Thirteen Things That Stink About Being Sick

1.It's the one instance when chocolate does not make you feel better.

2.The fact that your world is suddenly wrapped in a foggy shrinking bubble filled with white noise and one tinny neverending whistle.

3. The issue of tissue. If you buy generic you will wind up with a scab the size of Utah where your nose used to be. However those lotion filled fancy hankies have their own special and slightly oily quirks.

4.The Pea-as in the old Fairytale The Princess and The-? No position, no location, no downy soft pillow or egyptian cotton sheet is comfortable enough to suit your aching limbs.

5. The weird cure alls you're willing to try after Dayquil and Flu-Be-Gone arent doing it. Onion and mustard neck wraps, Cayenne tea, nasal irrigation {that's always fun}

6.{Warning-icky ahead} Throwing any ladylike class or elegance out the window. There will be mucus. It wont be pretty. You will look like a plague-ridden character from Stephen King's The Stand, you may sound like a wounded bear. This is not a sexy time.

7. Lack of concentration. You could play a computer game, watch a lot of tv, and nap. But if you need to write or concentrate, or do anything that requires more than groggy slightly nonsensical conversation-you are out of luck.

8.Being a grown up. Being sick is just not as satisfying now that I'm an adult. I mean-no one likes to be sick but I remember being pampered. I got to stay home from school, propped up on the couch while people fed me soup and patted my head and let me watch anything I wanted. My hubby does spoil me and no one is a better caretaker-but I am different. I have things to do-errands, plans, WRITING. I dont have the luxury or time to thoroughly enjoy it :}

9.The fact that I have to stop at 9 because I'm too tired to write out the rest of the reasons being sick stinks. LOL {cough}. But you get the picture.

Oh RG - I'm sorry you're so sick. Ick! I'm using the lotion tissues right now and, because I'm wearing my glasses, it keeps making smears on my glasses which I then have to clean on my shirt. Ugh.

Actually, your voice is kinds got that husky/sexy thing going on. ;)
But it does suck to be sick!
Hey-to keep your nose from going raw, keep a small tub of Vaseline on hand. Every time-and I mean every single time-you wipe your nose, dab a little of the stuff on. Yes, it's an ongoing process, but it protects your nose from runniness and each time you wipe with the kleenex, your skin will have protection. I swear, after an hour or two, it's just habit. Keep it on your night table or in the pocket of your robe.
Hope you're better soon!

LOL. My best friend is sick right now, so I read them out loud to her. She started laughing so hard, she's having a coughing fit. I do take good care of her. LOL.
Hope you feel better soon.
Trust Eden to find the POSITIVE part of being sick. LOL.
