For the past three days I have had the flu/cold combo that is making the rounds. I didn't ask for it. I don't want it. I wish I didn't have it.
But we can't always get what we want. So here is how I am dealing with it.
First of all I am grateful that I don't work or have young children around. That would really crimp my style. I just want to sleep.
My sick routine is to sleep till noon, have breakfast, take a couple of benedryl, go back to bed wake up around 3, take some Comtrex Cough and Cold, read and then back to bed.
Repeat every 3 hours as necessary. Until bedtime.
Comtrex has been my saviour and I recommend it to everyone suffering the stuffy sinus, cough, headache, sore throat, blahs. Within a few minutes the symptoms go away. The benedryl kicks in, and its good night Irene.
I'll be back in form soon, till then keep the shiny side up.
