Sick. Illness. Under the weather. Sick as a Dog...

All those terms, and so much more, relate to exactly how I am feeling at this exact moment. Why am I blogging about it?? Well. Quite frankly to let go of frustration as I'm sure my lovely husband is sick and tired of hearing me complain! So yes, this means that you, my lovely reader, get to read my complaints!

My ears of stuffed up. They hurt. I am half way thinking perhaps I have an ear infection??? My throat is KILLING ME!!! I'm back and forth on if it's just a really bad sore throat or if I indeed have strep, again. I don't have the white puss pockets but I do have these bumps on my throat. Either way. It can't be good. I keep feeling like I'm running a low grade fever. Just enough to leave you lousy feeling. No meds that I've taken have been helping. :-( My body aches. I can't sleep at night. (This is the biggest complaint!!!!) I cannot sleep. I lay awake. After I finally do drift off to sleep, I wake again without any reasons. This happened the night before last and last night. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO over not being able to sleep!!!!!!!! Not even Benedryl is helping me sleep. Okay. Let me tell you, if you do not know me, this is the strangest thing ever! I am a sleeper. Always have been, hope to always be. I sleep thru so much. It doesn't take me but one nano second to usually fall asleep and it's a very rare occassion that I wake during the night. Yes. I am one of the few that can sleep 8-12 hours straight without waking for any reason... Not the last two nights though. I have sneezed in my sleep! Who sneezes while sleeping???? I have blown my nose while trying to sleep. I have coughed. I have gotten up just to get out of bed. I am miserable...

So, that's that.

Back to the movies. Back to the couch. Back to trying to get better. Oh yes, and we have Dentist appts this morning too. Gee. That will be fun feeling like this. :-( I won't be surprised if they turn me away and tell me to reschedule!

So sorry that you are sick. Sounds like what I had 2 weeks ago. I am not a good sleeper but do get me 8 hours every night.
Try vicks, advil, and lots and lots of water. Don't worry once you start to feel better you will sleep alot. The other day I slept for 12 hours. Hang in there!! You are right though nothing works and you feel miserable...
