Like being hit in the face with a folding chair

Saturday, February 01, 2014

I stand before you, an object lesson. A cautionary tale. A living, breathing, coughing, sneezing, feverish exhibit of the adage, "Be careful what you wish for." We have plans for the evening, a friend's birthday party, but the weather is so dismal that I dared say, "Ugh; I wish we didn't have to go out in this." Not 20 minutes later, I was hit with this misery like it was a runaway train. The express train to Miseryville. There was nothing of "feeling something coming on." No, "is that a tickle in my throat?" This leaped out of a dark alley and mugged me.

My only hope is that it passes just as quickly as it arrived. Good grief.

    Lots of rest.

May I suggest FIFIFRIZZLE's remedy, which I love?

Mix in a mug, fresh ginger, honey, lemon, hot water and some whiskey or rum. (FIFI adds garlic, but that just seems wrong to me.) Drink enough and you won't care that you are sick.

Something like that hit me several weeks ago. I went from feeling pretty good to refusing to get off the futon within a few hours. I didn't have a fever, but I had the body aches and the exhaustion; I'm not sure if it was a weird flu or just a bad cold.

The oddest thing is that although I was really tired, I didn't sleep a lot. Usually, when I'm sick, all I want to do is sleep. I think I got ten hours one day, but the rest of the time my sleep pattern was pretty normal.

The worst of it was over in about 5-6 days, but the cough lingered for another week. It still isn't completely gone.

I hope yours decides to move on a little more quickly than mine.
