So very, very tired

I have not been sleeping well lately.  The biggest reason is this stupid cough leftover from a cold that will not go away. 

It started last Tuesday, February 28 and I had a sore throat and an annoying little cough all day.  I took some Nyquil that night but it kept me from falling into a deep sleep instead of making things better.  I stayed home from work on February 29 - and I slept almost the whole day.  The next 9 nine days have been a mix of feeling better only to be knocked down by a night time coughing attack.  Monday night it was 1:30am, last night it was 3:00am. 

I hate my lungs.  They like to hold on to phlegm and gunk.  I guess it is retribution from them for being born at 32 weeks without pretty things like steroids to pump them up.  Halls are my best friend right now.  That and my mountain of pillows to keep me propped up.  I also love hot drinks with no milk.

My goal for today is to not fall sleep at my desk at work.



  1. Ugh... I hate being sick. I have lungs that like to hang to ickiness too. I blame it on having a bio-mom who smoked throughout her pregnancy.

    I hope that you feel better soon! ((hugs))

  2. That stinks! I hope you feel better soon ((hugs))
