I was quite enjoying the roll I was on with posting and keeping up with blogs until out of nowhere I developed a nasty cough and subsequent chest congestion. Considering I rarely ever get sick, which has occurred twice now since November, I found it rather disconcerting that I had to deal with it.
A cough started last Wednesday evening and refused to be satiated by my tried and true home remedy. After a rough night, I dragged myself to work the following morning only to find that there was no way I was going to make it through the day and after 2.5 hours, I went home. That was after making a pitstop for some OTC meds since the Rx cough syrup I had was at My Love’s house. Upon arriving home and changing into my pjs, I took the OTC and went to sleep; that was at 10:00am. Save for needing water and having to pee, I remained in bed until 4:45am the next morning and got up feeling somewhat better and went to work.
Being sick took it’s toll on me physically and mentally because I felt wiped out and not really wanting to do much of anything nor was I in the mood for any bullshit or drama. In spite of myself, I didn’t turn into the Wicked Witch of the West and made it through the weekend taking as little of the Rx as possible.
Well, here I am week later, still wrestling with this petulant cough that seems to enjoy teasing me into thinking it’s gone and then it rears its head again. How do people deal with getting sick all the time? This ish is for the damn birds…Geesh!
I’m trying y’all to catch up on my blogging, reading, and all the daily things your girl is required to do.
On a positive note, I’m starting my 40-day journey with Maya today. Given today is Valentine’s (smallentine’s) Day, it seemed a good day to start and the first lesson is Love. I’m dedicated to sticking with it for the next 40. I mentioned that when I got through it, I’d post about it; I will. Sharing it was we do right?!
Well, now y’all knnow why I’ve been incognegro for the past week. Stay healthy!
Live the life you love; love the life you live!
