Within a few hours, I went from feeling fine to death warmed over.
I've gathered the troops. Orange Juice. Neti Pot. Kiss my face cold and flu shower gel. Organic tea. Lotioned Kleenex. I was ready to face this cold head on, with all my natural remedies. St. Brett the Awesome even took night duty for Max so I could get some restorative sleep.
Then at 2 AM when I woke up stuffy and miserable, I had a revelation. I'm not pregnant. I'm not breastfeeding. I CAN TAKE REAL DRUGS!!! For the first time in over a year!! Woohooo! Bring it Sudafed.
So, I'm still stuffy and miserable. I look like everyone's favorite red nosed raindeer from constantly blowing my nose. But at least I'm well drugged.
Being a sick mommy is the suck.
