Being Ill, but not really unwell

That's a conundrum. I can't sit down for five minutes, but I can think for ten. I can't talk to anyone without getting irritated because my skin is hot and itchy. But I can say "hello" nicely.

I can't make dinner, but I can make a cup of tea. I can't watch TV but I can read twitter.

Seems this illness breaks time into small chunks; quanta of attention.

If it takes longer than five minutes, I will have to stand up, frown, and walk around a bit.

Took me an hour to write this. That's a symptom too.
