Nectar of the Gods

Blerch.

So, when it rains, it pours, right?

I have a fricking "cold" (or sinus infection, virus, whatever). I went to the beach on Thursday and came home with a slight headache, from what I thought was from being out in the sun. Then came the nausea, chills and fever, along with some lovely congestion and a sore throat.

Which has made me a blob that's been vacillating between the couch and my bed ever since.

NyQuill is wonderful, however it makes me so out of it, not to mention that sleep is elusive for everyone else in the house, including me. I've apparently been snoring so badly that I've woken up poor Sean not once, but TWICE last night. Unfortunately, in his attempts to get me to roll over he ended up waking me (you know how it is when you're sick-you truly don't get into a deep sleep), and I couldn't get back to sleep right away-at least, not until I dosed myself with more NyQuill.

Sean said that it was pretty funny though, to hear me snoring like a lumberjack. Of course, I have NO MEMORY of any of this, so I'm treating all of this as hearsay...

My mother insinuated that it's the alcohol in the medication that's knocking me out and later making me loopy. Perhaps I'll just have a slug of Brandy before bed and hope for the best. Or more NyQuill.

Ah, NyQuill - the Nectar of the (Infirm) Gods-I salute you-as long as you make me better.

You know what else is heaven: TheraFlu. Seriously. I refused to try it because I was all "Ew, a hot, lemon drink. I bet it's nasty." But then I got bronchitis and DH got it for me and ohmylord I fell in love with it. The nighttime lemon flavor one is the best, imo. It tastes like warm lemonade and has the same make-you-sleep effect as NyQuil without the leave-you-with-a-hangover results. Highly, highly recommended.

Feel better!

I'm sorry you are sick :(

Nyquil always makes me pass out within 30 mins flat. Tylenol PM does the trick too if I have a monster headache. Of course, I have to sleep for at least 8 hours or I will be a walking zombie.

Sending healthy vibes your way!
