Ben started it 3 weeks ago with a horrible cough. By the time we were back from Tennessee, Chan had it and in a day or two, so did I. The doc said allergies-post nasal drip to be exact. Something has us making snot, THAT'S for certain.
At first, it killed my appetite, then as the weekend hit, I started coughing any time I ate anything. Coughing until I throw up. The last thing I have kept down was a cantina bowl from Taco Bell that I had Friday with Amanda and her kiddos. Since then, even applesauce triggers a hacking fit. So, I have been drinking blueberry kefir and V8 smoothie in tiny sips.
I have tried so many allergy and cold medications that my face feels like it belongs to someone else. I brush my teeth and I can't FEEL the toothbrush. But my nose is still going nuts, Ben still has his cough-though not as bad any more. Chan is still going strong, I can tell the second she wakes up-she heralds the day with a bout of hacking. Her eyes are watery, too. Mine might be if I had any interest in looking in a mirror.
The worst of it is how WEAK I feel. I know it's low blood sugar, but my usual chores leave me panting and my head pounding. And I am sore from head to toe. That's likely dehydration. BLAH, I say. BLAH. My tennis elbow is acting up and I have not done anything more athletic than hold my Nook. :( I am really tired of feeling crappy.
