I have been having some incidences of feeling feverish and shaking. Yesterday evening it was so bad that I phoned the NHS Direct for a diagnosis. A friendly nurse phoned me back and said that I might be coming down with something.
So I phoned the doctors and told them that I might be coming down with something. The telephone receptionist said that Monday morning was not that convenient a time to be ill but eventually agreed that my symptoms should be looked at as I might be coming down with something.
The doctor asked me questions and looked at this and that with his devices and typed some words into his boxes. He said that I should eat soup (chicken) and that I would ‘probably recover’ (actual words). I have a bit of a virus apparently, which is the medical term for ‘coming down with something’.
To make myself feel a little better I watched a bit of the Church of England Synod on the BBC Parliament. What a splendid bunch of people. They do a good job of debating the issues of the day on all of our behalves and I would not have known that it was on the television had I not been suffering illness. Hopefully it will be on again tomorrow.
