OMG, I have a massive head cold. I’m absolutely miserable!
I can’t remember when I last had a cold, but it has to be 13 to 15 years ago! Yeah … somehow I lucked out and didn’t catch one for years, but I think I’m paying for that now. Sigh … cough cough sniffle.
My brother was here just after Christmas, he’d come to Toronto because my niece was getting married on the 30th of December. He’d had a cold earlier in the month when he was in the city on business and as it turns out he either still had it or got a new cold just as he was leaving Vancouver to come and stay with us at the end of December.
So I think he’s the one who passed on a cold to my husband and I. Darn brother!
I was sniffly last week and I thought that maybe I’d get past this with just mild cold. My husband had the sniffles too and his cold got worse towards the end of last week but was pretty much over after a day or two. I somehow still thought mine might not get worse.
I was wrong … wrong wrong wrong!
On Monday afternoon I got a bad fever, felt really tired and my sniffles got worse. By Tuesday my nose was running like Niagara falls! I think I’ve gone through at least two tissue boxes on my own.
Last night I went to the drug store to get some more decongestants and a nasal spray (which aren’t really helping much BTW) and my eyes were so blurry I almost walked up to the cash with a box of adipex diet pills.
I thought my cold would be better by today … especially with the nasal spray that I added to my arsenal last night but if anything it’s worse! My nose is running constantly, my eyes are tearing and my vision is blurred. I’m also dizzy when I get up and I’ve got pressure at the top of my head – probably from stuffed up sinuses. I’ve also barely slept in the last four days.
I hope that once I get over this cold I luck out and don’t get another one for another 10 to 15 years!
Don’t you just hate head colds?
