I can’t tell if I have allergies or a cold or both. Not the flu, I’ve had that before, but I’m about 2 weeks into not feeling well, and I’m feeling somewhat worse. Congestion, aches, I’m breaking out everywhere, my ears hurt, I cough some parts of the day…ugh.
I have stuff to do! Like a lunch meeting and an increasingly wonderful relationship and family drama and a car to clean out and a side hustle to work and I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS.
Isn’t that how it works though? When does anyone ever have time for this?
If nothing else, whatever has befallen me is serving to remind me that I could improve how I care for myself. That rest day? Hasn’t happened yet (rest days are a mental as well as physical thing for me, and I have to be very intentional about mental rest). I ate processed garbage for dinner yesterday because that’s what was socially acceptable, then I felt horrible (Oreos and chocolate pudding and Cool Whip are delicious, the processed potato salad and cole slaw less so, but it all made my body hate me). I am sleeping a little less than 7 hours a night (I’ve said before, I need about 9).
I’m not doing much to promote healing, at the same time I’m not masking it with over the counter remedies. I am therefore still sick, and very cranky.
And I just wrote out what I need to do so…fine. But if you have any remedies, let me know!
