ctlss's Journal, 13 January 2013


I was awakened this morning by a throat that felt as if it was on fire. It is simply red and tylenol is keeping it under control, but I still feel terrible. My head feels like someone is inside with a giant mallet playing my brain like a big kettle drum. UGH!

We were running low on eggs and fresh veggies, so after dosing myself with cough syrup, decongestant, and tylenol, taking a hot shower to help with the muscle aches, DH and I ventured up to Waldo World to restock and pick up more medicine, including SF Ludens. Those little ruby colored gems are AWESOME for sore throats and NO SUGAR!! YAY. The trip took me twice as long as normal, not because it was crowded (actually, it was pretty empty...and a lot of people there were as sick as I), but because I am moving at a snail's pace. Just have no energy at all and when I do anything, it's like someone is sitting on my chest. If it doesn't get better soon, guess I'll make a trip to the doctor.

I did okay with the food today, and actually had a fair to middlin' number of steps with my trip to Waldo World.

Dan is making peppers stuffed with meat and cheese along with homemade spaghetti sauce. That and salad will be dinner when (and if) I feel like eating.

Well, that's about all the news that's fit to print from my corner...hope all is well in your's!

Oh no!!!! :( I'm so sorry you are still feeling so miserable, that's the worst when you can't even sleep! Glad you were at least able to venture out and get some relief, I agree with the choice of heading to the doctor soon if it doesn't go away. Ugh. Ooh, stuffed peppers are yummy, enjoy it if you can!

Thanks, Erika. I hate sore throats...they are the worst part I think, since every time you swallow, it starts up again, and so you dread swallowing! Hubby makes the best stuffed peppers!

I hope you are feeling better by tonight. I haven't talked to you for awhile. I hope your holidays were good too. I haven't seen you much on FB either.

Oh boy... doesn't sound like you're on the mend, that's for sure! Take care of that and don't put off the doctor too long. You don't want to find out you've got pneumonia! Take it easy, dear friend. Hope the shopping is out of the way so you can just relax, stay warm and let that dear hubby of yours take care of you. Love and hugs to you, Stef!
