My cold started out Halloween weekend and it was enough to be annoying, THEN, this past Friday it knocked me on my rear end. I’ve spent the past few days in bed, but not being able to sleep because as soon as I even attempt to lie flat I begin to cough SO hard I feel like my appendix are ready to burst through my abdomen--and THAT’S bad because they were removed in 1981!
I saw my doctor Monday afternoon and she gave me prescription nasal spray, an inhaler and told me to take an Antihistamine and to just let the nasty virus run its course. Oh, goodie. I’m as tired and weak as a newborn baby and all I want to do is sleep, however, the cough won’t permit me to, yet I have to let this dog-gone thing run another five days!
The medications HAVE helped with the cough, so I’m hopeful I’ll be back to a somewhat normal state by the weekend, and I’m hoping I won’t pass any germs to my hubby or sons. I don’t see how that’s even remotely possible considering I’ve coughed all over EVERYTHING, even the dog, who hasn’t left my side, bless her heart.
I’ll be back to the keyboard as soon as I have enough oomph to keep my eyes open and my hands from shaking. Until then I hope none of you get this bug, so wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer! Trust me, you do NOT want THIS virus. Do not make the mistake of thinking you’re immune, either. I wasn’t sick for 3 years and I caught it!
Take care everyone! I miss you!
