As the title says really! This will be my 12th day off work this term. I have had a stomach bug, chest infection, pleurisy and now another stomach bug. Completely fed up, love my job and want to be at work. I'm awaiting a gall bladder removal and at the moment seem to just look at a bug and I catch it. Everyone at work is being lovely but I know they are muttering behind my back and the parents are getting fed up too. At the moment my stomach is getting much better and I was hoping to be back today but have woken up with what feels like the start of yet another fluey bug. I just don't know what to do to build myself up. A friend has suggeted metatone (any experiences?) but couldn't find any in the local pharmacy and haven't the energy to go further afield. Plus I'm on so many different tablets I rattle. I am on a strict low fat diet because of the gallstones and having had what feels like a constant bug for 2 months I cannot control my weight loss. I can look in the mirror and count every bone down my back and ribs. It actually hurts to lie down as my hip bones stick out so much. I have never been very big but it's just getting ridiculous now. Don't really know why I'm posting just wanted to moan I suppose and ask for any advice to build up my immune system and to put on weight!
