Whamo! I'm knocked on my ass again with this bug. Thankfully the body aches and lava throat have left the building but now my head, chest and lungs are loaded with mucus. My eyes keep seeping fluids and I have an "extremely irritating cough", thanks Tom. My wardrobe of choice consists of a sweatshirt with a pocket in the front where I stash gobs of kleenex in case of a mucus spouting sneeze attack. I need to tie a plastic baggy around my waist for quick disposal of nasty snot rags. So as long as the mucus is clear I don't have to worry about infection right? I know if it starts to turn green then it's time to see a doctor and get some antibiotics. So until then I'll just keep hacking and spewing, sneezing and blowing. Not to be gross, but last night while I was surfing the net I had a severe coughing fit and out shot a globule that landed on my lap top screen. Ok I guess that was gross.
On a positive note, I think I'm addicted to Theraflu Nighttime Severe Cold Warming Syrup. This stuff is fantastic. I've loaded up on so many capsules and medicinal liquids over the last 5 days and really nothing has helped with my symptoms. However, this stuff warms your insides and makes you feel tingly (especially when you double up on the dosage). And I like taking the Nighttime meds during the day because it doesn't really put me to sleep it just makes me feel all floaty-like as I go on about the day...and that's not a bad thing.
