Here we go again. I am sick...again. This is the second time in 30 days and the third time in 8 months I've been sick. Right after we lost our Pooka, I was sick for about 5 weeks. All sorts of weird stuff - couldn't talk for three days, couldn't taste anything for five days, sniffles, cough, fever. Not fun.
Then last month hubby had the flu, diagnosed by his primary doctor. I fought as hard as I could, but ended up getting a cold that lasted about a week. Nothing too crazy - stuffy nose, cough, sore throat. Enough to be frustrating, but not enough to keep me too down.
Then this past Friday I woke up with a drippy nose. It hasn't been awful, like a full-blown cold, but I have been taking Sudafed and NyQuil. I've been hoping between the two that at some point when they wear off, I'll feel better. So far, nada. Still waking up with a stuffy nose and slight cough.
It hasn't been too bad, but I haven't hit the roads since I've been sick because I'm afraid it will get worse. I once went out on a 12 mile run, then got a horrible upper respiratory infection for two weeks! With my half coming up at the end of March, I can't afford two weeks! Maybe one, but two? Nope!
So, here I sit. Not feeling great, but not feeling awful either. In a no-mans-land of illness. Hoping that it doesn't get any worse so I can go out on Saturday for a run.
Have you been battling illness this winter? What do you do when you aren't feeling well?
