Six Word Saturday: pissing and moaning


I really really hate this cold!

This darn cold has really gotten me hung up this week.  I could feel it coming on Tuesday.  Wednesday was my day off and it really hit me.  I called out of work Thursday, Friday and today.  My fever comes and goes.  Coughing like crazy.  Blowing my nose so much, the poor little thing is really sore.  Who knew a head could hold this much fluid?  The one good thing is my appetite ain't so great.  I just don't feel like eating.

And no, I haven't gone to the doctor.  My insurance isn't so great and I won't have the funds to go until at least Monday.  If I still feel bad on Monday, I'll call, I promise.  The only time I went out was yesterday to take my support check to the bank (priorities, people!)  I didn't even comb my hair.. actually I haven't combed my hair since Tuesday.

It's amazing how wiped out I am by this!  For the past 4 days, I've basically sat on my sofa recliner with my tissues, water, tea and the remote, dozing on and off and catching up on NCIS and CSI and a few other shows. 

Thursday night, I started with a headache that only be described as a migraine.  This morning, it might be going away.  I'm not really sure yet.  It seems to come in waves.  

To top it all off, I went to bed early last night and then tossed and turned until 8 am.  I may have gotten a total of 2 hours of sleep.  I finally gave up, got up, got a shower (THANK GOD!!) and came downstairs.  I do feel a bit better after the shower.  I made it as hot as I could stand it.  I just hope I don't get the sweats again today.  

And where did I get this cold, you ask?  Why, from John, of course!  He started with it on Friday and I picked it up from him. So he's been sick at home at his place, I'm sick at home at my place.  And neither one of us feels well enough to drive to the other. Just as well.  I feel too crappy to take care of him and I know he'd sleep his life away, so I'd be on my own anyway!  hahaha   Ah well.... absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Oil of Oregano - 4 drops in a gel cap (can buy both at most health food stores, and I've seen the OofO at Walmart too). Twice the first day, then one a day for a week.

If you start taking it the second you feel it coming on, you won't get the cold at all OR it will be very minor. I take it myself, and I supply my group with it because we can't afford to not be able to sing ;)

Trust me!!

I'm gonna knock on wood before I say this, but I haven't felt too afflicted this year. Of course, the school year isn't quite over, and I'm around snotty teenagers 24/7, so there's still time. Feel better!

Aww Joanie, I hope you feel better.

Double up on the OJ and vitamin C

Joanie M said...

Wish I could, Candy. No OJ for me. Too much sugar. I went to the doctor. I'm now on mucinex, azithromycin, prednizone and proventil. and lots of tea.
