|not so pretty good|
March 21, 2011
Spring has sprung! YAY!!! Only not so much--I'm so happy the days are getting longer, things are blooming, temps are warmer and alla that, but I've been sick for a week! Seriously!
What started as a sore throat, which I rarely get, has morphed into this horrible hacking cough/snot fest. Sounds lovely doesn't it? I've been doing everything "THEY" recommend, but it just isn't helping. The good news is, I am coughing and nose blowing so I know things are moving around in there, but I want it all out.
Saturday morning I blew my nose no less than 45 times. Once was so hard [unintentionally] that my ear popped and I became dizzy. To make it even weirder, I could here the fluids moving inside my Eustachian tube. Freakin bizarre I tell ya.
I feel bad about feeling bad. I'm tired of the coughing, this is a workout I never expected. I'm tired of blowing my nose. Thank goodness stuff is coming out or I'd really be frustrated.
Yesterday, I managed to get some much needed tidying done around here, laundry, cooked supper and even felt like going for a walk. Brian and I went to the nearby marina and did the small lap-about a mile. All my effort was focused on getting enough air. I did it though; coughing and wheezing the whole way. I'm a mess kids.
Today has brought neck soreness, a pounding head and more of the same...more water, drugs and tea. I am so done with this. Really! I'm gonna chill and read-take it easy.
I know Mondays are supposed to be positive so here is my high note: My homework is finished and ready to go for tonight. I hope I feel up to going to class tonight because if right now is any indication, I'm doomed.
