Feeling blue

Today has been a blue day. I'm meant to be at work but I ended up waking up being sick at 5am and that's the way the rest of the morning panned out. I'm wondering if its some nasty reaction to the vaccination I had to have at the medical on Tuesday - yet another MMR jab. I was feeling cranky and achey ever since I had it on Tuesday, then yesterday it developed into a bit of a head cold and another headache. Thing is i'm rarely ever sick. Just feels so odd. 

Perhaps this whole visa thing is draining me I've been working myself into such a huge stress and panic about it all. That it's just come to the point where your so totally drained out your body gives up on you for a day or two. Sometimes you feel like your whole relationship and what you have is just about the visa and trying to get it, and being with each other again. Not seeing Joe since March is taking it's toll, just want my boy back.

I really don't meant to write a depressing post i'm just having one of those days. It doesn't help when both mine and Joe's phones play up so the texts get lost somewhere over the ocean. At least so far i've had no word from the medical [no news is good news in this case]. 

On a side note some people are randomly claiming they are having issues posting comments on my blog - I'm not sure if it's affecting many people but as far as i'm aware there's no problems? Sometimes if your using IE as your b browser it hates blogger .. but after that I have no clue!

  1. Yes, sounds like the jab to me, I had a similar thing, sort of a delayed reaction. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Feeling like that isn't uncommon after an MMR, rest up, it should pass soonish, might be worth giving NHS direct a ring if your not better tomorrow x

    *works one too many vaccination clinics*

  3. Ah thanks for letting me know DaisyChain, I re-found the PIL and noticed it said it was under the slight side effects list. Haven't been sick since first thing, just feeling nauseous now.

    Thank you for the best wishes guys x

  4. Could be the jab, but perhaps its just a reaction to all the stress and build up for the medical. Hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself.

  5. Hope you feel better soon, my little boy had his MMR jab two weeks ago and he'd developed a real nasty cough, his glands are up and he is generally being grizzly so think he's not feeling great either :o( Scarlett x

  6. Oh no! I hope you feel better right away! xo

  7. Hope you feel a million times better soon. It must be so hard. x

  8. I hope you get better soon. And I really wish that all you see your boyfriend very soon!

  9. Ugh, I'm feeling exactly the same; the only difference is that all mine is self-inflicted! Not quite so much sympathy...

    Hope you're feeling better soon. x
