During the last few weeks, I have been really unwell with the campylobacter virus. If you have had it, you know how miserable it can be!
It started at work which was awful, and a few hours later I was being sick in a bush while walking my dog. Another classy moment for me.
My boyfriend was away, rocking at download festival, so I felt really sorry for myself!
My best friend turned up with medication, food, drinks and even took my dog out for me. She’s a legend! One day, she was with me for hours even though she had ‘just popped in’. Turns out she stayed because I was so pale she was worried about me.
Love this woman!
My work buddies have also been checking in with me daily, sending me jokes, gossip and generally cheering me up!
Other friends have gone to great lengths to find dairy free biscuits (people with the virus are advised to avoid dairy) as well as delivering lots of lovely magazines!
I’ve never really been poorly so it raised my spirits knowing how many people care about me, and I’m extremely thankful.
I’m still on the mend (and really pale!) but would like to go back to work tomorrow to see how I feel!
