What a rough week. I’m so glad it’s over.
After getting over the flu last weekend, I went right into a full blown head cold. Pounding headache, congestion that wouldn’t relieve, and a gnarly dry cough brought me to my knees early Tuesday morning as I tried to get ready for work.
I made my way into the office and dealt with one production company after another. As the day went on, the pressure behind my nose wasn’t getting any better. I had one person telling me to take this, one person telling me to take that, one person telling me to go to the doctor (for a head cold??), and one person telling me to go home and go to bed. I chose none of the above.
Throughout the night, I laid awake coughing and coughing, wishing I could bang my head against the ground and make all the pain go away. It was a hard night to get through.
Wednesday morning, in a sad attempt to get through the day, I allowed trainers and owners to talk me into going home. I was just too sick to be around people. I stopped at the store on my way home, and grabbed two bottles of NyQuil. NyQuil is my
porn best friend when I can’t sleep.
For the rest of the week, I laid on the couch trying to break through the coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, and sore throat. Many chugs of NyQuil, and several antihistamines later, I’m feeling good enough to be around the living.
Back to work. Happy Monday, Readers!
