Home, Sick.

I feel like my body’s given up on me. Last Friday I woke up feeling like I had a cold coming on, but was hopeful that it would pass. Well, it didn’t. I’ve been staying home for most of the week, drinking tea and living off of soup, but it hasn’t helped me any. I’ve been doing everything I can think of to kick this cold, but I still feel lousy and my coughing is so loud that it’s painful. I haven’t slept well in almost two weeks, and it’s really starting to get to me. Every night I toss and turn, cough some more, feel my throat dry out and my eyes water, always too hot or too cold… Feeling awful all the time has broken me. I can’t keep my spirits up and look forward to anything when all I can do is lie here sick and pathetic. *Sigh* I think I’ll go to bed, even though it’s really early. I’m going to try to get a doctor’s appointment tomorrow. I doubt there’s anything they can do besides tell me to rest, but it’s worth a try.

    Sick is always sick, no matter what it is. Get yourself to the doctor Janine, hope you get some sleep and feel better!
