My self-care plans for the week went a little askew as I ended up being admitted to hospital yesterday. What I thought was a cold rapidly turned into what I thought was flu. But pain killers weren’t helping and I was in so much pain. So hubby took me down to the doctors surgery and they advised I go into hospital.
The hospital have been amazing, they quickly found me a cubicle and dimmed the lights as my eyes were so sensitive. I had a head CT, which was clear, and was transferred to the ward where I had a lumbar puncture (would quite happily never have that done again) which was also clear. I was given heavy duty pain relief and IV antibiotics.
Today I feel so much better and if my temperature settles will get to go home later today.
Yesterday I did manage some of my self-care goals:
- had a relaxing bath while listening to soothing music (Jack Johnson)
meal plan for today and tomorrow
- do some knitting
do some drawing or colouring
- watched two episodes of ‘flesh and bone’ (an Amazon exclusive series about the world of ballet)
