Jane called the out-of-hours doctors’ service and we waited for a callback. It appears there are a number of bugs about at the moment, all with colic style symptoms. I was told to take paracetomol, drink plenty of fluids and rest. I had a terrible night, waking every 2 or 3 hours with severe pains. It's subsided now but I feel shattered.
I called work to say I wouldn't be in today. I'm unlikely to go in tomorrow either unless, by some miracle, I feel better by teatime tonight.
I don't do ill - the occasional cold maybe, but that's normally it. I've only felt this bad once since leaving school.
Wanders off, looking for sympathy (as I'm told men do).
