No, I'm not sad. Sniffle, sniffle, cough SNEEZE!
I have the worlds worst cold! I am in agony, I can't breathe, eat, or sleep and my head is killing me. On the upside this should really, really, really be helpful for my diet right? ;)
Now I don't like taking pills, of any kind. But last night I gave in and decided to take the worlds most EVIL cough medicine, there is nothing grosser.
I HATE the stuff, and only use it in case of dire emergencies. Last night was definitely one of those. So I found the bottle of NyQuil the Hubby had stashed on his side of the medicine cabinet, measured out the right dose, grabbed myself a TALL glass of water to wash the nasty down. Plugged my nose......downed it...... drank 2 glasses of water.....gargled and spit 5 times......drank more water......finally I gave up and headed for bed still gagging. About 30 minutes later I fell asleep, and 1-1/2 hours later I woke up...... wide awake.... still can't breath, my head still hurts.
WHAT IN THE HECK!!!!!!!
So I lay awake trying to breathe, dozing off every once in awhile.
At about 4:30 am I give up and get up to go sit in my rocking chair and read, at least I have a great read going. I must have dozed off because the next thing I know my Hubby is wsking me up asking if I'm OK.
So I tell him all about by problems with his NyQuil, and he chuckles & tells me "Hunny, that stuff is really old, I tried it about a month ago & it didn't work" Chuckle Chuckle.
I drank that nasty stuff for nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So now I still can't breathe, eat or sleep & my head still hurts. And I'm mad :& and I hate NyQuil more than ever!
Hopefully it gets better quickly, I have a scrap night planned for tomorrow. I will just focus on that and go to my happy place.
