Sick again...

I'm sick again and housebound for a few days, due to IBS, basically. You do not need to know specific details of late-night cleaning-up of walls and floor using mops and disinfectant and bleach... geesus...

Last nights' singer-songwriters night was a fizzer, with no-one showing up until right at the end, as I was about to pack everything up. Yeah, it's disappointing, but that's the way it goes.

I know I'm going to be one of those uneventful news stories where they find my remains like a month after I've died here at home alone. No-one is going to miss me if I don't appear at places anymore, and no-one is going to follow-up after me to check to see if I'm OK. No seriously, you wait and see. Thems' the breaks.

I'm not well, and I make no apologies for felling shitty because of that - no pun intended.
Peas be with ewe

  1. Being sick is no fun... hope you feel better soon!

  2. Do you know I'm never sure whether to send emails and check that people are OK or not. It's not that I don't care, because I do, it's more I don't like to intrude if someone is just having a quiet time or they just want to drop off the radar. Sorry to hear you are sick-not a pleasant thing to cope with by yourself. Hope it passes soon and you begin to feel better (hugs)

  3. Hugs, I hope you feel better soon!

  4. I hope the shittiness passes soon, reminds me of when my brother had gastro... he had clean washing on the line under the house but he failed to make the bathroom and the shit leaked through the floorboards onto the washing.

    I have to say I had similar thoughts when I was in Bundy that no one would find me if I died either by my hand or nature's... it is disheartening I know.

    On that note I am going up to Bundy today to spend a night alone at the house to grieve for the dream lost... my mum is coming up tomorrow. Just need time to feel how I want to feel... I think you will understand that one.

    Hugs my friend and hope you are feeling better soon.

  5. Oh dear, Mal- I didn't know you suffered IBS as well as Black Dog! What a bugga- far too unpleasant to have to deal with. I assume you have the best treatment you can get- I don't know of anything miraculous- just the old self-management with relaxation and diet stuff. It's disturbing to hear you talk about dying- you must KNOW we really want you to stick around and write and sing stuff for us, mate. I hope you can deal with your setbacks as I have been trying the last few days- just retire quietly for a few hours or a day, regather resources and vow to have another go another day...((hugs)). See those lovely boys and get an injection of boyish joy!

  6. As someone who has been sick recently it sucks big time...and like you my remains might go unnoticed for a few days - although my kids ring daily so maybe they's miss me...sob!!!
