Thank you for your kind comments on my last post. I thought I'd give you a little update on how my visit went this afternoon after this morning's slightly upsetting phonecall .
Essentially, the Dr agrees that I'm not depressed (see, I told you!) and that it is post-viral fatigue. She said she thinks my immune system basically freaks out when I get a virus (well... she didn't use those exact words) and this will probably be my body's response to it anytime I get a full on virus... which explains a lot about the last four or five years.
She's signed me off work for another two weeks (which gets a boo for not being able to go back but also a yey for her understanding I'm not well enough to go back) and wants me to keep resting but gradually increase my activity levels a little more every day too.
She also apologised for upsetting me this morning and saying I was depressed, which I thought was incredibly nice of her.
So the plan for the next two weeks goes something like this:
♥ Even if you think you're better, rest a little more
♥ Plan in a small activity every day - a walk to the corner shop etc
♥ Drink lots, eat healthily, keep the brain active
One of the most frustrating things is it's looking like I probably won't be able to run the York 10k and I'm a little worried about my Great North Run entry too... I'll cross that bridge when I come to it I guess.
What's your favourite Doctor Doctor joke?
