Down with the sniffles

by spiceaholic on October 28, 2009

I’m sure you all have woken up at some point and just known that you would be getting sick soon.

That groggy, prickly, achy, just general “ehhhhhh” feeling that greets you in the morning and is a harbinger of future sickness to come.

Yup, that was me this morning.

I’ve been sneezing on and off the past couple days and have felt tired and run down, but have been chalking it up to a possible combo of fall allergies, the weather changing, and just being worn down from tax season. Today I knew from the moment I opened my eyes what was coming.

I took some Vitamin C supplements, popped a DayQuil, and debated whether I was getting a fever or not. My normal body temperature is lower than 98.6 (thanks, slow metabolism!) so its hard to say sometimes. And Mr. Spice is always hot, so I can’t use him to see if I feel warm. Then I debated whether I was just being a baby and not wanting to go in or not, so I made myself get ready for work and decided I could always come home if I felt worse.

Yeah, I never made it to work. I hadn’t even gone a few miles when I turned around and came home. Since then I have tried resting in the guest bedroom, setting up camp on the comfy couch downstairs in the TV room, and willing myself to get over it.

Anyway, so if you don’t hear from me for a couple days you know why!

Off to guzzle more water and get some rest . . .

Awww, I hope you feel better soon. I woke up with that feeling yesterday but miraculously, I didn’t end up getting sick.
Btw, are you sure about bodies having lower temps going through slower metabolism. I’m usually in the 97 range….but I used to believe(or would like to believe) I have a higher metabolism. That was my justification for eating desserts everyday! 😀
