If ONLY I were this cute. Seriously. However, this is not my current state of cuteness.
I look in the mirror and all I can think is that someone switched my nose. I have someone else’s red nose. I’m pretty sure I’m the victim of a drive-by clowning.
I do have this little guy’s almost closed puffy eyes. And I totally have his “whatever” attitude.
You’ve guessed by now that I’ve been laid low (lain low? Whatever!) by some vicious little trollop of a respiratory virus. Ears, eyes, nose, throat, chest…you name it and that virus is kicking its butt. My butt.
I’m on day 10. Yep. Day. Ten. No end in sight.
I’ve given it to my Ops Manager and my husband. So, two people I rely on are pretty much just giving me the stink eye anytime I make eye contact.
Feed a cold; starve a fever? Or is it feed a fever?
I need help people. What are your tried and true remedies? My husband has me inhaling green tea steam. And I have to say that’s worked better than just about everything else. (I don’t look like the picture on the right either. She is way too perky to be involved in Snot Wars 2011.)
Some folks have pushed z-this and z-that at me. Others have their favorite allergy/decongestant type medication. My mother keeps telling me to go to the doctor. (But I think that’s just retaliatory for my making her go to the doctor a couple of weeks ago.)
What do you swear by? Is it just sleep I need? Will anything make this cold/nasal nastiness go away quicker or is time the great healer?
