My head aches every time I cough (which is frequent) and my sniffing sounds like the milk-frothing machine in a coffee shop. I take as much medication as the warnings allow and effervescent vitamin C tablets are currently a staple in my diet. Tissues are blown into (making my head hurt even more) and throat tablets sucked…..its only been three days but it feels like three months.
I hate being ill….
I lay on the sofa for most of the day feeling sorry for myself. I watched a movie, then a daytime television show about renovating property, had lunch (rendered tasteless by the cold and numbed taste buds), and then watched another movie.
I read the back of the ibuprofen box to see if it would react badly with paracetamol. No mention so I popped a couple of pills. Still feel bad.
24 Hour news loops back on itself again…..
I am off work (the only positive) but my Blackberry buzzes regularly and I engage in work-related email conversations, more to alliviate the boredom than out of any professional imperative.
Oh…earthquake in Turkey! Stop feeling sorry for yourself, Jon. Its only a cold, you wimp.
