What is it about getting a head cold that makes you feel so foggy and horrible??
Sheesh. I haven’t been sick in so long (knock on wood) so I forget how grouchy, bitchy, whiny I am when I do get sick.
I have a head cold right now. With a bit of a cough. It’s knocking me flat on my ass in a way that I can’t remember with previous colds. My head hurts and feels compressed, I can’t concentrate, I’m talking WAY too fast, my eyes keep watering up and I go back and forth between being too cold and sweating.
I stayed home yesterday and spent a much needed day in bed trying to let my body recover, and because every single thing I did, even walking up or down my stairs, completely winded me and made me super tired. I didn’t want to miss anymore work though, so today I loaded myself up on the buckley’s cold medication and came in.
I’m not sneezing, or coughing (at least not nearly as much) or sniffling, but I can feel it there, lurking behind my nose and eyes, ready to lay me out again the second these pill wear off.
Damn you, spring time cold, robbing me of enjoying the immensely beautiful weather we finally have.
