I’ve managed to go at least 2 years without a cold and since October, I’ve had to contend with three of them – yes three!
I’ve been fighting with a cold bug for about a week and a half now. It started with just chest congestion, then a cough. Before I knew what hit me, it blossomed into a full-blown cold – sinus pain, congestion, runny nose with all the unpleasant side effects. Now, the major cold symptoms are gone, and I’m left once again with the chest congestion, cough and overall crappy feeling.
I’m hoping it’s not starting all over again. I can’t afford it – between cough drops, cough syrup, Kleenex, Vicks Vapo-Rub, nose spray, Tylenol Cold and Sinus and Vitamin C, I’m going broke. On the upside, I haven’t had an appetite either, so I guess with what I’m saving groceries, will help pay for all the cold meds. Just another reason to despise these Canadian winters...*ugh*
