We’ve all had colds, light ones, since a day or so before Christmas. Well, they progressed to just drippy and sneezy and scratchy throat off and on for us, but for me, it’s gotten worse since Saturday. That evening I was feeling worse, and also had felt allergic more than sick, so I took some Benadryl for those symptoms, which was fine since I ended up having to eat something for dinner than had had mushrooms in it. My swollen tongue from that was bad, but minimal in comparison to past encounters. So I woke up Sunday morning dragging, and just Frank and Victoria went to church. Asa has had a clear dripping nose constnatly, and Russell having more symptoms than Victoria or Frank. So I felt much better later, but still not great. Then I felt feverish late afternoon, and I was sort of flush faced. It wasn’t raging fever though.
Well, today I’ve stayed in be all day, I just feel a bit achy, it’s cold downstairs and I didn’t feel like getting dressed for it, so I stayed on my bed. My throat hurts today worse, actual hurt instaed of scratchy. And I feel feverish again since 2pm, chills on occassion, and my forhead and nose feel beadingly moist from the heat.
Laptop computers are a wonderful thing in this case.
I have two cats curled up on my lap sleeping, and another one handing out right at my side, bathing, and my computer is beyond that lower on the bed, with my keyboard and mouse by my side, wireless. My ‘puter is always on wireless networking as well. Just not wireless for power 🙂
I’ve been doing stuff over at Rotten Tomatoes while I’ve been ill today, and some on previous days too. For the fun of it I started a journal there purely for movie reviews. I have plenty of other places for journals or blogs, it’s just that this one has a community of movie stuff, and I can keep all that movie stuff over there. Rotten Tomatoes is a place with lots of collected info on reviews and movie, game, DVD, info, etc. and the USER stuff is nice, for making journals, groups, forums, on topics, on particular movies or celebrities or just any topic, like someone could use it as a regular weblog or topical on something, anyway, it’s free, and just a new thing to play with.
So please pray for my recovery soon. I don’t know what to call this. I never was one to know what is a cold, what is flu, etc. This is day 6 of whatever it is, and it’s only gotten worse since 4 a bit, then more on day 5 now more even more on day 6. Just a general achy-ish feeling, achy throat, flushed feeling, chills off and on. Definitley NOT that “run over by a truck” feeling— yet.
I haven’t done anything for this yet, but Frank is going to get me some Vit C, tomato soup, and cough drops for my throat. I’ll go nuts with the Vit. C. believe me. Maybe some garlic too. Tomato soup is always my favorite, particularly when sick. It cures every ache and pain. Nearly.
If there are typos in this, please forgive and overlook them. My computer is actually further away from me than I’d prefer, with all these cats, I can’t quite get the right foucs on the screen for good typing as I go, nor oroof reading. Oh well. Later I’m sure I’ll care enough to get that done. 🙂
