I'm sick. - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
I'm sick.
My head is congested, I ache, I've spent the last two days on the verge of constant exhaustion and my throat feels like sandpaper. Swallowing isn't so much a reflex as it is an experiment in pain thresholds. Long ago, in the Before Time, I think I used to be able to swallow without searing agony. That's a long-distant memory now.

This had better not be strep.

Veteran of a race that should be over

Current Mood: sick sick
Current Music: Pam Tillis - Cleopatra, Queen of Denial

Go to bed. That might help... :)

There you go making sense again. Damn your female logic!

In all seriousness, though, I've spent most of the day in my bed or on the couch, drifting in and out of consciousness. I'm sleepy, but I can't stand laying around under the covers for another couple hours while I toss, turn, cough and feel generally miserable.

Who can be sick when they're thinking of Pam Tillis dancing around in Cleopatra make-up?

I have... no answer to that.

Okay, did you get this from Matthew, or did you give this to Matthew? He was sick yesterday, you know.

My current theory says he passed this lovely little bug to me. The foundation for my theory is that Matthew has been travelling on a PLAGUE TUBE (airplane) and I haven't.

So it's all the fault of this elleged Matthew that I'm sick with this cursed ail also? Please send him my regards, I'm off to swallow more icecubes. ;>

I apologize for any maladies I may have carried with me from that foreign land known as Upstate New York. Certainly it was never my intent to share!

Incidentally, I blame the plane, too.

You just need to snuggle up to a nice cozy pillow and sleep.

Seriously, hope you feel better soon! And remember, contrary to what was discussed yesterday, gin does not constitute a clear liquid for the purposes of resting up and getting better. (Now, for the purposes of resting up and gettng blotto'ed, well that's different...)

But hot toddies (aka lemon and whiskey) really help when you have a fever...

Hope you feel better!

Something that I find helps me when I have a sore throat ... gargling with a capfull of white vinegar ... I'm serious. It doesn't burn as much as expected, only a little eye wattering, but it seems to calm the pain down.
