I knew I had company with the migraine thing, so, to continue with my health woes, I would like to share how I have NEVER been so sick with the cold crud as I am right now. On Sunday afternoon I thought my left-over migraine was taking a funky tone, so I figured I'd take a quick rest with the boys. By the time I woke up I had this annoying little tickle in the back of my throat and I could tell I had some sinus pressure starting to build. Sunday evening just got worse and worse and I went to bed thinking, "Crap, I got the crud." The crud is my medical professional term for the snots (or just sinus pressure) and phlegm that leave you all hacking and coughing and aching. Sure enough, Sunday night was not that restful and I finally got up at 6:15 yesterday cuz I couldn't sleep and I needed to clean my house. I figured I would soldier thru my errands and carpools yesterday, but by the afternoon I was a wreck. I was totally fever-y and could NOT stop coughing which is leaving my throat feeling sore and my muscles worn out as I have to brace myself everytime I hack away. Why would I have to brace? SO I DON'T PEE MY PANTS. Don't laugh, it's annoying. Nothing like childbirth to weaken the old bladder. Last night was even worse and so I have loaded up on vitamin C (thanks to my new juicer and fresh citrus from AZ) and don't plan on doing much today.
I don't mean to keep complaining about my health, so I imagine I will give it another day before I am back on the mend. Thank goodness for Tylenol and lazy days. I have studied my "What to Expect" book and will trying to gargle with salt water here shortly. Lovely. Any quick fix remedies?
