Feeling Yuk

I didn't go to work today. I came home early yesterday feeling yuk. I went to bed feeling okay the night before and then got up with the most horrendous head cold.

It feels like a slime monster has set up home in their and is having a thumping big party. My head aches, I keep sneezing (such an annoying bodily response), my nose runs incessantly (another really annoying bodily response and really gross too), I feel dizzy and my throat is sore. My nose is redder than Rudolf's from constant nose blowing (even using those balm tissues) and quite unseasonal, it being July.

I am not a good patient but then I'm my own nurse so that's not too much of a problem. I hate being ill. I get very frustrated with feeling too awful to do anything except lie on the sofa. Life is too short to feel this bad. The slime monster must leave and take his party guests with him.

:( Terribly sorry you have a Summer cold -- those are always the worst. Make someone make you some home made chicken soup. I swear it is like you've died and gone to heaven.

I recommend a whiskey and a massage.

Of course, I recommend that for everything.

Get well, and

Da Bug seems to be going around the site at the moment, there's at least 4 in our team who probably have it.

They get no sympathy of course when they get to coughing, because my PowerSneezing has made people totally unresponsive to people honestly coughing :-)

I recommend a massage and the steam room, and then a glass of wine! Hope you feel better soon.

there does seem to be something going around. all the humidity here and the constant AC has made me feel like my head is in a vise, under water.

Not a great feeling.

I hope you feel better soon.

Aww, man. I was running around Cub Scout camp and you're fighting the flu?

No fair. Hope you're feeling better now.
