What a night!
So I'm not sure if I've mentioned this....but.... I've been sick since the end of December! I am so tired of being sick and tired! I went through a coarse of 10 days of antibiotics to treat bronchitis. Well guess what it didn't really work. I'm still coughing, not as much as before but certainly not completely better. Last night I stayed late at work to prepare for open house this weekend. I didn't feel terrible but I was tired and congested. By the end of the day I was starving. I got home about 6:30. I walked in and had lost my appetite. I had a generous piece of Irish soda bread and some seltzer water for diner. I fell asleep sitting up in the chair by 7:15. I woke myself up and decided I was going to bed at 8. That surprised everyone as I usually 'tuck' the kids into bed and N doesn't go to bed until 9. I just couldn't do it last night. I got 'n' into bed and as I was tucking her in I got the worst chills ever! I can't remember ever feeling like that in my life! I was literally shaking and shivering. It was all I could do to get into my PJ's and into bed with my heating pad. Lucky for me N was there ready to take care of me. He warmed up my rice eye pillows and covered me up with my bathrobe. I was sound asleep by 8:30 and slept through the night until my alarm went off at 6:30. Today has brought on more coughing, sniffles and sneezing fits! I can't wait to feel healthy so that I can work all week and then enjoy my days off rather than feel like I have to rest on those days so that I can make it through my work week. If anyone has any home remedies or ideas on how I can kick this nastiness please, please, please leave a comment.
