I didn’t believe it when I read that it might take me two weeks to recover from the flu. I was sure that I could beat it after a few days, maybe a week. So during that time, I put all non-essential activities on hold. My head was in a fog. I didn’t feel like reading. I couldn’t tolerate a computer screen or a phone. Social media roared on without me. And to my horror, I developed a disinterest in blogging. My obsessive need to check my stats, reach out and comment sat alone and ignored on a distant shelf.
Bloggers have a funny relationship with their real life and their blog life. We all know that the real life takes priority, but we need the other part too, so our feet are in both worlds. And getting the flu, while temporarily dramatic, is a blip in the routine. People have much bigger problems.
It has taken the full two weeks, but the fever is gone and the fog is lifting. So watch out, because I’m feeling like my old self again. I want to know all your news and tell you mine!
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
