Illness Update

I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to be ill for this amount of time. I’m coming up to two months now and I can’t tell you how much I wish I just felt normal! I had an excellent time on holiday and was starting to feel much better and so it was time to come off my pain medication and BAM! Medication withdrawal kicks in. Apparently this is perfectly normal and can last for a week or two and consists of splitting headaches, nausea and vomiting and other pleasantries. After having such a lovely holiday and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel only to then have it cruelly snatched away is just exasperating. And I’m really hoping it is just withdrawal from my meds and not another illness on top of everything else.

It’s got to the point where I’ve become really teary and depressed because I literally can’t do anything. Yesterday I slept the day away with 15 hours sleep, the blog is so behind, I have so much to catch up on and I’ve only read one book so far this month. I’m so bored and fed up of not being able to do anything remotely fun or productive that I can’t tell you how badly I just wish things where back to normal. I sat down today hoping to get the blog back up to speed and this headache is just not letting it happen, so it’s back to bed again for me as per usual.

I really want to thank you guys for hanging in there with me through this horrible time and for the lovely messages I’ve had. How understanding and patient you guys are being makes me feel like the luckiest blogger in the world and I really hope I feel better soon and can get back to blogging because you have no idea how much I’ve missed it!

Hopefully this is just a withdrawal thing and I’ll be back with you guys in a week or so, and I hope you’re getting in a lot more reading than I am!

Thank you for being so patient and wonderful,

Jess x


  1. Oh honey, I just want to come see you and give you a hug and snuggle up to watch a movie or something, anything to make you feel better! This is where it sucks having friends so far away, I can't come and be a good one when you're sick! :(

    I sincerely hope your pain-med withdrawal goes as quickly as possible - maybe count down the days so you know it's almost over... Are you allowed to take other painkillers to help with the headaches (like, if you were having paracetamol-based tablets, can you take ibuprofen instead)? *sighs* Feel better soon sweetie, thinking of you... xx

  2. Oh, poor Jess! This sounds awful! Hope you get well soon! xx

  3. Oh hun, hang in there! And don't worry about the blog, we'll be here when you come back. Whenever that will be. I hope you get well soon! xxx

  4. Oh I feel so sorry for you, theres nothing worse than feeling ill all the time, hopefully its just because you have come off the medication, It was on the news this week that painkillers can cause headaches so maybe its related to that. Hopefully you'll be back to full strength soon! All the best! X

  5. Awww Jess that totally sucks especially when you thought you were getting better! Don't worry about the blog, we'll all still be here when you feel up to it! Take it easy! x
