Thought I'd reintroduce myself, 'cause it seems like days since I have visited this space.
Since I've gotten older, I get fewer colds, but they seem worse. I started on Wednesday morning with a sore throat and by the afternoon, was a drippy incoherent achy mess, unable to make the simplest decision or put together a proper English sentence. Home and to bed, stat!
By Thursday, fortified by medication, I was able to go out a little. Friday evening, my right ear popped clear, enabling me to stop feeling as if my head was wrapped in wool. Today, I got the left ear back--I appreciate that, because of the two, it's the less deaf. I can think today, and I can skip the pseudoephedrine and not drip all over the place. (Stuff's bad for my blood pressure.) Hopefully, will continue getting better and better; trying to eat well and rest and all that.
Colds at any time of year are yukky, but spring and summer colds are the yukkiest. Glad to be back! :-)
