I’m sick. REALLY sick. Sadly I fear it may be the flu, but I’m holding out hope it will just be one kick ass cold. Every part of my body hurts, my head is full of nasty shit and I’m rolling through a box of tissues a day. I had SO thought for sure this was a bad allergy attack the past few days. Heck I even felt GOOD yesterday. But no, today it is fever, sore throat, aches, pains, sniffles, snot, and sleeping.
Being sick in the Diva Den, if one has to be sick, rocks. Women being nurturers immediately start taking care of you. Diva Mom insists that I need to see the doctor tomorrow but I’m fighting that. Told her I wasn’t going too, she said yes I was, I said you cannot make me, and Diva Jeanne pipes in and says “I’ve got $50 on Grandma”. The little traitor! Diva Boo made me a snot-rag bag for putting used tissues in so I could just sit still and not have to keep getting up to go to the trash can. Diva Mom brought home some Alka Seltzer Plus, which I swear is the best stuff around for getting one back up and moving. I also took Mucinex DM, which has helped control the flow of crap out of my head and the resulting cough.
I have slept all day, relocating once to the floor of the family room before going back to bed. I had hoped to watch the Browns kick the Steelers ass but that game wasn’t on here, so was watching Baltimore and New England, which I found surprising that Baltimore was doing such a great job. I usually cheer for anyone playing the Browns, Ravens or Steelers as they are division rivals. So watching the Ravens holding there own against the Patriots was interesting. I gave up and went to bed, just feeling way too crappy to stay awake. Diva Mom drugged me up and I crashed. Don’t ya love when a fever breaks? Sweating like I’ve been laying in the hot sun all day without a beer in sight, and the nightmare that always seems to accompany the fever breaking. Sucks but I DO feel a bit better.
While under the influence of the meds I figured it was wise to finally eat something so while I’m inhaling this sandwich I figured I’d blog a bit. But I’m not long for this world, going to be curling back up in my bed with my teddy bear here very soon. I really wish I had a TV in my room, I hate missing the games. Not that I’d have seen much, I’ve slept so much, but still would be nice. Okay, time to take my germ party back to my bed and get some more rest. OH the joy of being ill, BLAH.
