The Joys of Being Sick

Ahhh…..the joys of getting sick. I am currently down with a bad case of sore throat, flu and a little fever. And I spent all my time on the bed – sleeping and resting. That’s what is cool about being ill, you get some time off and get re-acquainted with your cozy bed. But of course, you feel like crap and you can’t really sleep or rest at all. My nose gets blocked and I can’t breathe properly, especially when laying down. I wake up feeling worse than before anyway. And when you get up in the hopes of getting something done, you feel like there is a ton of bricks on your shoulders. In my case, it feels like it’s on my head. Luckily, there is not much there. Eating food is even worse. Food tastes bland and it’s very difficult to swallow. I found a brilliant solution to this, wash down your food with a lot of water! It works. I think it works with raw Castor oil as well.

The doctor gave me a solution to “unblock” my nose. Sort of a little bottle with some miracle liquid in it and all you have to do is to apply a few drops on(in) your nose. Well, the problem is you need to do that very often, so instead of trying to sleep, you spend your time applying the solution. I gave up in the end. If only someone thought of an automated system to apply the solution without you having to do anything, you could earn millions!

Well if you are interested, I feel much better than yesterday, thank you for your concern. My legs and back are no longer stiff and my shoulders feel fine now. And best of all, my nose is no longer blocked. I can breathe again. Food still tastes funny but who cares. And yes, I can go back to blogging again. Depending on whether you like pathetic blogs, it could be a good or bad thing.

PS: The raw Castor oil thing above is a joke. DO NOT DRINK IT. It is a laxative. If you have already drank it, please go to the doctor and have your brain checked.
