Recovering...

I'm now getting back to normal- slowly admittedly- but I'm catching up.

This past week has been awful- I had an infection under a back molar that was extremely painful, and caused my face to swell up from cheek to jaw. And not helped by lost sleep...

Certainly made me realise how dreadful, and deadly, toothache would have been hundreds of years ago- no strong antibiotics.

I did try writing one day, but after 300+ words I gave up. There's probably 100 usable ones among those 300+.

Now it's back to all the other writing related projects that have been on hold, and as a few have imminent deadlines I' won't post until Wednesday/Thursday, rather than my usual Sunday.

I have an idea for this next post, but I need to speak to a few other writers first...

Hope the remainder of your weekend is problem-free.

Ooh, Carol, you have my sympathy. It's hard to concentrate on anything with that sort of pain and lack of sleep.
Hope you are feeling much much better x

Patsy said...

Ouch, Carol. I'm impressed you wrote anything at all.

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Hope that tooth problem has cleared up a bit by now!

Thanks, Teresa, I'm recovering slowly.

I only managed to write in-between pain-killer dosing, Patsy. :0

I'm getting there slowly, Rosemary. Still not totally cleared up, but I'm not dosed up to the eyeballs anymore. :)

Glad you're recovering, Carol! And I know what you mean about 100 usable words. I have learned from bitter experience that my writing is dreadful when I'm ill - that's the time to read, not write.

You're right, Lizy, it's much better to read than write when you're ill. I only wrote those few hundred words because they were stuck in my head and needed to be written down.

It's taking me longer to recover than I expected, too.
