Sniffles, Sneezes and Coughs

When I wasn't looking, the cold bugs snuck in and attacked. I've been sniffling and sneezing and talking like a hoarse frog for two days. My head hurts, my ears hurt, my nose is rubbed raw from Kleenex and my eyes are puffy and itchy. I can't sleep more than a few minutes at a time.

Just what I needed - a summer cold. They should really outlaw those things.

The dogs are concerned and follow me around, ready to take a nap at a moment's notice if that will help. Mother says she hates to see me sick, since she depends on me for everything. Somehow she made it sound like I got sick on purpose just to inconvenience her. I told her it wasn't my idea, but I'm not sure she believed me.

And the lot of the caregiver is such that you can't just pile up in bed and wait it out. Though I'm going to spend as much time there today as I can manage.

{Sneeze}. God, bless me.

Welcome to my world. Twelve hours is a long shift when you feel bad. Seven or eight nights in a row makes it worse. I just wish I could breath well enough to sleep on my twelve hours off. At least you don't smell the chemicals/plant as bad when you're stuffed up....see, there's always a bright side!
