Yup, it's definitely some sort of flu.

Spent twelve hours straight in bed, and that was probably my worst night in a long long time..

The first chunk of it was spent dreaming / hallucinating about being in the TV show Angel (since that's what Naomi and I were watching yesterday - I sort of saw that coming).. When I would wake up, I couldn't tell which parts were a dream, and what was real..

Then Angel became Eastenders, and I spent a few hours obsessively drawing lines in my head between characters, plot devices, storylines, scenes, it was.. odd... Brain hyperactivity is unpleasant.

Then finally I had a break, in which I dreamed about spending some time with Claire, who had moved back to Surrey and was working as a shelf packer in Tesco (odd thing for somebody with a PhD to be doing). We had a nice sedate conversation about life, walking along a country lane near Naomi's work, and it made a nice change from the other dreams.

Then I woke up and it was about midnight, and I was shaking uncontrollably, which wasn't great. That went on for several hours, in which my head was running around and around again.. Random thoughts, nonsense words, not being sure where I was or what was going on.. Nice..

I finally managed to get up to get a drink at 4am - I'm not sure what exactly happened in the time between, but it was bad anyway...

I'm awake now, and feeling a bit better.. Still, that was very unpleasant - I don't want to go through that again. Flu sucks :o\

I hope you feel better soon. :(

That said, dreams of being in a Joss-verse television show (it is Joss's Angel, right), sound kind of scary, and kind of great at the same time. Hope it was the latter.

Mummy sends her love and says to remember that you can take paracetamol and ibuprofen alternately every three hours and to make sure you write down what you're having and when. Oh, and to keep your fluids up.
