hands are really stiff. Sami took one look at me this morning and just said no, you've got to stay here today. So here I am, writing this from my bed again. 

I need to find the energy to change the duvet covers - I sweated like a beast last night. Sorry for the gory details but these night sweats are horrendous. Once the arguing stopped and I finally got to sleep, I woke up about 4 times, each time soaked. Even my hair was wet. So gross. I asked the doc about these night sweats and he just said its one of those lupus things. Lovely. Sami goes to hug me in the night and soon changes his mind! Lol poor bloke. We shouldn't laugh but sometimes you have to. 

As I've been in bed for the past few days I've obviously had a lot of time to look out the window and I thought this view last night was particularly lovely: 

Definitely got to appreciate the small things in life. 

Hopefully a nice rest today will allow me to go to work tomorrow.  I don't want to spend another day in bed. Its boring. Oh crapety crap, I am going to be sooo bored when I leave work in a few weeks....however it has to be done so I'll just have to get on with it and try and find a way to enjoy doing nothing for a bit.  

Thank god I enjoy writing, it gives me something to do! I didn't realise how much I love it until I started doing this blog. I love talking so I guess it makes sense to love writing too!

Its been an amazing form of therapy. I can just get all my feelings off my chest and go about my day without thinking about it all. I highly recommend it. 

Right, I'm going to attempt to get in the bath now then I'm going to change the bed sheets, take some tramadol and sleeeeeep. Mmmmm I love the feeling of fresh bed sheets. 

I hope you all have a great day. Xx


  1. I don't Know what you do for a living or where you live but we are living the same life! I am lying on my sweat soaked sheets while I write! yes, so gross! I definitely Want to get up and wash but not yet. I called in dead too except I didn't send my kids off to school either so I definitely feel like shit about that! You are so lucky to have a supportive partner because my husband Was so Crappy to me this morning about calling in...he actually brought up the fact that he's been doing everything lately.

  2. oh no Claudia - I feel for you! Some people find it hard to understand what it's like for us...is your husband always crappy about it? I hope not!!! xxx
