Tales from the sick bed

I don’t get sick very often but when I do, I go down like a tranquilized animal.

I also become a huge baby, which is not a flattering side to me.

And Monday, the office bug got a hold of me and I went from, hey there’s a tickle in my throat, to I need to leave right now.

I even took a sick day, which I haven’t done in at least a year.

And being home, immobile and feeling awful, sucks.

First, cold/flu OTC meds are expensive yo, even the generic stuff. And I hate spending money on it, but if it’s supposed to work and I feel that awful, just take my credit card.

Second, daytime TV is awful. Thank god for HBO Go. That is my lifeline.

Third, sleeping is even more difficult than normal. I didn’t think that was possible.

Fourth, any modicum of concern of how you look, goes out the window. Still sportin’ the same PJs as yesterday, probs will be tomorrow too.

So clearly, lots of exciting things are happening in my world right now.

Time for more meds.

How is everyone else?

    Feel better love.

  2. aw, I hope you feel better soon!!

    yeah, when I get sick and I mean more than the average throat tickle and/or stuffy nose – I pretty much become a bed creature. and I’m exactly the same way when it comes to buying cold medicine!! $15 for 8 pills? they better cure EVERYTHING that ails me.

    whatever happened to the girl from iowa who wrote the blog about life starting over at 28? should we be concerned?

  5. Aww…feel better soon! I got a bug like that a month ago and it was awful. My neck was swollen and I couldn’t stop coughing. I accidentally coughed into CB’s mouth at one point. No good. Lol. Hope your bug is short-lived.

    when I get sick, I get knocked the F down.

    And it normally requires me to visit the doctor and the bill gets even HIGHER

    OTC meds cost WAY too much. Especially allergy meds. Ugh.

    I hope you feel better!
