It is a viral infection....pretty broad really when you think that EBOLA is one too as is HERPES SIMPLEX (although I think we can safely rule out both of them.) The doctor actually said 'Olbas is the way forward'. Steaming Olbas in fact. So that is what I will do, later. I have had to call work and say I cannot go in tomorrow as well. It strikes me as very odd letting them know in advance of my illness. Comes from being imprinted at an early age with the notion that whatever the ailment, it was 'probably nothing' or a bit of 'attention seeking' and unless one was unable to physically drag oneself there, school/work was NOT TO BE MISSED.
I am going now to tuck myself up in bed again, and to get some rest. I hate for the girls to come home to a listless mother, so I will snooze while they are out.
