There’s no way to describe how a person feels with a cold because this cluster of germs hit us in different ways.
Mine started Monday with runny nose, itchy eyes and constant sneezing. There was no stopping the feeling of being overcome with what drags you down. And I thought it was just allergies.
When I woke up Tuesday morning, at the usual early hour, I truly felt like garbage and the hi-jinx and smart cracks of day were not remotely funny. They still aren’t into Day 3.
Irritation that runs deeper than what the cold brings. Not just wheezing, coughing, sniffles, sneezing but loud noises and nonsense that other wise would roll away like, well water off a duck’s back.
I take a class on Wednesday evening, but alas don’t think I’ll be going to it. The Stand Up Comedy 101 is not really going to be that funny tonight. Yesterday, I slept for probably seven hours straight, went to bed and clocked another six. The only way to snap out of this hiccup in health is to sleep and look after one’s self.
With little appetizing food at my place, I ended up eating very little and not drinking much in the fluid department. Although the ice cold water felt pretty good on my burnt out throat.
We had the flu shot last week, does that weaken your system. Seems like everyone is battling bugs. A flu is, of course, much different than having a cold.
So, pull up the blanket – bring on the soup and liquids and kiss Wednesday good bye!
