How do you manage when your whole family is struck down with illness?
We’re normally lucky that neither myself or P get struck down at the same time.
The past week, everyone (except J who seems to always avoid illness) have been struck down.
It started on Tuesday when I got a terrible migraine. P said he would collect the older 2 from school so I took A and Z up to bed with me and we all slept for about 3hrs. I felt slightly better but the next day a head cold started.
As the week wore on, I started feeling worse and worse, until I was struck with an upset stomach on Saturday. Thankfully it wasn’t long lasting and now I’m left with a hacking cough and a slight dizzy feeling.
P came down with it all at the weekend, Z has developed a cough, A has a cough and cold and K has been in bed since Sunday evening. This afternoon she was sick after her nap.
I really hope this goes soon as I don’t like feeling ill. I feel lazy and don’t want to do anything, but the house is a wreck.
How do you cope when you’re ill in your house? Do you have someone to help so you can rest or do you fight on through?
