Half Days

While I did get some rest over the weekend, it was also a fairly busy time. In addition to working Saturday, I did a lot of errands as well. Sunday night, when I put my head on my pillow… it prompted a great deal of coughing. I didn’t get a great night’s sleep.

A Bad Case of the Hot Mouths

Fast forward to today, and I woke up with a sore throat. And unlike prior days, it just stayed around. At work, right around 10 AM, my nose began running like a faucet. So much so that I had to get up and go to the bathroom a few times. So much so that I began to seriously worry about becoming dehydrated.

A Lingering Cough

I got sick a few days ago, and this thing has stayed around. Usually, I’m only sick for a brief while… but whatever I have has settled into a cough tha just doesn’t want to go away.

A Not Quick Sick Day, Part 2

I could feel myself getting less useful, the longer I sat. And though there’s a part of me that feels like I should still be working, I knew I couldn’t work another full day. So I climbed in bed, put on a movie, and napped off and on.

A Not Quite Sick Day

Stayed home today because I started to get sick at work yesterday… and it just got progressively worse and worse. My goal was to attend a few meetings in the morning remotely, then take a sick day.

A Deep and Persistent Ache

There’s a particular strand of muscles, located somewhere near/beneath my right pectoral. I don’t even know how to describe it, as it feels like it’s buried inside my chest. But every time I cough or sneeze, that thing lights up like a Christmas tree.

Sick Day and Evening

The day started off with a stuffy nose, which possibly could have been due to allergies. By mid-afternoon, I was sniffling non-stop, and was pretty convinced I had caught the bug that’s been going around.

The DayQuils and NyQuils Tend to Blur Together

One disturbing thing is that I haven’t been able to taste much of anything, the last few days. I know it’s related to whatever is going on with this cold (sinus infection?), but if it doesn’t improve over the weekend… I guess I need to go see someone officially about that.

Sick Days and Little Sleep

Yesterday, I took the day off of work figuring I could rest up. As it turns out, I got worse as the day continued. Liz told me this is the same arc she experienced, a few days being in the “slightly sick” stage, and then a surprising downward turn. Despite me riding a constant see-saw of NyQuil and DayQuil, yesterday evening had me feeling more out of sorts than I’d been the last few days.

Coughing, Convalescence, Couch

In the evenings are usually the worst, when I’m on my back. The coughing gets much more pronounced, and when we go to bed… lately I’ve been coughing so much, I’ve been shaking the bed. Which results in Liz not getting a good night’s sleep, either.

Cat Naps and Insomnia

During the days, Liz and I have gotten in the habit of taking naps. We both get an ok amount of sleep at night, but I’ve been going back to bed around noon for a few hours. Yesterday was pretty funny, as Liz and I were almost rotating shifts in bed – I got up around 5PM, and she then went and took a nap until around 7PM or so.

Sick Day

I ended up calling in sick to work today. Around 11:00 AM, Liz and I rolled out of bed and made our way to the grocery store. We got a few supplies.
