"It's My Turn (Now)"

After moving at an absolutely glacial pace for the last 5 days, the cold that the Big Guy so thoughtfully shared with me, has finally begun to manifest most of the more unpleasant symptoms.  Of course, it hasn't actually made any effort to leave me and move on to some other poor soul.  Nope, it has settled in, fully invading my sinuses, my lungs, my throat, and my eyes.  I am well and truly sick.

Coughing, sneezing, blowing, hacking, and generally affecting every square inch of me and making me miserable.  I'm sleepy and have zip energy.  And I can't hear too well!  Gee thanks, Mikey.  Actually he still feels pretty crummy too, which is not a good thing.  Hold on, gotta snee...............(God bless me!)

I told you the other day that I haven't had a cold in nearly three years, so I guess I shouldn't complain that "It's My Turn (Now)"....I really shouldn''s not anybody's fault will go away eventually, won't it?   I just hope it's gone real soon!

Don't get too close!  I don't want you to catch it.  Ahh, it's time for more decongestant.  I'll  be able to actually breathe for a little while.  Oh Joy!


  1. Yuck! I've had several one-day colds the past few months, but so far have been spared anything worse. Hate colds - for me they turn into sinus crap and then coughing for weeks.

    By the way, I'm having the second eye done on Feb 2nd! Wish me luck!

  2. Ugh, I'm sorry, Mellodee! I've got the junk too. Mine's not in my chest (thankfully) but I'm surprised just how much it's zapped my energy. It seems to be more than just a normal cold. Hope you're better soon.

  3. Feel better soon, Mel. My brother tells me that warmer weather is headed your way. Maybe that will help.
    I have it too. Mine is in the ears and head. But it's a little better today. So, don't give up hope. This too shall pass!

  4. So sorry you are sick. It has been going around and around in our family since Christmas..yuk!

  5. Ah, you've joined my club. I was pretty vigilant about taking Dayquil and Nyquil and cough medicine and getting as much rest as possible. I'm on the mend and will be returning to work tomorrow. Feel better soon!!!

  6. Okay, first the Christmas Eve thing and now this cold? You've gotta stop with saying 'never.' ;) Hope you feel better very soon.
