Hello SparkFriends! A quick blog to say thank you for all the well wishes.
My cold is improving finally, and I'm beginning to feel better. I ended up going to Urgent Care, because I started having fevers and chills, and a terrible sore throat. I was coughing so much I couldn't sleep. I was worried I was getting strep throat, but a test showed it wasn't. I got a prescription for Tessalon Perles (which is a pill that helps suppress the cough reflex), and while it wasn't a miracle cure, it did help enough that I could get more sleep. I had days of eating only soft foods that wouldn't irritate my throat. But finally I feel like the worst is over, and I'm on the mend. Unfortunately, last night hubby starting having cold symptoms, so I think it's his turn for this now. I just hope he doesn't have it as bad as I did. This was the worst cold I've had in decades, I think. I just felt so weak and tired, and I wondered if it was the flu, but Urgent Care said it wasn't, and just a cold.
This has been a rough month! The rash had pretty much resolved when I got the cold. Then I noticed a small new patch, but I started using the cream right away, and it seems to be going away already too, so hopefully that's the end of it. I'm tired of being sick, and just want to feel well.
Now for the good news...I lost another two pounds this week!
Not that I was really trying, but just being sick I guess, and not having much of an appetite and fighting an illness probably burned calories. So I'm down nine pounds. I hope I can maintain that as I feel better. I always thought that I'd feel great when I lost weight, and yet haven't really had that feeling yet! And I'm behind with everything at the moment...work, housework, laundry, grocery shopping, etc., so I hope to get some energy soon to get things done!
Well, thanks for reading, and again thanks for the well wishes. I hope the next month is much more upbeat and fun! Spring should definitely be here this month. We had snow on Monday, but should have 70 degree weather on the weekend!
