So Sick Of Being Sick!

At least I got some sleep last night. Fell asleep on the sofa around 5:30 yesterday evening. Work up about an hour later and decided to go take a hot shower, then went right to bed. Slept for a few about 3 or 4 hours and then woke up again. Went back to sleep and then woke up again around 3:30 am. Back to sleep and then Hiker wanted to go outside around 5:00 am. She came back in and we went back to bed again and slept until she woke me up to feed her. Thought about staying in bed all day, but my sinuses were killing me when I’d lay down, so I decided to get out of bed and crash on the sofa in the living room. My sinuses didn’t seem to hurt as much sitting up.
When I first came down with this cold, I didn’t feel good, but at least I was hungry and wanted to eat. Now I’m not that hungry. I forced myself to eat a bowl of cereal. I know I need to eat to get my strength back, but I just don’t feel like fixing anything.
When I was younger and I’d get sick, I’d just keep going, even to work if I didn’t feel too bad. There are things I need to do, go pick up my tax papers, pay some bills, but I just don’t feel like doing anything. My tax man lives 25 miles away, so there is no way I can drive up there the way I am feeling. My good friend Sally said that she would drive me up to my tax man’s house on Friday if I’m not feeling up to it. I should probably try to go out and start the car since I have not started it in about 6 days. Hope I don’t run out of anything, because I don’t even feel like driving over to the store.
I was feeling somewhat better, then it seemed that I suddenly felt worse. I’m thinking it’s because I am not eating as well as I should. I’m starting to lose my appetite. Nothing sounds good. I’ve been forcing myself to eat some, but I know it’s not enough, plus I do not feel like fixing anything that take more than 5 minutes to prepare.
I sure cannot wait until I am back to “normal”. Not that’ve I’ve ever been normal (LOL).


  1. Being sick is a terrible feeling, i know. It's normal to have some days that are worse than others. You just have to ride out the storm. Do you like soup? Not real labor intensive in the kitchen if you have a can or two. Might help. Just hang in there. REST is the best thing for you. That and staying hydrated.

  2. Just make sure you drink lots.I know that you know this as well. Being sick is no fun and even worse when you're all alone.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
