The topic: I'm feeling MUCH better
I feel almost human again.
Friday, Brian came home from work early because he's sick. But I don't think he has what I had. I think he has the flu, I had a cold.
He didn't feel bad enough to stay home, so we went to CostCo and got all of the stuff on our CostCo list (milk, eggs, cheese, you know, things we need) and came home. I got everything put away and we took it easy for the rest of the night.
One of the things we got was a different kind of cold/flu medicine, this was Tylenol brand. I took the Nighttime version, which was supposed to last six hours. The first thing it did was to really upset my stomach. It felt so bad, it was hard to stand up. I mixed a little baking soda with warm water and drank that down. I was able to burp a couple of times, which released the gas that was in my intestines. It was nasty.
Then, three and a half hours after taking it, I woke up. Coughing. This coughing fit was the worst I'd had since I got this damned cold. It went on and on and it hurt and my mind was running through the various ways of cutting out that part of my throat that just kept getting irritated. Saturday morning, I told Brian I'm not taking anything else for this cold. I'll take a cough drop, but no more of that crap that is supposed to help me sleep. The cure was worse than the disease, I swear.
So, nothing Saturday night and nothing last night. And I'm feeling almost human once again.
You know, when we go on our annual long Disney trip, it takes me a couple of weeks to recharge, to get back to a place where I can actually carry on a conversation with another human being, someone I'm not married to. Now I'm at a place where I can start to recharge. *sigh*
Two weeks behind schedule.
