I have a chronic illness that requires a shot (that I give myself) once a week. The medication causes fever and flu symptoms for 24 hours. I can trash my house in a matter of hours. Be kind to yourself, do what you can and ignore the rest. When my three kids were young I would try and keep juice, soups that I'd make and freeze and fruit around for sick days. I would keep a box of quiet activities that only came out on sick days. The same things work for me now. Last year on shot days, I made everybody in the family hats and scarves. Doing something productive even just a little bit at a time let me focus on something positive. Planning ahead and having the things I know I'll need eventually helps.
