Jean in Newcastle Posted December 29, 2011 Share Posted December 29, 2011 So what do you do when you're not super sick but you just feel "ookie". (Dh, an RN, hates this description of my symptoms:D) Ds14 was sick yesterday. In the middle of our lunch out at a restaurant, he started shivering and was feverish. He slept most of the rest of the day and took it easy with computer games and now feels fine. I slept poorly last night and this morning I feel draggy, have a bit of a sore throat and feel just not quite right. I also feel really hot, even though the thermometer says that I don't have a fever. I'm used to powering through my chronic stuff. In the past, I've tried powering through this sort of stuff but then got really sick. I've taken Emergen-C. Do I have permission to ignore the housework etc. (which really needs attending to)? Should I try powering through but on a lower setting? (What I really want to do is to go to bed again with my book but it seems so irresponsible.)
