…And starve a fever

December 15, 2009

Well, it seems I can be too ill to cook. I clearly tempted fate with my last post, because, soon after, I was struck down with something that had all the symptoms of swine flu. And I discovered something interesting about losing your appetite when ill. I found that I hadn’t exactly lost my appetite, but because I couldn’t taste or smell anything, the thought of eating food that had only texture was really off-putting. I read an article recently by a woman who lost her sense of smell and taste for several years after an accident. It had a devastating effect on her, and although I only had to suffer this for a few short days, I can totally sympathise with her.

Anyway, the last proper meal I managed to cook myself was on Saturday, but my head was so full of cold that I couldn’t think straight enough to write about it. Thankfully, I’m feeling a whole lot better now, so I’m going to stick it up later today.

The best thing about being ill? Feeding yourself up once you feel better!
