It's the most wonderful time of the year....

...cold season. Gah! Usually it passes without so much as a nod from me, since I rarely ever get a cold. But this year, however, it hit me square in the face (or throat, as the case may be). My mom was sick, and gave it to my dad. He, in turn, gave it to me. Wonderful. It started on Friday with some sneezing and sniffling. I was hoping it was just my allergies acting up. Saturday started the sore throat. Sunday wasn't too bad. But I woke up Monday morning feeling like complete total and utter crap. I was coughing, sniffing, aching...it was horrible. And to make matters worse, it was RD's birthday, so I had things to do. I needed to clean up around his house a little, make him a birthday cake, and cook him dinner ( I made cornish game hens...yeah, I am awesome.) By the time dinner was on the table, I wanted to die. I had been on my feet all day, my eyelids could barely stay open. It sucked. The only day-time medicine he had was liquid Day-quil...I don't do liquid medication. We have issues with each other. I couldn't wait until it was a decent hour so I could take some medicine and go to bed. I don't even remember him coming up to bed, that was how out of it I was. I could barely talk when I woke up yesterday. It was horrible. I laid around watching "The Venture Bros." all day. Going to bed last night was horrible. The medicine wasn't working as well as before and I could not fall asleep. Anytime my head hit the pillow, I would keep coughing. Ugh.

So, I feel like death again today. Awesome! And it's also my special time, so I'm feeling super great. Haha. Sorry for the TMI. Just wanted to give you the full effect of how I'm feeling right now. I'm really hoping this passes soon because it's a busy weekend for me coming up. I have a million things to do and I won't feel like doing them if this is how I will be feeling.

Well, it's time to end this pretty little post...

What do you do when you have a cold?

OMG... I had that EXACT cold a few weeks ago, and it was death. I hated it, worst cold I've had in YEARS. My ribs still hurt from the amount I coughed and hacked up pieces of my lung.

For me I just tried to rest as much as possible, and made sure I was getting the gross phlegm out as much as possible. Nasty... but necessary. Drink LOTS of water!
