But, whatever the case is or could be; does anything make you feel tired when popping out your think-tank brain and army-kinda fingers and hawk-sharped eyes to put the blog idea worded into sentence to sentence long.
I hope it does even seldom. Even for a few days in a month. Even for a few hours in a day. Even for a few minutes in any hour. But whenever it does, you loose control of yourself and all you just wanna do is to crash into bed.
Sounds about right? Of course it is, I hope. 🙂
Okay, same is happening with me since last morning.
What happened to me?
And it all started with bad influenza.. Or better say a killing influenza.. And I am too tired to even think straight.
I have an influenza started about seventeen years ago when we moved into this village (I hope I am doing the math right), and the issue is I get violent flu just in the summer time. All long summer-y months I am sneezing and sneezing for like ten times in a row.
I had taken too many treatments to fight with it all homeopathic but nothing worked. I am fond of homeopathic because of its less impact, slow reaction, and that it is sweet. 🙂
But today, I did something wrong I guess. I am repenting on it..
I am allergic to sunshine only in the summer. As I go into the sunshine, I start sneezing so badly that It feels like just the last breaths..
In the morning, yesterday, I went out with the doubt that I will get the flu plus sneezing but I still went out on the bicycle. As I peddled it for a minute I started sneezing and oh GOD! it was just too much. Never had experienced such intense sneezes before.
Well, then I quickly decided to go to the doc. and as I reached there, I described him all my situation and he just gave me one medicine and told me to take two tablets everyday, one in the morning and one in the night (not after sleeping 🙂 .. )
Then I did. I took the first tablet in the morning as I returned back to home. Then gosh… I slept for six hours. Straight six hours after waking up like 2 hours ago. I am shocked as I only sleep for about 4-5 hours in a day. Still I am so shocked.
I woke up at around 5pm and was barely having my eyes opened. Couldn’t move or sit. Couldn’t up my hands. Felt so dizzy and the head was like spinning in all directions. I waited for fifteen minutes laying in the bed immoveable.
I had no idea what to do. And what I had to do. Couldn’t think straight with that heavy head and couldn’t eat as well. I skipped the lunch and dinner.
I started to curse that medicine in imaginations that it made me this worst, letting me felt like I didn’t know anything or even existed.
While I was cursing and cursing then after a few minutes I happened to realize one thing. Actually noticed a change in me.
What was that change?
No more sneezing. Not a single sneeze from the morning. No flu. Literally nothing.
Wow! That was a change, a major one!
I suddenly turned into a most happiest person. Compelled to dance because I probably had found out the cure to my this ugly allergy. 🙂
But it cost me something.
It did. Not a major one but still it did. But I think it was a major one.
It took my whole day from me, the time which I could utilize doing something like maybe writing or spending with the family or exercising or anything.
But it is all okay. Everything happens for a reason, correct?[Tweet “Everything wasted you should make it up the other time to not call it a wastage.”]
Blogging is very hard when you’re DOWN
It is very hard as I experienced it. The few lines from the beginning I wrote while I was down due to medications. I wasn’t thinking even straight and was just typing and typing without thinking for a second. I didn’t know what I wrote and I was just typing and deleting.
Those initial content I corrected today after feeling some-well.
Too tired to blog? Skip Blogging, please..
Yeah, you should NOT blog. As I work from home, I pick my own hours of work and have better chances to rest for more hours. Actually you shouldn’t even do anything. You might be thinking about what to do then. I will tell you later.
Isn’t it a blessing to work from home, right? You can even work anytime, go off during the day time to make some rest or go out to refresh yourself. Can work in night time if it suits you but don’t push for it as a daily routine. Don’t go beyond 1am.
In most cases where new bloggers and online employees tend to work late in the night (ahh! the call centers thing…), keeping this schedule for long term just does not work. In the day you can’t even fill your sleep time up due to distractions in home when everyone is up and in the result, you feel down after getting up in the afternoon or evening and you won’t be able to sustain the focus.
So, make your day time your friend.
And yeah, when you are down then just don’t push at all for work rather rest so much. Working during downtime, it won’t make any good while you struggle to think, to act and to complete. And working from home, you have so much flexibility to manage your downtime caused by some illness. But the summary is don’t work at all.

That BloomBerg’s article really got me! I liked their story-telling style which portrayed what minor things we don’t even get to notice can actually make you sick. Even I laughed hard on the line where a colleague reaches you and does a handshake with you and right after he tells you how bad he has a cold. 🙂
The end of the story in my blog post and BloomBerg’s; Do not work while you’re tired and sicked.
In our cases, we shouldn’t think of blogging when we are so much tired to blog! Okay? Are you getting me?
CTA … Actually Call to Action, yeah!
Okay, not actually a call but I want to know what do you think of it all? And what do you do and suggest to do when you’re dead tired caused by sickness? Do you rest or just push for blog?
Do let me know!
