I got up about 6:30am after another disturbed night of sleep this morning. However I did feel marginally better than yesterday, as my body had stopped aching.
I had a couple of mushed up weetabix's for breakfast and then spoke to Tom (my boss). He said not to worry about being ill, he has taken me off the work rota for the week, so I will just be added back in when I'm capable of working again. That's a bit of a relief as at one point it looked like if I was going to be off for too long, I would have to pay for my food and accomadation.
I went back to sleep after breakfast for a couple of hours, just to wake up drenched in sweat and feeling awful. I had a shower and took some of the paracetamol. I also spoke to mum who suggested taking the antibiotics I had in my fitaid kit she made me, so I have started taking those too. I am going to have to go to the doctors this week to either get enough drugs to finish the prescription (if it's working), or if it isn't working to get some different antibiotics.
It's another beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky and really nice and warm in the sun. The surf is pumping still, I am absolutely gutted I am missing it.
This whole illness thing has also made me think about home and made me a little bit home sick for the first time since Sydney. I'd love to be able to see everyone.
I have also been thinking a little bit about uni etc, as I am about as undecided as it gets. Do I really need to do 3 months farm work to get a second working holiday VISA? would I use a second VISA? Should I just do enough work to earn enough money to do the other touristy things in Aus then go home in time for uni? Should I just earn some money and go to Indo to surf and live on the cheap till uni? I have no idea.
I didnt do much with the rest of my day - bum around the camp trying to get some fresh air but felt too ill to anything.
I have a little bit of food for dinner then went back to bed and to sleep about 7pm.
