Sick? Who’s got time to get sick?

So I’m sitting in my office today wondering about when you go to the doctor with a cold thingymajig.

And do I have a cold or is it flu.

And knowing that, if I go to the doctor, I’m going to leave with a script for AB’s.

And you probably know by now how much I loathe AB’s.

Maybe it will just go away.

Which it probably would if I could spend the next 24 hours in bed.

Which I can’t.

And yet, here I am.

I mean, I’m not ready to fall down or anything.

But a nap right now would be friggin AWESOME.

Why is it that us Moms don’t allow ourselves to feel sick?  For me it’s the guilt of seeing Etienne run around by himself trying to juggle children, entertaining children, feeding children, reading to children, dressing children.  We are a team, I would be letting the side down.  Moms can’t ever be seen to be letting the side down, can we?

Can we?

Have I mentioned I would really like a nap roundabout now?

I think I shall go and have a little lie-down.

Over. And. Out.

PS: I take no resposibility for any spelling errors.

  1. Being sick for over 2 months now and having about another 2 to go, I know what you mean. It is not nice seeing our Husbands doing the things we are supposed to be doing. The guilt is aweful and I feel like the worst mom and wife ever… But not looking after ourselves is going to make the recovery period longer and thus the guilt last longer. So, go to doc, get better so that you can feel better.

    Hope you are okay soon! Hugs

  2. I’m also sitting at work presently, sick with a cold. Yes, I too wondered whether I should go to the doctor or not. Yet, I could do with a nap right about now.
    It’s not as much as I don’t allow myself to get sick as a mother. I tend to be very loyal towards my work and would rather come to work sick, than stay at home. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so loyal because I tend to impact myself negatively when I’m really sick that I need to stay at home.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    1. That’s what I did today: went to work sick instead of staying home. We are our own worst enemies.

  3. Oh I hope you are better way soon. And I have much less of an issue to take time off work for being sick than with getting in bed and let hubby do the kids, house etc.
