coughing up a lung  

It’s 6:40am and I’ve been hopelessly awake for almost an hour, thanks to a wracking cough and high pressure system in my sinus cavities. I am exhausted and smell of Vicks Vapor Rub, and all I want is to get some more sleep.

The cats, on the other hand, want me to feed them.

*tries to sleep*

oh sweetie i wish we could get you some benadryl.

maybe a shot of whiskey in hot tea?

Ah, even if you could I wouldn't take it. Benadryl puts me to sleep, Sudafed makes me cranky. Or maybe it's the other way around. Either way, I don't take either of them. :)

::::nods::: sudafed makes me cranky. and i can't wake up from benadryl at all so i totally understand. :::grins:::

there's nothing worse than wanting to sleep and then not being able to. i get all growly.

Sweetie if they were our cats they'd be licking the vapor rub off of you.

Ugh. Jane Yolen reports similar, so at least you're in good company?

Had the sinus sludge myself earlier this month so I can tell you it does end. Do you have access to Mucinex over there? Fabulous stuff.

Yuck. Hope you feel better soon!

Here's hoping the cold goes away ASAP!

You don't read so well... Hugs and I am sending healing energy. As a former very sickly child I know what it is to be in a state like that. Due to my tonsilitis when I was smaller I could choke myself... So I hope it's nothing too serious.

I'm sorry you're sick and I hope you feel better but every time I scroll past this post on my friends page I think it says "coughing up a hug" and it makes me giggle. :)

Hot water with lemon in it always does wonders for me when I've got cold-crud going on. I hope you've managed to get lots of sleep!

*coughs up a hug for you* :)
