Tempi duri / Hard times

Foto source: Flickr via Pinterest

Cercavo un'immagine che potesse esprimere lo stato di prostrazione fisica e mentale in cui mi trovo da un mese a questa parte, e penso di averla trovata: questo teddy accasciato ad un muro potrei essere io, in seguito al contagio da megaloeritema infettivo!
Ora mi fa anche un po ridere, ma devo dire di essere stata preoccupata (molto preoccupata) dal mio stato di salute, un corollario di disturbi culminato in uno scompenso del sistema linfatico, che per qualche giorno mi ha fatto anche pensare al peggio...
Invece, si è rivelato essere una banale malattia esantematica contagiata da mia figlia, ma che su di me ha avuto (e continua a tuttoggi ad avere) effetti davvero tragici!
Malditesta costante, dolori articolari, rigidità delle membra, linfonodi del collo e delle spalle enormi e duri, esami del sangue che presentano una marcata anemia, e finalmente: esantema a schiaffo, prima sul viso e poi sul resto del corpo, abbastanza doloroso (come una scossa elettrica).
So che non è molto divertente, ma se doveste avere questi sintomi, anzichè farvi autodiagnosi tragiche come quelle che ho fatto io, interrogatevi se per caso non avete contratto la sottovalutata "quinta malattia" dei bambini :-(
Bene, questa chiarirà alla maggior parte di voi la mia totale assenza dal Miniland e dal web, e chiedo scusa a tutti quelli che stanno attendendo qualcosa da me (soprattutto Vicky!), ma spero di poter presto tornare a rallegrarvi con le tonnellate di novità arrivate al Robin's Nest :-)
Mi dò tempo fino a domani: da lunedì si riparte alla grande (spero)!
Un debole ma affettuoso abbraccio a tutti nel mondo.

I was looking for an image that would express the state of physical and mental prostration in which I am a month now , and I think I have found it : this teddy slumped against a wall could be me , in response to infection by infectious "megaloeritema" !Now it makes me laugh a little , but I must say I was worried (very worried) by the state of my health , a corollary of disturbances culminated in a failure of the lymphatic system , which for a few days also made me think the worst .. .Instead, it turned out to be a trivial pox infected by my daughter , but that's about me has had (and continues to this day to have ) effects really tragic !
Constant headaches , joint pain, stiffness of limbs, lymph nodes in the neck and shoulders huge and hard, blood tests that show a marked anemia, and finally : rash to slap on the face first and then the rest of the body , painful enough ( as an electric shock ). 
I know it is not much fun , but if you have these symptoms , rather than make you self tragic as those that I have done , question if by chance you have contracted the underrated " fifth disease " of children :-( 
Well, this will clarify the most of you my total absence from Miniland and the web , and I apologize to all those who are waiting for something from me (especially Vicky ), but I hope to come back soon to rejoice with tons of new features arrive at the Robin 's Nest :-)
I give myself until tomorrow: Monday it starts great (I hope)!
A weak but affectionate hug to everyone in the world

  4. I'm so sorry for you Flora, I caught that virus from a grandchild some years ago, it's bad for an adult and takes a long time to fully recover. I hope your ordeal is over soon, a gentle hug for you.

  8. Flora, I'm so sad to see that you are so ill. Please hang in there! I don't know if you believe in prayer, but nevertheless I do and I will say a prayer for you. Hopefully it will bring you some relief and healing!

  9. Dear Flora, I am so sorry to hear you have been suffering so much! It is a big relief to know that it is not "the worst"... but still... it is difficult enough! You must take Very good care of yourself and rest a lot! The minis can wait and Blogfriends can wait.... it is most important that you get well! (But sometimes lying in bed while stitching on tiny minis is a good way to "rest" and "recuperate"!) I hope you are feeling better soon!

  19. Hi Flora! Being sick STINKS and I am so sorry that you have been having such a rough time of it for so long. I sincerely hope that your body, mind and spirit are mending well and that you will soon be back again. My mother eloquently expressed her own time of extended illness as "being sick and tired of being sick and tired". I am sure that you must be feeling the same.
    Get well soon!
