I HATE BEING SICK


Hi everyone, this is what my life has been like for 5 days. I got some nasty virus. It started with a sore throat when I was in Argentina, which I attributed to the cold spring weather there. Took a few aspirin and so I thought I got well. When I came back I start having fever, sore throat, stuffy nose, coughing and now even sore eyes. Normally when I am sick I just take over the counter medicine, stay in bed for a few days and I will be well again. What I got is pretty potent, whatever I took is not helping and I have to go and see the doctor.

She gave me some very strong medicines and I am groggy all the time. She also advises me to have plenty of rest which is hard to do when you keep coughing every minutes. I was up all night. I have made the couch my place of rest. I’ve watch so much TV and it is starting to bore me. Anyway, I will be away from blogging for a while until I am well again. Take care everyone!!

P/s thank you all my FB friends who advised me on what to take for the cough. I will be trying them out.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I am so much better now except for the coughing. Still having it but hopefully it will go away soon.

Stephanie, we moved from the East Coast early this year and we are in San Francisco now so we are not affected by the Sandy. But friends and family there were badly affected by it. Hopefully they are able to recover soon.
