Cold from Hell: Day 8

The Cold from Hell continues to throw interesting things my way. The Sudafed, which previously had me wired up like a crackhead, is now making me slleeeeeepppppyyy. Which pretty much sucks, seeing as how I'm at work, and as much as I would like to just put my head down on my desk like a little kid, I'm not sure the Boss would appreciate it.

Oh, and I just went to make a cup of coffee, in a desperate bid to maintain consciousness, and all of a sudden I got so dizzy I had to grab onto the counter to keep from keeling over. I'm guessing that this has something to do with the fact that my sinuses, hell, my entire head, feels like it's filled with concrete. I mean, seriously, every time I try to take a breath something deep inside my head squeaks, like it's saying, "Get the hell out of here, you damn air! Can't you tell there's no room in here?!"

Teh awesome!

Man, this sounds like what I had last year around this time. I got the flu, and I guess it's been a long time since I've really gotten a flu because I had that dizzy crap too and it knocked me on my butt (thankfully, only figuratively). I was at a professional development session, and every time I'd move my head to look at someone I got vertigo. Let's not mention it was snowing that day, so everything was slippery outside, and I had to walk up and down the stairs throughout the day to get where I was going. It was not pleasant.

I hope you feel better soon. Mint tea always makes me feel better in times like these.

Right now I'm at the blow-your-nose and coughcoughcough stage, so hopefully it's on its way out. On Day 9. *groan*
