The late January lurgy

The January lurgy has struck again, which means that I am struck down by a cold/flu/chest infection. I'm not sure which. It's probably not flu, although I can hardly walk as all my joints, neck and eyes ache like crazy.

I'm not looking for sympathy, honest, but it is a rotten way to end the month. This year is already flying by. I can't keep up!

Another side affect of this is that I can't smell all that much and feeling rubbish doesn't lend itself to wearing perfume, in my book. So I'm abstaining so far this week. Hopefully I'll be back on track soon.

Do any of you find you can't wear perfume when feeling ill?


  1. I am stuck exactly in the same horrible place. Third week now. Can't smell well, feel sleepy all the time, i do not even want to wear perfume...

  2. Memoryofscent, I'm sorry to hear that. Three weeks is not good. I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Sympathise, Michael. If I am poorly, perfume is the last thing on my mind. Get well soon!

  4. Vanessa, thanks for that. I'm feeling a lot better today, so think I've got past the worst of it!

  5. I cannot wait perfume when I'm ill as it's usually is not soothing to me but distracting.

    And glad you're on the mend!!!

  6. Frida, its pretty much the same for me. I can extend that to when I'm feeling emotionally fragile as well, although I expect for a lot of people it might be the opposite.
