Oh, Enough Already

You know, it's been almost two weeks and I STILL have this annoying cold.

You know what I say to that? Enough already!

Seriously, you know how hard it is to run like this?

I mean, I don't feel horrible. In fact, most of the day I am okay. It's the mornings and evenings that are hardest.

I did my 3.2 miles the other day (running and walking; I still can't run the whole way) thinking maybe it would actually clear my head a bit.

Wrong. It just gave me a splitting headache. I am hoping today is better.

Nights are the worst. That's when the coughing fits set in.

I haven't gotten much sleep this week as a result. So last night, I decided to take an Ambien, which I keep on hand for emergencies. Then Hubby came to bed. After rooting around in the bathroom cabinet for a bit, he emerged with some heavy duty cough syrup.

"Try this," he said.

I was a bit hesitant since I'd already taken that Ambien and the cough syrup contained codeine. But figured, what the hey.

Well, it worked. I slept like a rock. This morning it took a bit longer than usual to wake up. I'm still sort of congested, but at least I had a good night's sleep.

My brain is still a bit fuzzy. I feel about as clear as I look in my little cartoon image (click on it so you get to see a larger version). But things seem to be getting clearer, slowly but surely. Which is good, 'cause now I have to get to work. Ugh.
