Sick (warning: whiny post)

  1. Ok, let me just say that this sucks!
    I am sick as hell. Woke up a few days ago with a scratchy throat and a little nauseous... now I am feverish (101, not too bad), sore throat, headache, chest pain, nausea, body aches...
    Waah waah waah.
    Gonna go drink some hot tea.

    Hope everyone else is well.

    Good luck Reb. I had that too. Started the morning of the 19th just like you described. It's still lingering. I'm still congested and nasal sounding, and just generally don't have 100% of my energy back, but most of it's passed.

    Lots of fluids, vitamins, and massive amounts of Aquatabs helped. I think it's the expectorant that did the trick and kept my head from almost completely blowing up!

    Take care! Make someone bring you some chicken noodle soup in bed

    My kid had it. At first, I thought he was sick because of the 12 ( yes, 12!!) burritos from the Sam's Club giant pack that I bought....
    he was barfing and running to the potty all night....
    then, waaaaaay into the next day, we discovered....Temp of 102.

    oops.

    Sorry your sick Reb...I'll bet Reeses Pieces will make you feel better (at least the feeling sorry for self will improve).

    Had it to...still have the rare gunky sounding single cough 2+ weeks later.

    (at least I assume the cough is due to the bug and not the 2 pack a day habit...or my stopping the abx after 2 days because I realized the doc was wrong).

    Take care, and make *somebody* snuggle up and keep you warm

    I had it a couple of weeks ago, too. Like kids-r-fun, still have the cough. Take care of yourself, and I hope you feel better soon.
