Gah, wretched illness

I have been sick these last several days. My boyfriend, bless him, was ill and now he’s passed his illness on to me. After two days my fever disappeared, but there’s still the putrid throat, the coughing and the fact that my nose feels like concrete and I keep having to jam toilet paper up the nostrils to stop it leaking. Just my luck to get some severe summer cold or what have you. I’ve been gulping various nostrums (NyQuil/DayQuil, etc) but they haven’t had any effect. I’ve thought about going to the doctor but I don’t think there’s much he can do for me.

Anyway, I will probably not be updating for a bit.

    Get well soon! Hydrate yourself (says the nurse)

    Get well soon! I agree with Mary, water will flush your system!

    Water, Vicks, tylenol. They make a good tea for clearing out the head, but I doubt you are in any condition to go out right now. Anything eucalyptyic would help. Feel better soon.

    And yeah, now that I think of it, if it’s not a flu/24 hour bug, get you to a Dr., in case of antibiotics. You never know……

    Feel better soon. Those cold medicines are garbage, better off with aspiring, vicks and plenty of fluids and sleep.
