Well, most of you've seen my other post in pain medications about if I could take Theraflu after the onset of a cold that hit me Sunday. (I can and have been, not that it's helped much.)
Yesderday was a little worse than Sunday, but as I woke up and felt a bit better, of course I got my Wally out for a walk. We met my little rainbow, Jeanne (70-yr-old friend), who we walk with and Wally's girlfriend little Kati (ok, not so little at 55 lbs.), and she told me she had this cold and that the first two days are the worst. So I figured that I'd feel better today (Tuesday). She said that she would wake up in the middle of the night coughing and with sore sinuses, but it went away rather quickly, after two days. That didn't happen to me last night, so I thought I'd be getting off a bit easier than Jeanne did.
So that puts me in the weenie catagory for Sunday because today is the worst I've felt so far. This morning (it's 3am on Tuesday) I feel like total dog doodoo. I've woken up with what she explained, bad cough and terribly sore sinuses. I'm drinking Theraflu, which doesn't seem to help, have a job interview tomorrow which I'm considering asking the guy if we should wait until Friday, wishing I had someone here to go get me chicken soup, go get me better medicine and just baby me like my mom used to do. I have the afphgan my mom made me years ago, which is nice for the days, but being the middle of the night, I have the wonderful fuzzy blanket my hubby bought me as a surprise before my first surgery, knowing my recliner would be my bed for the first two weeks.
Ok, I'm rambling now. Yes, I'm feeling sorry for myself, I've been stuck in the house for what will be three days, am up in the middle of the night not knowing if I'll get back to sleep and feel yucky. (Stop here due to TMI, but even woke having lost bowel control in the middle of the night).
We're lucky that the pain meds and muscle relaxers really do help with the body aches which can be debilitating, but what to do about the sinuses and coughing? Guess I might make a trip to the drug store today sporting my ball cap. Of course, a hot shower might just feel wonderful if I can stand long enough for one. Ooopsy, now I just realized that after my middle-of-the-night "incident", a shower will definitely be on my morning schedule.
Ok, I'm done ranting now. Hope you all don't get this nasty little sickness, frankly it sucks.
Hope you all are sleeping,
