I'm still feeling cruddy, not sure if it is a cold or just hyped up allergies due to the high winds and higher pollen count we have had the past few days. I really want to curl up and go back to sleep. I find that when I'm not feeling well ... Read more

The crud got me good. I stayed down all weekend and dosed myself with meds, tea and sleep. I stayed home Monday and Tuesday as much as I hated to do so. I slowly started to feel better and yesterday I felt like myself again. As a matter, I feel ... Read more
